Project Details:

KERAMIDA completed a VAP Phase II Assessment of the former Hexion Specialty Chemicals facility located at Woodlawn, Hamilton County, Ohio. The work was performed to determine the environmental condition of the Property in accordance with the Ohio EPA VAP. The Property is located in a primarily commercial/light industrial area, and consists of two parcels of land totaling 14 acres.

To evaluate potential contaminants of concern, a push-probe investigation was performed across the Property and a hollow-stem auger rig was used to install VAP-compliant monitoring wells in strategic locations. In general, the borings were advanced to refusal to obtain soil stratigraphy, determine the appropriate screened interval for wells, and determine the depth to bedrock. Groundwater samples were taken from the installed wells. KERAMIDA also conducted asbestos sampling and PCB chip sampling at the site. Site geologic, hydrogeologic and physical characteristics were analyzed. The Phase II report also researched Ohio DNR Division of Water Groundwater Resources Section well log repository and classified the groundwater on the property. Lastly, the findings on soil, groundwater, and PCB chip samples were outlined in the report. The Property was subsequently carried through the NFA process and received a Covenant Not to Sue from Ohio EPA.
