Location: Island Park, Idaho
Completion Year: 2017
Scope of Work:
- Test pitting
- Site restoration
- Sampling and analysis
Brice performed a $71K release investigation (RI) for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) at the Air Route Surveillance Radar (ARSR) Equipment Garage located in Island Park, Idaho. The purpose of the RI was to investigate the condition of and potential contamination associated with up to three sumps that were plumbed to potential underground injection control (UIC) wells located in the garage.
Our field data collection, including analytical results for VOCs, SVOCs, and RCRA metals indicated that the potential UIC wells did not impact surrounding soil and groundwater. Brice recommended no further action and provided design criteria for the sumps to be upgraded to an intrinsic oil water separator system. These conclusions and recommendations were accepted by both the FAA and Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ) with no comment.
Upon completion of the defensible RI including video imaging, drilling and test pitting, we restored the site to operational condition. Brice prepared a final report summarizing the field activities and our recommendations.
