Remedial Action Components at the Second Street Sub-Site Source area groundwater pump and treatment Soil Vapor Extraction Source material removal remediation Downgradient groundwater plume in-situ well stripping Enhanced biological in-situ injection well treatment The implementation of these remedial components has resulted in the lessening of risk to human health and the environment from exposure to contaminated site media. For example, through Black & Veatch’s remedial action services at the source area, the original groundwater contaminant concentration has been reduced by 75 percent, and soil vapor concentrations have been reduced by more than 95 percent. Black & Veatch is performing long-term response operations and maintenance on the system and has assisted the EPA in several five-year reviews. In addition to producing high-quality work that met all of the EPA’s requirements, Black & Veatch reduced costs throughout the projects by scheduling site activities under different work assignments during the same timeframes. This reduced the number of required personnel and individual trips to each site. Since the project’s inception in 1996, Black & Veatch has maintained the same key staff, which allows them to complete tasks more efficiently and demonstrates their commitment to longevity of project teams.
