REPRESENTATIVE CLEANUP ENGINEERING PROJECT PROFILES

SUPERFUND TREATABILITY STUDY/REMEDIAL DESIGN/ENGINEERING
Designed complete Superfund Remedial Action Approach for cleanup involving used lube oil, sulfuric acid, and chlorinated soil contamination. Lube oil concentrations in soil averaged 48% in some areas. Project included review of applicable technologies, design/supervision of on-site field and off-site laboratory treatability testing programs, and Remedial Design for three technical alternatives. Resource recovery approach and team building interaction with regulatory agencies, remediation contractors, public, and client broke regulatory logjam when previous cleanup approach proposed by others was rejected by State of Montana. Ongoing remediation contracting and oversight. See profile in pilot/treatability project profiles and project profile immediately below for more information.

SUPERFUND REMEDIAL ACTION - CLEANUP
Subcontracted and provided field supervision/oversight for a $10 million budgeted cleanup involving used lube oil, sulfuric acid, and chlorinated soil contamination in Montana. Designed novel system to recover and treat for reuse 500,000 gallons of waste lube oil, sulfuric acid, 3,000 gallons of chlorinated solvent, and 1,000,000 gallons of water Worked with vendor to modify thermal desorption unit to condense and recover liquid fractions for recycling at lube oil and solvent refinery. Project's scope encompasses all aspects of specifying, procuring and project oversight. Negotiated performance based contract which protected client from cost overruns and liability. 23,000 out of 29,000 tons have been remediated. Final phase to be completed pending approval of revised Work Plan. CCC's mobile laboratory performed treatability, compliance, and production support testing (see pilot/treatability studies for more information) that led to development of successful treatment processes. First of kind project emphasizing pollution prevention/resource recovery at a Superfund Site. See the project profile immediately above for more information.

CONTAMINATED WELL DRINKING WATER SUPPLY TREATMENT SYSTEM
Provided engineering support for the design of a contaminated well water treatment system. The
ground in the vicinity of a drinking water supply was contaminated with methylene chloride and other chemicals. The water was also used in chemical plant processing applications. An existing water conditioning system consisting of sand filters was modified to include activated carbon adsorption and micron sized fine particle filtration. Included a review of designs and specification of filter system.

CONTAMINATED SOILS AND GROUNDWATER REMEDIATION DESIGN
Designed a complete remediation scheme for soils and groundwater contaminated with various chlorinated solvents. The contamination resulted from a leaking underground chemical storage tank. The final cleanup cost is estimated to be in the $1 -2 million range and will extend over a period of 3 - 7 years.
