Peizometer & Monitoring Well Installations

EPS was contracted by a nationwide consulting firm to conduct a groundwater and soil investigation in conjunction with monitoring/remedial well installation at a site in Kansas City. The site was adjacent to a large grain elevator, where only a track unit probe could be utilized. Groundwater and soil samples were collected and analyzed on site. It was discovered that high levels of chlorinated solvents were found within the soil and groundwater. Several 2" monitoring wells were installed within the contaminated area and converted to remedial wells utilizing EPS's large track unit. EPS was contracted by a nationwide consultant firm to install 1 1/4" piezometers at a site in south-central Kansas. The area of interest was within a pasture where an underground pipeline had leaked brine into the groundwater. Several groundwater samples were collected and analyzed on site to determine the extent of the brine contamination. Ten piezometers were installed throughout the subject property to determine groundwater flow. The piezometers were later used to aide in the design of a remedial system (groundwater was pumped from horizontal wells and the drawdown of groundwater was measured periodically within the piezometers). EPS was contracted by a large petroleum company to install piezometers and monitoring wells at a petroleum refinery in Borger, Texas. The piezometers and monitoring wells were installed adjacent to a 160,000 gallon above-ground diesel tank and its associated piping. It was discovered that the tank had leaked product into the groundwater in the past, and the monitoring wells were installed to determine groundwater flow and contaminant migration. EPS was contracted by a nationwide firm to install 1/2" and 3/4" PVC piezometers at a railroad yard in Kansas City. The wells were used to determine groundwater flow and the thickness of phase-separated hydrocarbons upon the groundwater. EPS was contracted by an Oklahoma consultant firm to install 1" piezometers at a pipeline facility near Hugo, Oklahoma. The wells were utilized to determine groundwater flow as well as the presence of any hydrocarbon contamination that may exist along the pipeline. EPS was contracted through a consultant firm by the city's of Salina and Wichita, Kansas to install 3/4" and 1" piezometers within the boundaries of their downtown groundwater contaminant plumes. The wells were utilized to monitor the groundwater conditions as well as to determine the groundwater flow direction. EPS was contracted by a nationwide consultant firm to install 3/4" monitoring wells at a site in Enid, Oklahoma. The mini-wells were installed to accurately depict groundwater flow as well as to monitor the groundwater hydrocarbon plume that was discovered during a previous investigation. Once the plume was successfully delineated, EPS installed the wells in areas beyond the plume's boundaries. EPS was contracted by a nationwide consultant firm to install several 1" monitoring wells at a former refinery in Scotts Bluff, Nebraska. The mini-wells were utilized during the remedial design process to determine actual aquifer parameters. EPS was contracted by a nationwide consultant firm in conjunction with the Corps of Engineers to install 1" mini-wells at several former Air Force Bases throughout Kansas and Nebraska. The wells were utilized to determine groundwater quality, groundwater flow direction and to monitor the plume migration. EPS was contacted by a pipeline station to install 1" mini-wells at the pipeline's booster stations throughout the midwestern United States. The mini-wells were installed around the station perimeters to monitor the groundwater conditions. EPS was contracted by a midwestern consultant firm to install 1" mini-wells at several grain elevator sites throughout the midwest. The wells were utilized to determine groundwater quality, groundwater flow direction and to monitor the plumes migration patterns.
