Complete Soil and Ground Water Remediation in Orange County, NY
Clean up your property by choosing Tank Masters Environmental Inc. for environmental remediation. We perform effective soil and groundwater remediation in Orange County, NY, and beyond at an excellent rate. Residential cleanups involving only soil are approximately $9,000. They take about two weeks due to the waiting period for lab analysis of your soil samples.
If a tank fails inspection, the property must be reported to the state and issued a spill number. Once a spill number is given, an investigation, remediation, and mandate are required to lift the charges. Contact our team to learn more about our remediation services or request environmental consulting. Our remediation process is as follows:
First, we remove the tank and all contaminated soil, placing stockpiles on top of heavy plastic. With the help of a unique tool called a P.I.D. Meter, we only remove soil above acceptable levels of T.P.H.C. (Total Petroleum Hydro Carbons).
Once all the contaminated soil is out, we take soil samples from the tank's base and the sidewalls. These are called post-excavation samples. They demonstrate that the soil previously contaminated has been removed, and the remaining soil is free of any hydrocarbons. We then bring in certifiably clean soil and backfill voids. The new soil must be certified to prove to the state that we are only bringing in clean fill and that it is the agreed-upon amount.
Next, we take a sample from the contaminated stockpile, called a waste classification. The waste classification is analyzed, and results are sent to a facility that accepts contaminated soil. We then proceed to cover the contaminated stockpile with plastic.
Excavation and waste classification typically takes 7 to 14 days. Upon permission from the disposal facility, we load up the contaminated soil and bring it to be burned, removing hazardous chemicals from the soil.
The final step for soil and groundwater remediation is cleaning up your site. We then take all project documentation and bind it together with a memorandum of agreement to be submitted to the state as a closure report. The documentation includes clean fill receipts, soil, sludge manifests, scrap disposal documentation, pictures taken during the project, analytic results of soil samples, and written diaries of the work performed. Following this closure report's review, a No Further Action letter is issued from the state to lift the spill number. You can check the status of your spill here by visiting the DEC website
