Remediation of soil and groundwater can now be accomplished with little disruption to a contaminated site. This type of “in-situ” remediation is commonly done and there is no removal of the soil or groundwater. ECG utilizes in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) to reduce the concentrations of targeted environmental contaminants to acceptable levels.
ISCO is an advanced oxidation technology where remediation is accomplished by injecting or otherwise introducing strong chemical oxidizers directly into the contaminated medium (soil or groundwater) to destroy chemical contaminants in place.
In general, soil testing is performed approximately one month following the injection in order to determine the effectiveness of the application. Pending the analytical results of the soil samples, additional injections of the chemical oxidizers may be required. When confirmation samples contain acceptable contaminant concentrations, injection activities cease.
“It’s great working with ECG. They tackle the environmental problem quickly, so we can get back to work on the main project.”
