PROJECT: ULTRAMAR REFINERY
CLIENT: ENVIRONMENTAL RESOLUTIONS, INC.
LOCATION: LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA
Soil excavation was conducted in conjunction with construction of a Clean Fuels Project (CFP). CFP is a State and Federal mandated program to produce reformulated gasoline at the refinery.
Aerial photographs of the excavation site indicated a long history of use as a commercial- industrial facility, and the site of oil exploration and production.
The lead-impacted soil was encountered in the upper six inches of soil at the site. The lead-impacted soil was excavated, sampled, and stockpiled on-site.
Soil-Bond was contracted to develop a remedial treatment operation to treat over 8,000 tons of impacted soil. Via a treatability study, Soli-Bond, Inc. developed a reagent recipe formulation and directed the chemical stabilization. This was accomplished by Soil-Bond, Inc.’s maintained and operated Transportable Treatment Unit.
All processed soil was utilized as backfill material at the site under the guidelines established by the California Regional Water Control Board.
All relevant regulatory agencies, Including the California Regional Water Control Board, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the State Department of Toxic Substance Control and all local regulatory agencies, were involved in the project from the outset and were satisfied with its outcome. Site conditions were in compliance with all relevant regulatory requirements.
