Avionics Specialties Site RCRA, RFI/CMS, TCE, Metals

FTCH was selected to develop and implement an RFI/CMS work plan for the Avionics Specialties, Inc. site in Earlysville, Virginia. TCE and metals are the primary containments of concern. The facility is located above a groundwater divide with multidirectional groundwater flow away from the site. Limited investigations performed indicated soil and groundwater in unconsolidated and fractured bedrock aquifers had been impacted along with one offsite private well. The RFI work used a phased approach with the initial phase focusing on evaluation of potential areas of concern and development of the site conceptual model. The subsequent phases were designed to determine all applicable receptors including a complete network nearby surface water bodies.
