Remedial Investigation of Diesel Release from Underground Fuel Line

Advantage Engineers provided both environmental and geotechnical engineering services for upgrades to an existing municipal wastewater treatment facility (WWTP) located in Monroe Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania.

During recent renovations inside of a former generator building, site crews identified a release of diesel fuel from underground fuel lines. As a result, Advantage conducted a Remedial Investigation and Remedial Activities at the site in accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) Act 2 requirements. Advantage coordinated the removal of impacted soil adjacent to the underground fuel lines as a feasible remediation method due to the structural constraints of the building’s foundation. Additionally, Advantage completed a subsurface investigation along the exterior of the building in order to confirm the building’s footprint confined the release.  

Advantage prepared a Remedial Investigation and Final Report to summarize the completed investigation and demonstrate the site-specific standards for the diesel fuel contaminants of concern located in the soil. The Advantage team performed all work in accordance with PA DEP Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (Act 2). Advantage worked closely with the municipal authority and PA DEP staff to ensure a timely review and approval process resulting in our client achieving a release of liability for the project site.
