Quarterly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 update #63)‏

July 31, 2012

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our sixty-third update on the project.   Since the last update, we received the second quarterly Post Active Remediation Monitoring (PARM) groundwater sampling results (report received June 13, 2012).  These results were all below Groundwater Cleanup Target Levels like the prior results were.   We now have two out of the required four PARM results to close the site.   

The next two quarterly PARM reports are due on October 1, 2012 (3rd Qtr) and December 31, 2012 (4th Qtr).   

The next update I will send on November 1, 2012 will include the third quarter results.  I will send the update that includes the fourth quarterly results as soon as I get them, which should be in early to mid December.  

As always, please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions. 

Thank you,

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our sixty-second update on the project.   Since the last update on February 1st, we have completed the first quarterly Post Active Remediation Monitoring (PARM).  The results were all below Groundwater Cleanup Target Levels.  The second round of quarterly sampling will be occurring in about two weeks from now so I will have those results well before the next quarterly update on August 1, 2012.  A new work order will be put into place to do two more quarters of sampling (quarters three and four) as soon as the new FDEP work order templates are available.  Tentatively, I plan to write that work order in late May as I predict the FDEP work order templates may be ready by that time. 

Today, Argus is doing the periodic system maintenance to service the motors during this period that they are not operating.

As always, please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions. 

Thank you,

Quarterly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 update #61)‏

February 1, 2012

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our sixty first update on the project.   

Since the last update on November 1st, we secured funding for the first two quarters of Post Active Remediation Monitoring (PARM).  The first sampling event has not occurred yet, but I expect to get a field notification from Argus of it taking place soon.   The data from the first sampling event will certainly be available by the next update on May 1st.  

Argus is at the site this week doing the long term storage preparation for the equipment.   However, the equipment will not be started back up except for just for a few minutes per month (daytime) to rotate the motors.

 As always, please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions.
