In 1989, a fire at the facility print shop solvent still area resulted in releasing chlorinated solvents to the soil and groundwater. Site investigation revealed a dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) source located beneath the former print shop area, as well as in a low-lying area located down slope from the site due to the overland migration of an estimated 300,000 gallons of VOC-containing fire suppression water. Chlorinated VOCs were detected in the site and downgradient bedrock water supply wells at concentrations exceeding drinking water standards. Aries’ was retained by PAK 2000 and their counsel to study the contaminant release cause, origin, and timing. Our work product was provided to the insurance company as well as counsel for downgradient bedrock water supply well owners.
