    Zero Valent Iron-based Permeable Reactive barrier Design, Construction and Performance Monitoring

Zero Valent Iron-based Permeable Reactive barrier Design, Construction and Performance Monitoring

XCG was retained by Leggett & Platt Inc. (LPI) to provide engineering services in relation to the investigation of soil and groundwater quality and subsequent remediation of a former industrial facility, located at 66 Jutland Road, Etobicoke, Ontario. Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) completed by XCG identified the presence of elevated concentrations of chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs) within the shallow overburden soil and groundwater at the site. To meet LPI’s needs and to manage potential liabilities related to off-site migration of CVOC-containing groundwater, XCG designed a Daramend-based permeable reactive barrier (PRB) along the east property boundary.

Methane Venting System – Construction Management

Based on our previous work on a commercial property that was next to a historical municipal landfill, the new owner of a retail plaza requested XCG to assist with the implementation of a methane protection system. Due to the close proximity of the old landfill, a condition of development was that full protection from possible methane intrusion was to be provided for any and all buildings constructed.

Oshawa Harbour Risk Assessment (2017), City of Oshawa

In the period between 2014 and 2017, XCG was retained by the City of Oshawa to obtain a Record of Site Condition (RSC) for the former Marina Lands and West Wharf Lands located at the southeast corner of Harbour Road and Simcoe Street South (subject site). This former industrial/commercial site is intended to be converted to parkland and therefore triggers the requirement for a RSC.
