This active, contaminated dry cleaner site is found in an urban retail shopping center. Decades of dry cleaning activities at the site have impacted the soil and groundwater with PCE. The owner of the retail center is seeking reimbursement from both current and former dry cleaner operators, and there is litigation pending on payment for cleaning up the source of PCE with the dry cleaner operators. To avoid a protracted cleanup schedule and reduce litigation costs, The Reynolds Group¬†was retained by the land owner to assess and cleanup the site. Moving into the remediation phase involved coordination with a large number of permitting agencies to perform assessments, constructing a remediation system, operating the remediation system (vapor extraction and air sparging), and monitoring discharges. A major law firm is involved in overseeing TRG’s work with an eye towards efficiency and minimizing third party liability. TRG is working closely with legal counsel as they seek input into the sources of PCE and cost basis of remediation.
