FORMER GASOLINE STATION
St. Albans, West Virginia Area
Residual Petroleum Hydrocarbon Impacts at Former Gas Station – An all-too-familiar issue is residual groundwater petroleum hydrocarbon contamination at former gas stations that have already undergone tank removal, excavation and additional remedial efforts. This former gas station in West Virginia had relatively low level BTEX, MTBE, and TBA impacts in two on-site monitoring wells. The most impacted monitoring well exhibited benzene, MTBE, and TBA grounwater concentrations of 77 ug/L, 72.8 ug/L, and 1,480 ug/L, respectively. Following application of Provect-OX®, which is a self-activating in situ chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation technology, non-detect results were achieved within approximately 1 year.
