Damon:
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,
Louise

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.

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

Thank you,

Damon Taylor

Mr. Spears,

Attached are two figures of the Sellers Auto/Artist Studios site.   Figure S-4 shows the locations of all the new proposed wells, and Figure S-3 shows the approximate radius of influence for the new wells.  The wells are being added to expedite the remediation process for the residual contamination at the Southeast corner of the building.

Thanks,

Damon,

Without a figure, it’s impossible to know which additional well location you are talking about in item 1b.

I assume it is a supplemental well to handle the point source plume that remains beneath the building corner.

Since this point source seems to be one of the biggest remaining issues with the cleanup effort, the neighbors would be interested in learning how the contractor proposes to resolve this and a figure would be very helpful to understanding this.

Please send us a figure depicting the location of this additional well if one is available in PDF, JPG or TIFF format.

Thanks again for the transparency of your process and for keeping us informed on the details of this project.

Hello Robert,

I just wanted to let you know you can expect the RAP Approval is forthcoming. 489201547 – Sellers Auto Artist Studio RAPM R2C – 041510. The PE sealed letter will make it official when David gets back in a couple of weeks, but this is the final version of the letter so we don’t have to wait for that to get started on the Construction Drawings.

Please send a VCO to add construction drawings to our open O&M work order and choose an ambitious, but realistic due date for submittal of the drawings. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give me a call. Thanks.

Damon

Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 (Thirty-seventh update)‏

Ms. Mills,
I would like to take this opportunity to give you our thirty-seventh monthly update on the project.

General Status:
The general status is pretty much the same this month as it was last month. The system is still running with a selected set of treatment points. I now have two reports to review before Argus can submit the Remedial Action Plan. I intend to rush these reviews and am going to work closely with David Jones, P.E. to expedite the review as well. I’m unsure if we’ll have our review letter to Argus in time for the January e-mail update, but if it is beyond that, it won’t be much beyond it. There is still no need to cease operation of the system while this occurs because contaminant mass continues to be removed from the subsurface.

The cleanup goal is a four-year active phase remediation term plus an additional year of post active monitoring. We are striving to finish early and not have the system run for the full four years. I believe the use of air sparging/soil vapor extraction in front of the former Sellers Auto will allow that to happen. The tentative date that we would expect to be finished with active remediation is January or February 2011, and completing post active remediation monitoring shortly after February 2012. Again, we will continue to strive to beat these deadlines.

System Runtime:
The system runtime during this quarter was less than the required 80% again with the major cause of downtime attributed to the system being shut down due to the significant rains during this period. This report (covering May 28th through August 22nd) is very similar to the last one. Argus states that beginning in April 2009, rainfalls have been very high. A chart in the report illustrates how much more rain than average has been seen in 2009. The graph seems to show it tapering off beginning in August, though still about 2 inches more rainfall than average. We can expect better efficiency from the infiltration gallery now though as we are into the dryer season.

Report Status
The Year 3, Quarter 2 Operation & Maintenance Report received October 28th and the pilot test report received on November 2nd are being reviewed now. The next report I will receive from Argus is the Year 3, Quarter 3 Operation & Maintenance Report, which is due on December 31, 2009, but we expect Argus will be able to submit this one earlier.

The Remedial Action Plan Modification is due December 30, 2009.

Milestone Update:
The most recent groundwater sampling data is from August 28, 2009, which was discussed in October update. Argus recently performed groundwater sampling but the data isn’t available yet. I will share that data with you when it is available.

I will send the next update on January 4, 2010. 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 Twentieth monthly update on the project.

Report Status:

There are currently no reports in house for the County to review, and Argus Consulting that the report due on July 1st will be submitted by Monday or Tuesday of next week. I had expected it would be a little early.

From conversations with Mr. Horton, and from data he submitted via E-Mail in June, we are still very close to turning off the oxidizer. However, we are not quite there and it will have to remain running a little longer. The latest air sampling data (in June) showed that the hydrocarbon concentrations were still a little too high for us to allow it to be turned off and discharged to atmosphere. Argus will sample the air stream again in about a week though and if we see that the levels have dropped to below the allowable threshold, the oxidizer can soon be turned off. In my last e-mail I estimated a mid-June turn off date, but I believe it will be late July to early August now. Incidentally, I received a call yesterday from a consultant that has asked to take the oxidizer to another site (in another county) as soon as we can authorize it to be turned off.

General System Status:

As noted above , the system has had some downtime mostly due to storm surges but seems to have had a pretty good run time as far as we can tell so far. Hour meter run times in the next report will allow us to know for sure what the run time had been for that reporting period. The latest storm surge damaged the phone line for the system telemetry but I believe it was repaired pretty quickly and didn’t result in very much downtime.

I don’t have very much of a technical update this time because there hasn’t been any major modifications to the system or a submittal of a report lately. The status summaries for each of the parts of the overall system remain basically the same this time.

Milestone Update:

I think the next milestone data will be available in August 2008. In the meantime, we will review the recommendations in Argus’ reports for system enhancements that may hasten the cleanup of MW-5, the most contaminated monitoring well left.

I look forward to giving you the next update on August 1, 2008 and if possible I will see if I can provide updated milestone data ahead of time. Please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information.
