ENVIRONMENTALLY REGULATED MATERIALS CONSULTING SERVICES / SOIL & GROUNDWATER MONITORING / UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK REMOVAL - PRIVATE CLIENT (MULTI-FAMILY APARTMENTS)

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Citadel was contracted by a private developer to provide Environmentally Regulated Materials Consulting services in conjunction with the re-development of a 255,000 square foot, twenty two-story commercial building. The property was constructed in 1961, and vacant at the time the survey was completed. Citadel surveyed for the presence of asbestos-containing materials/asbestos-containing construction materials, lead-containing paints, miscellaneous hazardous materials, and universal wastes.

Citadel was also responsible for preparing all contractor specifications for remediation activities. Over a two-year period, Citadel provided all related project surveillance and air monitoring services in conjunction with the removal of Environmentally Regulated Materials as identified in the initial survey.

In addition, Citadel was contracted to provide Soil and Groundwater monitoring to determine whether the reported Underground Storage Tank (UST) and hydraulic lift had impacted the subsurface soil beneath the Site. It was determined that in fact the UST had impacted subsurface soil, and Citadel was contracted to remove the UST, which was located in the lowest subterranean level of the parking structure.

The UST removal was based upon the “UST Tank Abandon by Removal” permit issued by the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD). In accordance with South Coast Air Quality Management District Rule (SCAQMD) 1166, a photo ionization detector (PID) was utilized to monitor emissions during soil removal, for preparation of tank removal. Citadel contracted with Adams Services, Inc., to clean the UST, in which 300 gallons of liquid waste were transported to a licensed disposal facility. A Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) confirmed the tank was non-hazardous, and removal ensued. Following removal and transport of the UST off site, Citadel collected soil samples which were analyzed for the presence of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), and Benzene/Toluene/Ethyl benzene/Xylenes (BTEX) and fuel oxygenates. No constituents of any concern were found present in any of the collected samples.
