The IOP project is located in the Dallas area adjacent to a property that experienced a release from two 2,000 gallon underground storage tanks (USTs) in the 1980’s. Environmental investigations conducted at the Site and adjacent property identified volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in groundwater and light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL) on the Site. According to the most recent Groundwater Sampling Report, the Site is still slightly impacted with gasoline range chemicals of concern (COCs) including toluene, ethyl benzene and xylenes. LNAPL was also measured in several of the on-Site monitoring wells. Based on the review of the available files, there was no evidence that the Site caused or contributed to the contamination, and therefore was eligible for innocent owner/operator protection. The TCEQ approved the IOP in the second quarter of 2017.
The VCP project was for an Auto Services facility in a Dallas suburb. The Site was previously closed to a commercial/industrial cleanup standard as a Partial Response Action Area (PRAA) within a larger parcel that received closure to a residential land use standard. The site along with the remainder of the property received a final Certificate of Completion. W&M conducted additional response actions in the portion closed for C/I land use in order satisfy residential closure criteria, and submitted the additional information to TCEQ. TCEQ approved the residential closure which allowed our Client to accommodate future residential development across the entire site.
