NY001 – Chemical Oxidation
Former UST Site, Queens, New York
ARS was contracted to perform injection of the Klozur-CR material manufactured by FMC at a hotel parking lot in Queens, NY. The groundwater was contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons leaked from a former UST. The work was completed in two phases. The first phase involved the injection of 3,060 lbs. of the Klozur-CR into sixteen points near the groundwater table approximately 16 ft. bgs. The second phase conducted 6 months later addressed a more shallow depth and entailed the injection of additional 1,980 lbs. of the material through 11 points.
ARS’ compact slurry mixing/injection trailer with a built-in secondary containment was helpful concerning the site, which had very limited work space. It also helped minimize the generation of dust during the Klozur-CR mixing process and eliminated spills and splashes onto the well-kept parking lot and driveway.
