Former Wood Treating Facility - Georgia

Value of Project: $40,000

Scope: Chlorinated Hydrocarbon Subsurface Investigation

The facility/site was operated by a wood treatment company for approximately 20 years. A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) was completed for the site; several Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs), as defined by the American Society for Testing of Materials (ASTM) E1527 were identified. A Limited Site Investigation was completed in 2010 and revealed tetrachloroethene (PCE) and other chlorinated hydrocarbon by-products had impacted to the soil and groundwater beneath the site.

Maxis completed a Subsurface Investigation in 2011, in an attempt to determine the source of contamination and delineate the dissolved-phase, chlorinated hydrocarbon plume. Twenty soil borings and ten monitoring wells were installed during assessment activities. Maxis identified the potential source underneath the concrete slab of an existing building and determined the dissolved-phase plume had migrated off-site. The data gathered from this investigation will be used in the preparation of a Compliance Status Report.

Maxis coordinate site activities with the Georgia Hazardous Site Response Program, multiple Potential Responsible Parties (PRPs) and their legal representation. Maxis adjusted the approved scope of work in the field based on real-time data, which ultimately saved the PRPs time and money. Additionally, Maxis was the lowest, qualified bidder during the competitive bidding process.
