Project:     Superfund Site Remediation

The site had been used for many years in a variety of manufacturing pursuits. During a potential sale of the site, chlorinated solvents were discovered in soil and groundwater. In response to this discovery, an investigation was conducted and solvent impacts to the groundwater were found to be fairly widespread across the site.

HMC was retained to manage the overall response actions which include the development and implementation of a site remediation system including multiple soil and groundwater technologies.
