Active Wood Treating Site

FTS utilized the PADEP Remediation Standards from the Land Recycling Program to Demonstrate “Clean Closure” of a Closed RCRA Surface Impoundment. The Agency granted clean closure after one additional round of sampling. In addition to the elimination of the client’s sampling and monitoring obligations, which approximated $60,000 annually into perpetuity, the Client was relieved of other RCRA post-closure obligations such as financial assurance.

Project Description

The site is an active wood treating plant that was constructed in 1971. Previous attempts by other consulting firms to achieve clean closure of the RCRA regulated surface impoundment were unsuccessful. As a result, the client was required to conduct quarterly groundwater monitoring and associated reporting.
