He is licensed Professional Engineer and a Licensed Site Remediation Professional in the State of New Jersey. He has successfully designed and implemented several remediation technologies including in-situ bioremediation, in-situ chemical oxidation, air sparging, bioslurping, soil vapor extraction, P&T, LNAPL recovery systems using dual phase extraction and skimmer pumps.
A SUCCESSFUL BROWNFIELD CLEANUP SITE
The Site operated as an aircraft parts manufacturing and metal plating in NY. VOC was detected in soil, gas and groundwater and metal was detected in groundwater. Site was registered under the Brownfield Cleanup Program. Client intended to have the Site completely redeveloped for final use. RA included removal of contaminated soils/sediments from the bottoms of the drywell/leaching pool structures, and collection of post-excavation samples. Post remediation investigation indicated elevated VOCs in soil, vapor. The selected remedial action RA included institutional controls annual site inspections and engineering controls (engineered cap), automotive ventilation system inside the building, a soil vapor extraction (SVE) system and MNA of groundwater. The operational results have shown the system has performed as efficiently as anticipated and removed sufficient VOC mass from the subsurface to prevent off-site migration of VOCs within a relatively short duration. The RA and earned roughly $700,000 in tax credits for the client.
