auburn1Petroleum contamination was found at a gas station in Auburn, Indiana back in the mid-1990’s. The owner hired Creek Run to investigate and remediate the contamination. Investigation revealed the contamination had migrated off-site.

Once site characterization was approved by IDEM, Creek Run was given the challenge to find a remediation solution that would efficiently achieve closure. IDEM approved the installation and operation of an air sparge/soil vapor extraction (AS/SVE) system. The system was installed during November 2004 and commenced operation in January 2005. During system installation, the site also underwent a raze and rebuild.

After system operation, groundwater was monitored for contaminant rebound and confirmatory soil sampling was conducted. Closure was achieved using an Environmental Restrictive Covenant (ERC). A No Further Action (NFA) status was assigned to the incident on September 24, 2010.
