Since 1989 The Reynolds Group has been helping gas station owners assess and remediate the soil and groundwater contamination at their sites, receiving closure (No Further Action) letters from regulators for hundreds of cases. We removed thousands of UST’s in the 1990’s leading to a significant backlog of assessment and remediation cases. In addition, The Reynolds Group stays current on state initiatives that may help our clients receiving funding for your remediation projects.
Phase I or Phase II Assessment and Environmental Remediation Services
TRG provides a complimentary initial review by a principal in the firm, of any gas station situation, question, or technical report.
Cases typically begin with a Phase I or Phase II ESA. Phase I and Phase II site assessments define the extent of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX) contamination. Once BTEX contamination has been defined, the project moves toward the remediation phase.
TRG’s turnkey environmental contracting services include permitting, assessment, pilot testing, remediation, operations and maintenance, groundwater monitoring, and financing.
TRG pushes projects forward from start to “No Further Action.” Our staff is very comfortable interacting with multiple stakeholders to ensure that all parties are satisfied and projects are completed on time and on budget.
We have provided UST assessment and remediation services under the regulatory auspices of the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal EPA), the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), and the California State Water Resources Control Board (through the nine Regional Water Quality Control Boards), as well as a variety of county and city fire departments and environmental health care agencies.
CA Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund
The cost to remediate BTEX contamination varies by site. TRG works to minimize out-of-pocket costs by applying for state reimbursement on behalf of our Clients.
TRG is also familiar with various state funds, such as the Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) Fund. We can assist or direct clients towards seeking reimbursement of their assessment and remediation costs. We stay current on legislative developments that provide opportunities or insights to help our clients address environmental liabilities associated with real properties.
