Environmental Cleanup on Contaminated Soil and Soil Remediation Treatment Projects

The George Throop Company has been doing soil remediation, environmental soil cleanup and cleaning contaminated soil on-site since the early 1990’s. We specialize in stabilization/solidification technology. Stabilization and solidification technology relies on the reaction between a binder and the soil to stop, prevent or reduce the mobility of the contaminants. Remediation usually has regulatory requirements involved based on the assessments of human health or ecological risks in place. We have a very high safety record, highly trained and experienced personnel, we own our own equipment, and our financial stability allows us to qualify for virtually any environmental remediation project.

This contaminated soil cleanup site was a small (3/4-1 acre) parcel located on a residential lot north of the 101 freeway in Santa Barbara, CA. Review of the site history indicated that the property had been utilized for many years as a scrap metal yard, junk yard and salvage yard. To facilitate a property transfer, the property owner was required to remediate the polluted soil onsite that contained elevated concentrations of heavy metals and hydrocarbons.

Arrow Highway, Rancho Cucamonga, CA
California Department of Toxic Substances Control

Blocked drains caused storm flooding at the Tamco property. Storm water runoff flowed through a railroad bridge and deposited lead contaminated sediment onto adjacent property south of the Tamco property.

Clean Up Technology was hired and conducted an assessment of the contaminated area. Bench scale tests were conducted and determined that Cement Kiln Dust from California Portland Cement would be the best medium to treat the contaminated soil.
