ABSTRACT

Assessment of Ground-Water Contamination from a Leaking Underground Storage Tank at a Defense Supply Center near Richmond, Virginia   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Purpose and Scope: "This report documents the efforts of the U.S. Geological Survey to describe the ground-water contamination at the PX Service Station [post-exchange gasoline station] at the Defense General Supply Center (DGSC), near Richmond, Virginia. The report presents preliminary site, risk, and remediation assessments, which include information on the hydrogeology, ground water, surface water, water use, characteristics and release of the contaminants, and occurrence of subsurface conduits (storm and sanitary sewers) in the vicinity of the study area. The risk assessment identifies possible receptors to the contamination and discusses concentrations of contaminants reported in the ground water. The remediation assessment discusses the need and feasibility of remediation of the contaminated ground water. Plausible alternative technologies to remediate the site are identified."
