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.

November 1, 2011

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our sixtieth monthly update on the project.   

We got the final report today that details the operation and maintenance of the system for the last period of operation.  This report also provides Argus recommendation for Post Active Remediation Monitoring (PARM), which we intend to approve. In the next few weeks, we will send our review letter to Argus and approve a quarterly PARM plan for them to get started on monitoring.   All of the milestone wells are below target levels.  Monitoring well DW-11 had on constituent above target levels when it was last sampled on September 27, 2011, which was Benzene at 9.7 µg/L.   This well will be part of the quarterly monitoring and is expected to attenuate.  One idea we are considering is to overpurge this well or to replace this well with a new well adjacent to it. 

I propose that I provide updates on a quarterly basis from now on the contractor will only be coming to sample the wells on a quarterly basis.  Please let me know if you would prefer more frequent updates and I will be happy to give them.  Otherwise, below are the tentative dates for the next four updates:

Ø       February 1, 2012 

Ø       May 1, 2012

Ø       August 1, 2012

Ø       November 1, 2012

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

Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 update #59A)‏

Good afternoon,

As a followup to the update at the beginning of October, I have good news:  all of the milestone wells that were sampled on September 27th were below cleanup target wells again this time.  Therefore, the system will remain off and prepared for long term storage. 

However, one well did show a slight concentration of Benzene though.  Monitoring well DW-11 which has historically had low concentrations of Benzene had 9.6 µg/L of it this time. This will be monitored and will not require the system to be turned back on since this well is a 55 ft deep well and the treatment wells are 20 ft deep.  Tentatively, we plan on over-purging that well or a well nearby address this.  

Please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions.  Have a great weekend.

It doesn’t seem possible it has already been 57 months since project start, but here we are today and the project is almost complete.
If the wells cited do not rebound, it sounds like project will be completed by end of this calendar year.
Thank you for keeping us well-posted on the results. This is awesome news!

July 27, 2011

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our fifty-seventh monthly update on the project.     I will follow up with a more thorough update later, but this one is just a brief one to let you know that we have finally reached cleanup target levels for every monitoring well sampled at the end of June, 2011.

Report Status

The Year Four Quarter Four report is due on August 12, 2011 (this date was extended from a July due date).  This one will include a milestone evaluation and a professional recommendation for the next course of action.   We are funded to run the system an additional three months to make sure that there is not a rebound in concentrations.  I think we may be able to turn the system off and enter Post Active Monitoring by sometime in September 2011.  I’ll follow up in the August update with more detail on this.

Milestone Update:

All of the wells sampled in the comprehensive annual sampling event at the end of June:  AW-2, AW-5A, AW-6R, AW-10, AW-15, AW-18, AW-22, AW-24, AW-26, AW-27, AW-28, AW-30, DW-11, MW-5 and MW-9 are below Groundwater Cleanup Target Levels.   Attached is a PDF table of the lab results that I received today.

From the above wells I note that AW-28, DW-11 and MW-9 each had concentrations above cleanup target levels at the end of March and this is the first quarter that these three wells are clean.    In the next sampling event we’ll need to see that these remain below cleanup levels for a second quarter.  We’ll also need to see that AW-10 and MW-5 do not rebound.   However, the late June sampling event is the second consecutive clean quarter for these two wells.

I am out of the office July 28th through August 1st, but I will return on Tuesday August 2nd.  I will follow up with an update very soon after August 2nd with more details.  Please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions.

Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 (Update # 56)‏

July 1, 2011

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our fifty-sixth monthly update on the project.

General Status:

There have not been any major changes with the operational strategy or sampling plan for the site in several months.  Yesterday, Argus performed the annual sampling event.  I expect in two weeks, we will have new groundwater data to share.  The next report is the annual one, which is due on July 12, 2011.

A professional recommendation to turn the system off and enter monitoring or to continue to operate the system for another quarterly period will be in this report.

System Runtime & Performance:

We have received no notices of downtime lately.   All air sparging wells are showing high flow rates as designed.  Three of the multiphase treatment well network of 26 (originally 24) are turned off.  In other words, there are only 23 vapor recovery wells being used to capture vapors.   Only the ones in the area of the contamination are being used to recover groundwater.   The target area is still the isolated area around monitoring wells MW-5, AW-10 & AW-28.   Surprisingly, with the heavy rain events we have been getting the infiltration gallery has continued to perform well.

Report Status

As stated above, the Year Four Quarter Four report is due on July 12, 2011.  This one will include a milestone evaluation and a professional recommendation for the next course of action.   I recently created a new work order to run the system for 90 days after this period, just in case it is needed.  However, it is possible this report may have a recommendation to turn the system off.

Milestone Update:

There isn’t a new milestone evaluation for this update.  In the past one, we had all wells having met milestones for the first time.   The site showed the lowest levels of contamination yet at that time – the groundwater sampling event of March 2011.

I will not be able to submit the update on August 1st because I will be out of town, but I will send it on August 2nd 2011.  However, I will likely contact you in the middle of the month with the new data before the monthly report.

I hope you have a great Fourth of July weekend.  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 fifty-fifth monthly update on the project.     I’m sending this update a day early because I will be in training (unavailable by e-mail) on Wednesday June 1st.

