Groundwater Remediation | Groundwater Filtration | Filtra-Systems
HYDROCARBON REMOVAL FROM GROUND WATER
The system provided to Imperial Oil consists of (2) units processing 300 gpm each, and removing the hydrocarbons (mostly crude oil) from groundwater. Soil is continually excavated and then removed from site and the excavation process uncovers more and more groundwater from the former refinery. The result is the formation of ponds, which are pumped to the water treatment facility. The oil is first separated from the groundwater with an IGF and then water is polished with the HDBF, prior to discharge to the river.
The produced water that is sent to the filter contains 10 ppm TO 50 ppm of the hydrocarbon. The effluent quality is less than 1 ppm hydrocarbon and TSS. The Backwash water from this groundwater filtration is continually processed and skim from the IGF is stored and then trucked offsite.
Once soil and groundwater remediation is complete, the land may be used for condos, supermarkets, and various other commercial developments including hotels restaurants, and a marina.
