he results of the soil sampling activities were compared to the Inactive Hazardous Sites Branch (IHSB) Residential Health-Based and Industrial/Commercial Health-Based Preliminary Soil Remediation Goals (PSRGs). Benzene, ethylbenzene, and naphthalene were detected in soil samples from two target areas above the unrestricted-use health based PSRG. Multiple VOCs and SVOCs were detected in the three target remediation areas above the protection of groundwater PSRGs, but below unrestricted use and industrial PSRGs. Arsenic exceeded unrestricted use PSRGs and total chromium exceeded industrial PSRGs in the three zones.
From July 1 to 2, 2019, Mid-Atlantic mobilized to the site to oversee the advancement of three temporary monitoring wells in the remediation target areas and sample/abandon the wells. The three onsite temporary wells were gauged for the presence of free product and no measureable product was found. Groundwater samples were then collected from each well. Groundwater samples were decanted into pre-labeled, laboratory-supplied glassware, placed into an ice-filled cooler and analyzed for VOCs according to EPA Method 8260 and SVOCs according to EPA Method 8270. Several VOCs were detected in groundwater above their respective North Carolina Groundwater Standard (NCGQS) and both the Residential and Non-Residential vapor intrusion screening levels (VISLs). However, free product was not detected in the wells.
