After the completion of an initial survey and a thorough soil testing and analysis, heating oil leaks may be discovered causing you to require groundwater treatment or groundwater remediation. When heating oil from an underground or above ground storage tank comes into contact with soil or groundwater; the State of New Jersey requires property owners to take immediate action in prompting the clean up and groundwater remediation process. Storage tanks can rust and leak over time – producing an environmental hazard that can only be solved via groundwater treatment and groundwater remediation. The best course of action to remediate a discharge from an underground tank is to remove the source, which is the contaminated soil before treatment of groundwater begins. Once contaminated soil is removed, groundwater treatment will take care of water contamination.
When groundwater is found to be contaminated above the applicable NJDEP Groundwater Standards, the groundwater must be remediated to bring the groundwater quality within NJDEP Groundwater Criteria. NJDEP impact to groundwater standards are put into place to keep residents of Oakhurst, NJ safe. Groundwater remediation doesn’t just affect a property owner’s groundwater, but the groundwater enjoyed by all in the area.
Meridian Environmental must delineate the extent of groundwater contamination through various testing prior to implementing taking action. Once NJDEP impact to groundwater has been determined, groundwater treatment and groundwater remediation will begin. The NJDEP impact to groundwater testing process ensures that groundwater remediating professionals know just what they’re working with.
The Groundwater clean-up process can be attempted by but not limited to; installing pumps and treatment systems, implementing de-watering methods, perform injections, and/or in-situ. The remediation of groundwater or treatment of groundwater plan used for a particular property will depending on the NJDEP impact to groundwater findings at that property specifically.
When testing for groundwater delineations, we use a Geo-Probe. This is a machine used to drill down and quickly collect soil and groundwater samples. Using a Geo-Probe, remediation of groundwater or treatment of groundwater procedures can get underway more quickly and efficiently. Some of the benefits of using this machine are:
• Quick and Simple site delineations for faster remediation of groundwater. NJDEP groundwater impacts are found quickly.
• Collection of continuous soil samples to determine accurate NJDEP groundwater impacts over time.
• Collection of groundwater samples for NJDEP groundwater impact testing.
• Installation of permanent monitoring wells to keep properties safe.
• Placement of temporary observation wells or piezometers for continued monitoring of contamination.
• Easy soil classification after NJDEP groundwater impact testing.
• Simple bedrock profile gathering through testing.
• Evaluation of groundwater elevation during the testing process.
