In addition to a chlorinated solvent plume from the nearby Naval Air Development Center (NADC), PFAS impacts were confirmed to be present in groundwater on our client’s property at concentrations exceeding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) health advisory level of 70 parts per trillion (ppt). The source of the PFAS were fire-fighting foams that had been used during exercises at the air base for many years and had seeped into the groundwater.
To determine the extent of existing groundwater impacts beneath the Site, Brickhouse Environmental collected groundwater samples from five clustered wells, requiring diffent specialized equipment for different depths of sample collection . The wells were designed and installed to monitor multiple depths within the multi-aquifer system. Monitoring well sampling methods were conducted in alignment with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency methods.
