There are many situations that require temporary, groundwater remediation equipment during a soil or groundwater clean up project. When excavating to remove heavily contaminated soil, contaminated groundwater, or other source material, the excavation area may need construction dewatering,and the resulting contaminated water needs to be treated using an on-site groundwater remediation treatment system. In addition, temporary water treatment systems may be needed on some remediation sites for short periods of time, for pilot studies, or short-term pull back of a contaminant plume. In these cases, renting the required treatment equipment used to treat theses remediation sites often makes the best financial sense. Carbonair has over 25 years experience providing groundwater remediation equipment for rent in these applications, including our diesel powered STAT Low Profile Air Stripper Trailers, Vapor Phase Carbon Vessel, and our Liquid Phase Carbon Vessel.
Please call us or email Carbonair to get a design and estimate for an On-site groundwater remediation treatment system for your next job that requires water remediation equipment.
Carbonair was hired by a natural gas utility company to provide on-site groundwater treatment of dewatering water in support of the remediation of a Manufactured Gas Plant. As part of the remediation treatment remedy, contractors had to excavate and remove large quantities of soil at the source of the contamination. The soil and water in this area were heavily contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) otherwise known as VOCs, which were present in dissolved form and as free product. The excavated area had to be dewatered at a rate of 500 gpm during excavation due to the high water table.
Carbonair designed and supplied a rental groundwater treatment system, consisting of granular activated carbon (GAC) vessels and our STATs, to meet discharge requirements, allow uninterrupted operation and have sufficient capacity to last throughout the excavation period — without media in the carbon vessel needing to be replaced.
Carbonair Field Technicians installed the carbon vessel system, performed water treatment system startup and trained customer staff in how to operate the groundwater treatment equipment. In addition, Carbonair provided 24-hour emergency on-call service.
The groundwater remediation treatment system operated as designed on a 24-hour basis for the life of the project without any down time or media replacement required. As a result, the contractors were able to proceed with, and complete, the excavation of the contaminated soil without any delays —saving money and avoiding any costly permit violations.
Carbonair field technicians disassembled and removed the groundwater treatment equipment and arranged for the disposal of the spent filter media, completing the “cradle to grave” solution to our customer’s temporary water treatment needs for this project.
Carbonair is the leader in providing rental groundwater treatment equipment and water remediation treatment systems for support of soil and groundwater remediation projects. Contact us today for a quote on your next remediation project!
