BOS 200® Accomplishment in Alabama
Zig Ziglar said, “Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, and the architect of accomplishment.”
The little UST (underground storage tank) site in Decatur, Alabama was not much to look at. An open field where a gas station once dispensed fuel. Under the field, nine tanks marked the passing of time. The site had shallow soil and a high water table, but even this didn’t make this UST site exceptional.
The remediation approach was typical. Excavation, followed by natural attenuation, and after several years benzene rebounded in the monitoring wells. I’ve seen this happen at hundreds of UST sites. Dig, hope, and fail. The only thing missing in this sequence was the use of a mechanical pump.
But then something different happened; the project manager took action. Determined to close the site, she turned to BOS 200®. Injection occurred over a 1600 sq ft treatment area after which the monitoring wells stabilized below the design designated Site Specific Target Levels (SSTLs). Within the year, Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) issued a NFA (no further action) letter.
Learn, act, and accomplish.
