3101 NORTH PULASKI ROAD
Carlson conducted a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment of the subject site which revealed the potential presence of one or more underground storage tanks (USTs) located in the vicinity of the former boiler room. A targeted Phase II investigation was then conducted to determine if the suspect USTs had impacted that portion of the subject site. Samples collected from soil borings in the northern portion of the site determined that various chlorinated solvents had impacted the soil and potentially the groundwater.
Supplemental Phase II investigations were completed to sufficiently characterize the entire site to obtain a No Further Remediation letter through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s Site Remediation Program. Site access restriction associated with the site being an operating school necessitated a creative investigation approach because the site was not accessible to drill rigs large enough to emplace wells to the requisite depth.
Carlson’s remediation strategy utilized the entire existing site footprint as an engineered barrier and incorporated an industrial/commercial land use restriction, an on-site construction worker caution, and reliance on the City of Chicago municipal groundwater ordinance to eliminate potential contaminant exposure routes.
