Environmental Consulting & Management Projects
Rosebrook Place Underground Storage Tanks
In May 0f 2013, three underground storage tanks (USTs) known to contain/previously contain gasoline were located during excavation activities. Atlantic was called and immediately arrived on-site to perform organic vapor testing to assess potential site contamination. It was determined that due to the age of the tanks gasoline had released underneath the USTs and impacted surrounding soils, triggering an immediate response action at the Site. Atlantic became the environmental consultant for the IRA and removal of the tanks began a few days after discovering the USTs.
Atlantic supervised the removal of three USTs, excavation and stockpiling of 150 yards of impacted soils, testing of soils, installation of monitoring wells and analysis of groundwater, and managed all compliance services with Mass DEP. Atlantic filed a Class A-1 Response Action Outcome for Rosebrook Place on September 6, 2013, classifying the Site as contamination levels reduced to background and no further action required.
Air Quality Engineering & Permitting
Cook Medical Sterilization Facility
Atlantic has been involved in operations permitting, facility design and diagnostic testing with Cook Medical of Indiana since 1993. The facility currently operates Ethylene Oxide sterilizers able to sterilize heat sensitive medical products for distribution. Atlantic is currently performing a diagnostic test program to minimize Ethylene Oxide off-gassing and create a more effective sterilization cycle using nitrogen backwashes.
Methodology and resulting data will be incorporated into future designs for sterilization systems in and out of the country. Atlantic also hopes to create a more effective sterilization process at all facilities while providing a safer employee working environment through minimized exposure to Ethylene Oxide.
