Reissued November 10, 2017

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.

Migrating Plumes

A study of site assessments conducted at 150 contaminated dry-cleaning sites in Florida found that contaminated groundwater had migrated off-property at approximately 57% of the sites. (Off-property migration is also the case in large percentage of leaking underground petroleum storage tank sites.)

Off-property site access for environmental drilling, sampling and remediation, may at times be problematic, neighboring property owners do not always cooperate. A possible solution is to obtain access to public right-of-ways (roads, alleys, sidewalks) that surround the source area. The “encroachment permits” can be secured from municipal, county and state government agencies.

You can find past issues of our "Environmental Enlightenment" at 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.
