St Peter’s Road is a 2-ha historically contaminated former industrial site in Rugby. RemedX was contacted to remediate the site where the contaminants included chlorinated solvents (soil, dense nonaqueous phase liquids and dissolved phase), lubricating oils (soil and light nonaqueous phase liquids), polyaromatic hydrocarbons and arsenic (soil).
The site, which had recently been purchased by a property developer, was in a densely residential area. The key remediation requirements were for the site to be suitable for a housing end-use, early completion of the northern part of the site to enable house building to begin and minimum disruption to neighbouring residential areas.
In the southern portion of the site, in-situ remediation was carried out to extract solvents from the groundwater beneath the site by high-vacuum, multiphase extraction process using an array of wells.
Impacted soil from three defined areas on the centre-east, north-east and north-west parts of the site were excavated and transferred to an ex-situ remedial treatment area in the central area of the site.
The following successful outcomes were recorded for the project:
