Site Assessment Subsurface Investigation


Based on a Phase 1 ESA, recognizable environmental conditions were believed to exist on the subject property.  Retained to perform a Phase II ESA  to evaluate the nature of soil and  groundwater contamination on the subject property.  Additional investigative and remedial phases were to be recommended if any found on site contamination exceeded MDEQ criteria or appeared to have migrated off site Developed and prepared a Health and Safety Plan (HASP) specific for the subject property.  Prior to engaging in field activities,  contacted MISS DIG to demarcate subsurface appurtenances in the areas of investigation.  Prepared a soil testing grid for the areas of locations where formerly drums, transformers and pads, pits, and soil and waste mounds were located, as well as  in the vicinity of the property sewers and storm drains.  Determined a grid interval and set the grid.  Advanced soil borings with a geoprobe and collected soil and water samples. Properly preserved the samples and submit them under chain of custody to a qualified independent laboratory for analysis.  Decontaminated the sampling equipment used between each sampling event by washing the equipment with a non-phosphate detergent followed by a clean water rinse.  Samples were analyzed for PCBs and the ten (10) Michigan metals, utilizing MDEQ approved methodology, detection limits, and QA/QC per MDEQ-ERD.  Assessed analytical data via RBCA and MDEQ  Criteria and determined extent of contamination.  Upon completion of the field work and laboratory analyses,  prepared a report which  included a description of all field activities, analytical methodologies and results, soil boring logs, and a scaled site map with sampling locations, and identification of the areas of contamination.  Findings, conclusions and an opinion properly provided.