General Status:

There have not been any major changes with the operational strategy or sampling plan for the site since the last update.   Nor have there been any periods of down time or reported operational problems.   The last time the groundwater was sampled was in mid March, so the next time we should have data would be sometime after mid June.   Therefore, we should have new groundwater data for you in the next update as long as I am able to get it ahead of the next report, which is due on July 12, 2011.   This report will be a significant one because it’s an annual report, which is to summarize the fourth year of operation.    A professional recommendation to turn the system off and enter monitoring or to continue to operate the system for another quarterly period will be in this report.

System Runtime & Performance:

We have received no notices of downtime lately.   All air sparging wells are showing high flow rates as designed.  Three of the multiphase treatment well network of 26 (originally 24) are turned off.  In other words, there are only 23 vapor recovery wells being used to capture vapors.   Only the ones in the area of the contamination are being used to recover groundwater.   The target area is still the isolated area around monitoring wells MW-5, AW-10 & AW-28.   In the last update, I mentioned that the spare soil vapor extraction blowers still wasn’t fixed, but this was fixed since the last update.  Now, the other soil vapor extraction blower needs some maintenance.  I am not sure if the other one is operable, but if it isn’t, we again have two soil vapor extraction blowers, of which only one is operable.   This hasn’t affected run time or efficiency though.  The goal is to rotate between the two of them periodically to ensure reliability.

Even with the occasional heavy rains, the infiltration gallery has continued to perform well.

Report Status

As stated above, the Year Four Quarter Four report is due on July 12, 2011.  This one will include a milestone evaluation and a professional recommendation for the next course of action.   I recently created a new work order to run the system for 90 days after this period, just in case it is needed.  However, it is possible this report may have a recommendation to turn the system off.

Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 (Update # 54)‏

May 2, 2011

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our fifty-fourth monthly update on the project.    

General Status:

I am currently reviewing the year four quarter three report and it contains the data and updated milestones (see below for milestone summary).  The run time has been good and there hasn’t been any down time notices lately.  An expanded evaluation of the milestone data from last update is included here.  

System Runtime & Performance:

The run time has been pretty good.   All of the air sparging wells is showing good flow to the subsurface as designed.  Three of the multiphase treatment well network of 26 (originally 24) are turned off.  In other words there are only 23 vapor recovery wells being used to capture vapors.   Only the ones in the area of the contamination are being used to recover groundwater.   The target area is still the isolated area around monitoring wells MW-5, AW-10 & AW-28.  The soil vapor extraction blowers (the spare) problem I reported on last month still hasn’t been fixed.  We have two soil vapor extraction blowers, of which only one is operable.   This hasn’t affected run time or efficiency though since of them is a spare and the intent is to rotate periodically between them.    There still hasn’t been any shutdowns or problems caused by the infiltration gallery getting overwhelmed from heavy rain events.

Report Status

I am currently reviewing the Year Four Quarter Three report (received 04/12/11).   The next report is the Year Four Quarter Four (the annual report) and is due on July 12, 2011.  A milestone evaluation from this report is summarized below.

 Milestone Update:

For the first time, all wells have met milestones.  The site has the lowest amount of contamination to date, with only minor concentrations in two wells. 

·       AW-10 – This well is completely below groundwater target levels for the first time. 

            Benzene –not detected March 17, 2011 (8.1 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Ethyl benzene not detected March 17, 2011 (145 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Total Xylenes not detected March 17, 2011 (147 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Naphthalene not detected March 17, 2011 (23.4 ug/L November 4, 2010)

·       AW-28 This well is almost below groundwater target levels for the first time.  The only detected contaminants above target level are Benzene and Total Xylenes, each of which are only one part per billion above the state prescribed groundwater cleanup level:

Benzene –1.2 ug/L March 17, 2011 (91.3 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Ethyl benzene (11.0 ug/L) detected but below cleanup levels March 17, 2011,(565 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Total Xylenes 21.1 ug/L March 17, 2011 (351.9 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Naphthalene (1.2 ug/L) detected but below cleanup levels March 17, 2011, (48.4 ug/L November 4, 2010)

·       MW-5 – This well is also completely below and shows most dramatic reduction of all the wells.

           Benzene –not detected March 17, 2011 (89.8 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Ethyl benzene not detected March 17, 2011 (525 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Total Xylenes not detected March 17, 2011 (577 ug/L November 4, 2010)

            Naphthalene not detected March 17, 2011 (82.8 ug/L November 4, 2010)

Other wells that were sampled on March 17, 2011 include AW-26, AW-27, and DW-11.  The only detected contaminant in any of these three wells is Benzene was found in DW-11 at a concentration of 15.9 ug/L.  This well has fluctuated from below cleanup levels to 25.1 ug/L over the course of the cleanup.   This well and several others will be sampled in the upcoming comprehensive annual sampling event.  This data will be available sometime around early July.

I suspect that once the results come back for the early summer sampling event (sometime in June) we may approve a recommendation to turn the system off for good. 

I look forward to sending the next update on June 1, 2011.  Please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions.
