Project:    SAF Grant # 454767-B

Site Assessment Subsurface Investigation

DESCRIPTION:

The City of Ecorse selected to conduct environmental activities that might allow the return of this potentially valuable property back to productive use. Wanted to transfer the property to a food store chain for construction of a shopping center.  Prior to this subsurface investigation, performed a Phase 1 that identified the existence of  recognizable environmental conditions (RECs) on portions of the subject property where two former dry cleaners and a laundromat operated on the site.  The release of tetrachloroethylene at dry cleaner sites is a common occurrence in Michigan.  The objective of this project was to evaluate the nature of soil and groundwater contamination, if present, and recommend remedial procedures if found.   Developed a HASP specific for this project.  Prior to engaging in field activities, contacted MISS DIG to demarcate utilities.  Prepared a soil testing grid for the areas where the dry cleaner facilities formerly existed.  Using a Geoprobe, advanced shallow soil borings and collected soil samples.  Properly preserved the samples, maintained them at <40C, and submitted them, along with a trip blank,  under chain of custody to a qualified independent laboratory for analysis of chlorinated solvents  Assessed the analytical data and prepared a written report that included: a description of all field activities, analytical methodologies and results, soil boring logs, and a scaled map with sampling locations, identifying areas impacted by contamination, and a site layout drawing to provide spatial relationships.
