Project Highlights

  • First vapor intrusion mitigation barrier approved by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) under the Drycleaning Solvent Cleanup Program (DSCP)
  • Former drycleaner site successfully redeveloped and protected from harmful PCE and TCE contaminants
  • National pharmacy retail chain selects Geo-Seal® as part of construction plans

Project Summary

To accommodate a planned expansion, CVS Pharmacy acquired an adjoining vacant building (approximately 3000 square feet) which formerly operated as a commercial dry cleaning facility. Site investigations revealed chlorinated solvent contamination in groundwater beneath the building, including tetrachloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE).

The site was entered into the FDEP’s Drycleaning Solvent Cleanup Program. In order to prevent chlorinated contaminant vapor intrusion, Golder Associates designed a mitigation system using the Geo‐Seal Vapor Intrusion barrier. A soil vapor extraction system and monitoring wells were also installed to effectively treat the subsurface contamination.
