Characterization/Remediation former Automotive Components Facility

MD&E is investigating the magnitude and distribution of, and developing remedial strategies for, soil and groundwater impacted with chlorinated solvents at a former automobile parts fabrication facility in Southfield, Michigan. These impacts are associated with a release from a leaking underground storage tank system (LUST). Work entails: the acquisition and analyses of environmental samples; reduction and interpretation of analytical data for delineation of the impacted media; reporting consistent with the rules associated with Part 213 of Michigan PA 451, the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act; the design and implementation of management and engineering alternatives for treatment of soil and groundwater; and documentation of site closure. Remedial processes currently under consideration include: source abatement/control by in-situ physicochemical or biological treatment, and groundwater plume management through Monitored Natural Attenuation.
