Project Experience: Murtha, Cullina, Richter & Pinney

Client: Murtha, Cullina, Richter, & Pinney; Tooker Residence

Location: West Simsbury, Connecticut

Project: Investigation of Fuel Contamination


  Performed an investigation of the source and extent of No. 2 fuel oil contamination and on site supervision for the removal of a leaking 1,000 gallon underground storage tank and excavation of severely contaminated soil. The excavation process was screened using an HNu photoionization meter to determine the amount of total Volatile Organics (VOC) in the soil and to determine the limits of excavation. Confirming samples were taken for analysis of VOC (EPA Method 8010/8020) and Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH). The house on one side limited the excavation, therefore, a trench soil vent system was installed adjacent to the foundation footing to remove elevated levels of VOC along the foundation.

  A Connecticut Department of Health Services approved dual activated carbon filter system was installed on the potable water well due to low levels of TPH contamination. A detailed report of all investigations, analytical findings, remedial action plans, and remediation implementation was prepared for the client and the CTDEP.
