This is a SHORT, LIGHT and SIMPLE newsletter. Its purpose is to rekindle, in the initiated, terminology they have once learned and enlighten the uninitiated on terms they may have heard but never knew the meaning of.

Environmental Investigations in Dry Cleaning Operations
Site Characterization Work II

This info-letter is the 12th and final entry of our series on drycleaning operations, their impact on the environment and ensuing hurdles they pose in real estate transactions. The previous entry can be viewed here.

A study of site assessments conducted at 150 contaminated drycleaning sites in Florida found that contaminated groundwater had migrated off-property at approximately 57% of the sites.

Off property site access could be problematic. A possible alternative is to obtain access to road right-of-ways from municipal, county and state government agencies.

You can find past issues of "Environmental Enlightenment" at www.amiadini.com Wealth of information about environmental site assessments in the real estate transactions and issues concerning assessment and cleanup of contamination in the subsurface soil and groundwater.

Call me if you have any questions. There are no obligations.
