Projects

We work with everyone, from national corporations to small business. We're here to help you with your environmental consulting needs.

Brownfields Redevelopment – Automotive Parts Manufacturing Plant

Easley, SC

The Challenge:

Guide our client through the process of negotiating and fulfilling the terms of a Brownfields Voluntary Cleanup Contract (VCC). The contract was needed to allow the client to safely purchase a manufacturing plant that was previously documented to contain groundwater contaminated with trichloroethene (TCE) chlorinated solvent.

Brownfields Redevelopment – Precious Metals Recovery Facility

Duncan, SC

The Challenge:

Evaluate soil and groundwater conditions underlying a property that is considered a high risk of soil impact by metals based on past land use. Groundwater exists in fractured bedrock.

Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment – National Retailer Expansion

50+ Properties in SC, NC, WV and Ohio

The Challenge:

Perform numerous Phase I Environmental Site Assessments and follow-up Phase II assessments for a high-volume retail developer. The services are to be completed on aggressive time schedules and be able to meet the scrutiny of the client’s lenders and future property investors.

Real Estate Environmental Site Assessment – Convenience Store Chain

Multiple Sites in Upstate in SC

The Challenge:

Provide full service environmental assessment of multiple locations in a short timeframe. The services included Phase I Environmental Site Assessment by ASTM Standard 1527-13, Underground Storage Tank system compliance inspections, soil assessments, and groundwater assessments.

Building Evaluation – Medical Renovations

Greensboro and Winston – Salem, NC

The Challenge:

Complete surveys and sampling of building materials in pre-existing shopping center buildings to determine the presence of asbestos containing building materials and lead-based paint. The information was needed for architects to plan the demolition and renovation of the facilities for proposed medical clinics.

Groundwater Assessment – Gasoline Station/Convenience Store

Liberty, SC

The Challenge:

Determine the horizontal and vertical extent of petroleum-impacted groundwater caused by leakage of gasoline from an underground storage tank system. The contaminant plume underlies 10 off-site residential properties and a day care facility.

Groundwater Remediation – Bulk Fuel Terminal

Spartanburg, SC

The Challenge:

Remediate a bulk fuel terminal that has operated since World War II. Groundwater was discovered to be impacted over an area of 5+ acres, including numerous off-site residential properties. The petroleum contamination existed as free-phase floating gasoline (over 2 acres) and as dissolved compounds in saturated soils and fractured bedrock aquifers.

Groundwater Remediation – Medical Products Manufacturing Plant

Greenwood, SC

The Challenge:

Rapidly remove diesel fuel floating atop the groundwater in an area on the plant which is underlain by a dense network of electrical, natural gas, and cooling water utility lines. Prior to EnviroSouth’s involvement, diesel fuel remediation was being performed for 8+ years by another consulting firm using passive recovery pumps with minimal effect.

Groundwater Remediation – Industrial Dry Cleaning Plant

Asheville, NC

The Challenge:

Design and implement a monitoring and remediation plan that will protect residents and streams in the area of a plume of dry cleaning fluid (chlorinated solvent) contamination. Prior to EnviroSouth’s involvement, a previous consultant proposed a large-scale remediation approach that did not address the immediate concerns related to soil vapor intrusion in stores and residences in the area or the migration of solvent-impacted groundwater into nearby streams.

Groundwater, Soil Vapor, and Indoor Air Assessment – Industrial Dry Cleaning Plants

Kingsport and Knoxville, Tennessee and Greenville, SC

The Challenge:

Evaluate the extent of contamination related to the leakage of dry cleaning solvent (tetrachloroethene) in the groundwater and creek on and near the former plant properties. The impacted groundwater occurs in soil and fractured bedrock aquifers. Because of shallow groundwater and the presence of solvents in soils underlying the plant building, soil vapors and indoor air quality also require evaluation. The previous detection of solvents in an adjacent creek required a detailed assessment of surface water impact.
