Document Description
The project includes the approval of the Removal Action Work Plan (RAW) for soil and soil vapor containing perchloroethylene (PCE) at the Allen Cleaners/Country Fair Shopping Center (Site). The RAW summarizes historic soil and soil vapor investigations, details the excavation and offsite disposal of approximately 600 cubic yards of soil containing the highest concentrations of PCE, and describes the installation of a soil vapor extraction (SVE) and treatment system to remediate the PCE and other breakdown volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at the Site. The excavation will be backfilled with clean replacement gravel/soil. The SVE will remove VOCs from soil vapors by applying a vacuum to soils through the use of four vertical extraction wells.
