Groundwater Removal and Treatment System
North Carver MA
In the 1970s residential drinking water wells located in the vicinity of the North Carver landfill were found to be contaminated with trichloroethylene and other VOCs. As an interim measure residents were supplied drinking water via a water storage and distribution system. Under contract to the MA DEP Sealand Enviro constructed a 50GPM groundwater pump and treatment system designed to contain the migration of the contaminant plume in the sole source aquifer. The project entailed many challenges including the installation of secondary containment piping below a riverbed and treatment system design modifications.
