SITEWIDE ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING SEMIANNUAL PROGRESS REPORT FOR THE YOUNG-RAINEY STAR CENTER, DECEMBER 2016 THROUGH MAY 2017
LMS/PIN/N02159, 518 pp, 2017

The STAR Center is owned by the Pinellas County [Florida] Industrial Development Authority, but DOE is responsible for remediation activities at the site. DOE developed and manufactured components for the nation's nuclear weapons program while it owned the facility, and during those operations the groundwater became contaminated with TCE, DCE, VC, and 1,4-dioxane. To address this contamination, bioinjection of emulsified vegetable oil and the microorganism Dehalococcoides mccartyi was conducted in the dissolved-phase plumes on the STAR Center property in October and November 2014, on three offsite properties in February 2015 and February/March 2017, and in the horizontal wells beneath Building 100 in November 2015 and January/February 2017. Monitoring to evaluate the performance of these actions was initiated with the March 2015 sampling event and is ongoing. https://www.lm.doe.gov/Pinellas/N02159_PIN_dec16-may17.pdf
