RT - Innovator in Tank and Remediation
The solution-oriented engineering approach used
by RT Environmental Services, Inc. (RT) and its commitment to high quality
service require that it be an innovator in the use of new remediation
technologies. RT leads the way in knowing if, when, and how to use these new
RT has completed hundreds of tank and petroleum
pipeline groundwater investigation projects. These include tank management
programs for companies with 100+ tanks and major petroleum company multi-site
In one project for a major car rental company
in the Atlantic City area, gas vapors were detected while putting in sewers in a
city street. When another consultant was unable to rectify the problem and the
company was facing penalties from the Department of Environmental Protection, RT
RT avoided penalties by locating the problem,
identifying a solution, and designing a system that accounted for the company's
location on a barrier island near the ocean. RT installed a groundwater recovery
system of modular design using Calgon carbon pretreatment units. A special
sensor was needed to detect salt water entering the system because salt water
will foul the carbon and negatively affect the pretreatment system. On detection
of salt water, the autodialer system calls RT and shuts the system down until
the problem is corrected.
Other technologies employed on the site
included pulse-pumping and continuous monitoring of the effluent.
The remedial cleanup project was completed in
18 months and now requires monitoring only.
In the New Jersey/Pennsylvania area alone, RT
has completed over 100 projects using one or more of the investigation and
remediation techniques described below.
