Environmental Testing of Your Water After A Spill
How does oil contaminate water?
Any type of petroleum spill has the propensity to seep through soil, concrete, or rock and contaminate surrounding bodies of water, sub-surface groundwater, and even the water table. This seepage of contaminants into the water can be mitigated and subsequently removed if the spill is responded to and treated with urgency and professionalism. As you are probably aware, our drinking water emanates from rivers, groundwater, and large bodies of water, therefore it is of high importance to avoid allowing gas or oil to find their way into these sources of water. Oil gets into these water sources through various means. While oil pollution does sometimes result in spills from tanker trucks and ocean tankers, the majority of oil contaminants in our water come from individuals allowing the contaminant to be poured down drains. Not only does North Texas Spill Response provide quick response oil spill cleanup and water testing, but we also provide household hazardous material removal.
Well Water Contamination
An oil spill can have a negative impact on the quality of water in residential private wells that are in close proximity to the spill. Therefore, if you have a spill and have notified the appropriate regulatory bodies this will enable them to alert any owners of private wells to have a competent professional provide a water test.
Many convenience stores and gas stations have underground gasoline storage tanks. If during a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment it is determined that gasoline is leaking from an underground tank, groundwater testing will need to be conducted to determine if any hydrocarbon contamination has seeped through the tank containment barriers.
Gasoline In Water
Unfortunately, it’s not common knowledge that one gallon of gasoline can contaminate up to one million gallons of water. Once water has been found to be contaminated the cleanup of the contaminated soil, freshwater, and groundwater can be expensive. Therefore, we suggest that you contact us to establish a relationship prior to a spill occurring.
Your Environmental Services Company
Water Contamination Remediation
The term remediation derives from remedy. So it follows that water contamination remediation would refer to the process of removing contaminants from water. If it has been determined that your site is producing unacceptable risks and that contaminants are present, you’re going to need a competent environmental services company to provide remediation services.
North Texas Spill Response offers free on-site consultation services to help your site to remain compliant but also to help you avoid any unnecessary oil spill releases. If you do experience a spill after you’ve enlisted our consulting services, we will quickly respond and clean up the spill. After the cleanup, if it is determined through testing that there is further contamination, to groundwater, soil, or other substances, we will provide an analysis of the situation and provide the best possible and most cost-effective remediation solutions for your site.
