Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 (special update – update #57)‏

Damon:
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!

Subject: Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 (special update – update #57)

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,

Damon Taylor

As always, thank you very much for giving our neighborhood the monthly heads-up on cleanup progress at this site.
The number of reports tells the tale of your diligence in keeping us well-informed since the project started over 4 years ago.
We look forward to the annual summary of operations at the site in the next report.
Best regards,

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.

Thank you,

Subject: Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 (Forty eighth update)

November 1, 2010

 

Ms. Mills,

 

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

 

General Status:

The system has been running and will continue to run while the modifications are performed.  However, the system is being turned off now pending the portion of the upgrade which will require it to be off.  I expect it will remain off for at least a few weeks.

 

System Runtime & Performance:

 

There hasn’t been any significant down time in a while except for one at the beginning of the past week for a high water alarm.

 

Report Status

 

The next report is the Year Four Quarter Two which is due on November 22, 2010.   In the past update I stated that I thought this report would span a period of time before and after the improvements are made.  I don’t believe that will be the case, because the construction has not yet begun.

 

Milestone Update:

There is no new milestone data update this month since the last one that included the data collected in July.   The next set of groundwater sampling data will be available in a few weeks.  They just performed it over this past weekend.  I will provide the new data as soon as I get it from the consultant.

I will have further news on the construction status in the next update on December 1st .  Please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions.

 

Thank you,

E-PASS Shredding and Recycling Event‏

In recognition of Pollution Prevention Week, E-PASS, along with several community partners, is sponsoring another shredding and electronics recycling event Saturday, September 18th from 8 am to 12 pm. It will be at the Amway Arena (West Livingston Street, Orlando, FL 32801), in the parking lot area in front of the Amway Arena near the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre.

This is a free event, open to everyone. Residents can bring their documents and watch as they are shredded. In an effort to reduce wait times, please limit your shredding to less than 10 boxes.

Kicking off the 20th Anniversary of Pollution Prevention Week, Florida Department of Environmental Protection staff will be on hand to discuss their Easy As One campaign and will collect retail plastic bags to recycle and used cell phones (working and non-working) along with stray chargers to donate to a local charity.

Participants who bring in 20 or more retail plastic bags for recycling will receive a reusable shopping bag. Those who bring a cell phone or paper for shredding will receive a day pass to a Florida State Park by visiting the Easy As One booth, while supplies last. For more information on Easy As One visit http://www.dep.state.fl.us/EasyAsOne.

In addition, participants can bring working and non-working electronics (excluding TVs) for recycling. See below for accepted items. E-PASS and the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority are not responsible for any items dropped off during this event.

The following electronics will be accepted, working or not working: desktop, tower, laptop computers; CRT, LCD, plasma monitors/displays; printers/plotters; fax machines; telephone systems, switches; PDAs, radios; stereos; VHS/DVDs; video games; projectors, cameras; any kind of storage media. At this time, we CANNOT accept TVs.

For computers and other items like cell phones and PDAs, a private company will process the item for data destruction (three pass electronic erasure and Department of Defense level sanitization of hard drives). All identifying marks, stickers and labels are removed. If media cannot be securely destroyed electronically, physical destruction is carried out at their facility.

For more information, please call 407-690-5000.
