Most regulatory agencies require periodic sampling of groundwater monitoring well networks during site investigation and corrective action activities, usually on a quarterly basis. Since accurate groundwater monitoring data is vital for eventually obtaining closure, every groundwater monitoring event must be conducted in a manner that ensures validity of the results.
Creek Run currently conducts groundwater monitoring at over 70 facilities in conjunction with on-going investigation and remedial programs. Our highly-trained staff of geologists and environmental scientists monitors active and former UST sites, AST bulk plants, and related facilities. Monitoring activities include precise measurement of static water levels and free product thickness in wells, collection of groundwater samples for field testing and laboratory analysis, and documentation of the physical condition of monitoring wells and protective covers.
At Creek Run, groundwater monitoring activities are conducted in accordance with requirements of the applicable regulatory program following strict quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedures. Creek Run personnel routinely conducts groundwater monitoring events in the presence of regulatory personnel, including representatives of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) Section, State Cleanup Program (SCP), and Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP).
Concise, user-friendly groundwater monitoring reports prepared by Creek Run include a detailed description of sample collection and processing procedures, tabulated groundwater elevation data and laboratory analytical results, a groundwater flow map, a map depicting analytical results and the extent of impacted groundwater, laboratory reports, and field data sheets. For active remediation sites, monitoring reports also include system operation data and the amount of contaminants recovered during the reporting period.
