Nyack MGP Site


   Request Case Study

Site Location: Nyack, NY
Contamination: Bedrock contaminated with non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) and MGP-related compounds. Primary contaminants of concern (COCs) include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), poly-nuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH). Levels of COCs reached 6 ppm for VOCs and 1,200 ppm for PAHs in dissolved phase and 8,500 ppm for VOCs, 36,000 ppm for PAHs and 900,000 ppm for TPH in NAPL.
Geology: Fractured Bedrock.
Area Treated: ~36,000 cubic yards consisting of a 20 foot interval of an impacted bedrock zone.

The entire project was completed ahead of the schedule and under the budget (the total cost of the treatment program was approx. $300,000). The project was given a "Award of Merit" by New York Construction Magazine in 2007.
