Dual-Phase Extraction (DPE) is a remediation technology for soils and groundwater impacted with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This technology works by extracting soil vapor and groundwater from the subsurface at a high vacuum, then treating the vapors and water prior to discharge.
Air sparge is an in situ groundwater remediation technology were air is injected into the groundwater to increase dissolved oxygen. Air sparge is used to remediate impacted groundwater with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), most commonly gasoline range organics.
An emergency cleanup response was executed after 7,000 gallons of lubricant oil were released. The release occurred as a result of railroad tank car colliding with a road tanker. The release affected soils in the vicinity of the incident, and impacted a nearby storm drain.
After a marine terminal was demolished, several site assessments revealed that soil and groundwater at the site were impacted with petroleum hydrocarbons and lead. An interim remedial action plan (IRAP), a Remedial Action Plan (RAP), and a Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP) were prepared and implemented to protect harbor water, and remediate the site.
Our project experience includes environmental engineering services for the aerospace industry which includes remediation of former aerospace sites that pre-date World War II (also called legacy sites), and several CERCLA sites located in Southern California.
Pilot Testing an Advanced Oxidation System at Salton Sea, Salton Sea Authority, Imperial County, California
As part of a feasibility study intended to identify technical options to restore the water quality in a lake, an advanced oxidation system pilot test was performed to demonstrate the technology, and obtain operations data for a system pre-design and cost estimate.
Fixed-Price Guaranteed Remediation Project, Former Aerospace Site Impacted with VOCs, Southern California
A former aerospace manufacturing site was impacted with perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloriethylene (TCE) in soil gas. The operation and maintenance of a soil vapor extraction (SVE) system was outsourced through closure.
Air sparge is an in situ groundwater remediation technology which uses vertical or horizontal wells to transfer a continuous or pulsed flow air into the groundwater. The purpose of air sparge system is to reduce the concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in groundwater through enhanced volatilization, and mass transfer of VOCs and oxygen.

Advanced oxidation systems using hydrogen peroxide (peroxide) and ultraviolet (UV) light are designed to inject hydrogen peroxide in controlled ratios to the water, then mixing the peroxide, and exposing the water and peroxide solution to UV radiation to form hydroxyl radicals (•OH). Peroxide and hydroxyl radicals are strong oxidizing agents capable of oxidizing 1,4-dioxane and several volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The advanced oxidation process is suitable for groundwater remediation with pump-and-treat, water treatment, and industrial wastewater treatment. Treatment with UV/Peroxide may offer technical advantages over ozone based treatment systems.
Project experience with the oil and gas industry includes a wide range of environmental services from due diligence to remediation of retail sites, marine terminals, tank farms, and refineries. Our environmental consulting and engineering services include water resources management; soil and groundwater remediation; water treatment, and long-term environmental management of petroleum hydrocarbons.
