Soil & Groundwater Investigations
ADS Can Perform All Investigations Involving Petroleum-Related Contamination
New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Licensed Subsurface Evaluators are on staff to manage all aspects of a remediation project involving both soil and groundwater contamination from an existing underground storage tank (UST). ADS will perform a soil investigation using a photoionization detector (PID) to determine the extent of the soil contamination in the area of the former tank.
During the course of the soil investigation, a groundwater investigation will be triggered if fractured shale, bedrock and/or groundwater are encountered within 2 feet of the final soil sampling depth. In order to perform the groundwater investigation, a determination will need to be made whether to install a temporary well point or a permitted monitoring well on the property. The two types of monitoring wells used for performing the groundwater investigation are described below.
Installation Of A Temporary Well Point Via Geoprobe
ADS will install a temporary well point using Geoprobe® drilling methods within 10 feet downgradient from the former tank excavation. In the event there is no free product and the groundwater sampling results are below New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection groundwater quality standards, a Remedial Action Report including the groundwater investigation will be submitted to NJDEP for review.
The groundwater samples collected from the temporary well point will be forwarded to an NJDEP-certified laboratory and analyzed for volatile organic (VO+15) and base neutral (BN+15) compounds. A field and trip blank will accompany the groundwater samples to the laboratory for quality control/quality assurance (QA/QC) purposes.
Installation of a Permitted Monitoring Well via Well Drilling Rig
ADS will install an NJDEP-permitted monitoring well within 10 feet downgradient from the former tank excavation using a well drilling rig. The monitoring well will be installed using hollow stem augers, air rotary or a combination of both drilling methods.
Upon completing the monitoring well installation and after the required 14-day waiting period, ADS will collect groundwater samples from the monitoring well for laboratory analysis. The groundwater samples will be forwarded to an NJDEP-certified laboratory and analyzed for VO+15 and BN+15. A field and trip blank will accompany the groundwater samples to the laboratory for QA/QC purposes.
In the event there is no free product and the groundwater sampling results are below the NJDEP groundwater quality standards, a Remedial Action Report, including the groundwater investigation, will be submitted to NJDEP for review. Upon issuance of a No Further Action (NFA) determination by NJDEP, ADS will abandon the monitoring well and submit a Well Decommissioning Report to NJDEP.
