Phase III Environmental Remediation
Whether environmental remediation is performed to maximize the value of
commercial real estate, or to meet minimum regulatory requirements, BEI
the skills to remediate soil and groundwater to the necessary cleanup
Free Product Recovery
The presence of free product is usually detected during the removal of
underground storage tank or during the associated site assessment. Free
product removal is required by law.
BEI employs multiple methods of
product recovery, including the use of vacuum and skimmer pumps and
surfactants. The chosen method often depends on site-specific
BEI has designed, installed and operated several types of groundwater
remediation systems from groundwater pump and treat systems to shallow
air strippers. It is important to quickly establish a cone of
the water table to hydraulically control the spread of groundwater
A dual-phase extraction system not only remediates
contaminated groundwater but, when properly designed, also remediates
contaminated soil. The driving force behind a successful dual-phase
extraction system is a high powered vacuum pump.
In addition to soil vapor extraction (SVE) systems, BEI has used
conventional methods for the remediation of soil, excavation & disposal.
northern Illinois, based on the tight clay soils, excavation & disposal
the fastest and most efficient way of meeting soil remediation
During the excavation & disposal of contaminated soil, it is necessarily important to closely document the transportation and disposal of
contaminated soil in accordance with the Resource Conservation and
For deep excavations, earth retention systems (sheetpiling)
required to prevent the collapse of adjacent soils.
