VOLUNTARY REMEDIATION PROGRAM COMPLIANCE STATUS REPORT: FORMER TRANSCO RAILCAR FACILITY, MACON, GEORGIA
Georgia Environmental Protection Division, 286 pp, 2019

The facility supported the railroad industry from 1889 to 1991. Environmental assessment activities identified lead and PCBs in soil and VOCs in groundwater. Remediation consisted of excavation of contaminated soils. During sampling, LNAPL was discovered in ~3 feet of well casing in monitoring well 2. This led to the installation of a free-phase LNAPL skimmer unit and continuous hydrophobic belt skimmer unit, selected based on their capability to extract LNAPL from a well casing with minimal water withdrawal (thus minimizing waste generation) and to extract LNAPL at its natural recovery rate at five extraction well points. LNAPL remediation was completed in 2018. The groundwater VOC plume was delineated and will continue to be monitored. https://epd.georgia.gov/sites/epd.georgia.gov/files/TranscoCSR.pdf
