BOS 100® Injection Facilitates Time-Sensitive Real Estate Transaction at Canadian Industrial Property

Historic industrial activities resulted in two separate chlorinated volatile organic compound (CVOCs) plumes in the groundwater at the site. An upcoming property transaction (in <6 months) required treatment of the groundwater impacts to meet stringent Ministry standards.

Location: Industrial property in Greater Toronto Area
Contaminant: Chlorinated ethenes and ethanes
Concentration: Dissolved phase groundwater impacts (up to 1,000 μg/L)
Lithology: 10ft thick layer of saturated silty sands above limestone bedrock

Trap and Treat® BOS 100® was selected due to the short time frame (<6 months) and stringent Ministry standards.
Acquired all relevant permits to complete the in-situ remediation program.
Injected 5,400 lbs of BOS 100® into a grid of 135 temporary points over 14 days on site.
Field schedule spread out the injection over 2 months to allow for consultant interim sampling.
Adjusted injection program based on pilot test results and interim sampling results.
