CASE STUDY: Big Box Retail Store Receives “No Further Action” Status after Geo-Seal Application

Project Highlights

  • Incorporated the new Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s (IEPA) Tiered Approach to Corrective Action Objectives (TACO) legislation vapor intrusion regulations
  • Geo-Seal® applied to 150,000 square feet of commercial space
  • Geo-Seal® application helped obtain a “No Further Action” letter

Project Summary

Geo-Seal was selected to mitigate vapor intrusion at a new retail development in Skokie, Illinois. The former industrial site was contaminated with chlorinated solvents (PCE, TCE, DCE and VC) and regulatory agencies required mitigation. A developer purchased the underutilized 15-acre light industrial business park for redevelopment and initial due diligence investigations identified numerous environmental issues on the property.

Geo-Seal was applied to 150,000-square-feet of retail space and the applicator was able to meet union labor guidelines for the project. Vapor intrusion risks were also mitigated at a fast-food restaurant and bank on-site through the application of Geo-Seal. The site was issued a draft “No Further Remediation” letter with the final letter issued upon completion of the engineered barriers constructed as part of the redevelopment.
