Description of Services:The main site processes are:
  • Soil Bio-remediation: Aerobic bacterial digestion of soil contaminants is conducted under cover in the dedicated building in the north area of the site. Prior to bio-treatment, large chunks of rock and concrete are removed from soil by screening equipment or by hand. Plastic piping is installed forming air manifolds; nutrients may be added to soil and piles may be watered, however natural organisms are used for the biological digestion. Piles remain in place for 6-8 weeks and are tested before removal. If analytical testing is passed, soil is sent to various offsite facilities for uses as soil or fill in construction projects.
  • Soil Physical-Chemical Treatment: Soils to be treated are mixed with water and processed in slurry form. Equipment derived from mining operations is used to separate different grain size soil, and various processes are used to remove contaminants, including pH adjustment, addition of various reagents, and separation of clay soil fraction. Rinseate is treated in the onsite wastewater treatment plant (used for site-generated wastewater only) which also has pH adjustment, precipitation, and filtration. Various separated components (sand, soil, etc.) are stored in stockpiles in the southern portion of the site. Soil is deposited in piles with some remaining moisture which evaporates. Separated clay soil fraction with contaminants is de-watered and sent offsite for landfill disposal.
