INJECTION & VACUUM EXTRACTION

Location: Active Retail Fuel Facility, Oklahoma

Services Provided: Field Technician, Remediation

Whiterock provided 40-hour Hazwoper certified labor for an injection and vacuum extraction event on six monitoring wells at an operating convenience store in Altus, OK. The surfactant injections were targeted at specific wells cited by the consultant as having historical impact above SSTLs. The surfactant breaks down and mobilizes fuel molecules attached to clay. Vacuum extraction then pulls the fuel, water and vapor to the surface to be stored until the end of the event.  Our team coordinated waste disposal with a certified reclamation facility.
