Client: Major Developer
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Contract Amount: $80,000
A developer’s 8,000 gallon temporary fuel storage tank was sabotaged during construction of a10-acre site and an estimated 4,000 gallons of off-road diesel fuel were released to an erosion control pond. Remtech was engaged to remediate the problem.
Two filtration dams were installed downgradient from the pond in the receiving stream. A river boom was placed immediately in front of the pond outfall structure.
Stormsewers were flushed with water to move product to the detention pond. Remtech mobilized its all-terrain vacuum tankers and recovered an estimated 3,500 gallons of fuel from the pond.
90-tons of fuel saturated sediment near the pond’s effluent structure were excavated and transported to a soil recycling facility.
Approval was received by an EPA Onscene Coordinator to treat an estimated 500,000 gallons of stormwater and 500 tons of sediment insitu with Remtech’s HC-2000 native bioremediation accelerator to break down residual petroleum hydrocarbons and remove sheens from the pond. No confirmation sampling was required due to regulatory confidence in the effectiveness of HC-2000. This saved the client thousands of dollars compared to removal of remaining stormwater and sediment.
