Project Description

Whatcom Environmental assisted a client with a commercial property investigation in pursuance of a No Further Action (NFA) determination for historical contamination at the site. A UST removal and petroleum contaminated soil removal had occurred at the site in 1998. During the cleanup, a pit water sample was collected which contained petroleum constituent concentrations which exceeded the applicable cleanup levels. Ecology required that a groundwater investigation be conducted at the site to obtain a NFA determination.

One groundwater monitoring well was installed at the location of the former UST pit, and groundwater samples were collected. Groundwater was not found to contain petroleum contamination above the applicable cleanup levels. Based on the data collected, the site received a No Further Action determination from Ecology, and the client could successfully move forward with selling the property.
