  3. 3. Site 14 BackgroundSite 14 Background • Former Department of Defense motor vehicle gasoline station • Two former 5,000 gallon underground storage tanks (USTs) removed in 1986 – Stored unleaded gasoline and diesel fuel • 1986 to 2006: Navy conducted soil sampling groundwater• 1986 to 2006: Navy conducted soil sampling, groundwater sampling, and treatability studies 3
  4. 4. Recent Site 14 ActivitiesRecent Site 14 Activities • 2008 to present: Additional sampling to characterize site • March 2010: Discovered uncharacterized area of petroleum constituents in groundwater • June 2010: Conducted groundwater sampling – Petroleum constituents related to Site 14Petroleum constituents related to Site 14 • Based on findings, air sparge treatment system design was modified to treat this areatreat this area – November 29: Begin field work 4

  6. 6. AirAir SpargingSparging)) • Inject air into the ground using air sparge wells and an air compressor • Injected air increases oxygen levels and promotes biodegradation of petroleum constituents in groundwater • Sparge wells will inject air into sandy water- bearing layer between 18 and 23 ft bgs to achieve treatment 6 • The system is expected to operate for one year followed by a monitoring period
