Investigation and Remediation
The facility closed in the early 1990s when the company was sold. The liability of this site remained with the owner, who worked with several consultants to investigate the property to determine the extent of a spill that had occurred in the 1970s at the site. Fast forward some years: The original owner passed away and left the property in an estate to be managed. Cash flow for the estate was limited to investments that were with the estate. His wishes were to pay for cleanup. The site contained dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) concentration levels of chlorinated solvents in the soil and groundwater.
