Thank you for requesting: PetroFix Chosen As Most Cost-Effective Approach
At the former Buxton Naval Facility, between February 2009 and July 2011, four groundwater sampling events were conducted every nine months. At the conclusion of the fourth groundwater monitoring event, hydrocarbon concentrations above the NCDEQ Groundwater Quality Standards (GWQS) were still detected in samples from several site monitoring wells. Through discussions with NCDEQ, a determination was made to continue the long-term monitoring sampling until the analytical results were below the NCDEQ GWQS for four consecutive sampling events for contaminants of concern.
In October 2018, a Tier I meeting between the responsible party and the NCDEQ was held to determine the current status of this site and possibly optimize the current remediation method. This involved the installation of several new and replacement monitoring wells.
