Bulk Storage Terminals
Assessment, Remediation and Related Environmental Services
Major Petroleum Corporation
The site is an active, 60 acre bulk petroleum storage and dispensing terminal located on the banks of the Weymouth-Fore River in eastern Massachusetts. The property was also used for petroleum refining and storage over 100 years ago. The boundaries of the site include several properties no longer owned by this customer, including an electrical generating plan, an auto dealership and other commercial properties. The contaminants of concern at this complex site include a wide range of petroleum products and heavy metals.
Initially, ES&M was retained to assess and remediate one of the off-site properties that was in litigation, and to evaluate and upgrade a non-functioning groundwater treatment system that was experiencing compliance issues. Since that time, ES&M has been providing a wide range of environmental consulting services including operation, maintenance, and upgrade of two groundwater/LNAPL recovery and soil vapor extraction systems; maintenance of an open-ended RAM Plan for soil and groundwater management during routine construction and maintenance activities; comprehensive review and improvement of the facility’s storm water system; and waste management reporting and compliance. We are also managing environmental matters at the off-site properties including operation and maintenance of a SVE/vapor intrusion mitigation system, routine high-vacuum events for LNAPL recovery, and soils management.
