EnISSA successfully conducts indoor MIP measurements at operational dry-cleaning site

The quality of soil and groundwater at many dry-cleaning sites has been compromised by chlorinated solvents. The complex dispersion of these contaminating substances frequently presents a major challenge.

The high density and subtle heterogeneous stratification of the soil always makes investigation difficult, which in turn affects the success of remediation. As well as this, the opportunities for data collection are often significantly limited in an urban context.

Compact Geoprobe makes HRSC investigation possible in small indoor spaces

  • Thanks to a ‘low-clearance’ Geoprobe, a detailed EnISSA MIP investigation is also possible at drilling sites with a working height of fewer than three metres.
  • As well as this, a good exhaust extraction system ensures safer working conditions in indoor spaces. 
  • The compact MIP and GC-MS detection unit is easy to move around in small indoor spaces.

HRSC investigation at dry-cleaning site in France

In the spring of 2021, EnISSA conducted a HRSC investigation inside an operational dry-cleaner’s premises in France. 25 EnISSA MIP measurements were carried out to locate the source zone and gain insight into the dispersion of contaminants. The client appreciated the real-time information provided by the measurements, which enabled them to react quickly and make timely adjustments to their approach during the investigation. The field team was complimented on their competent approach and patience in spite of the difficult working conditions.

Experience results in competent, successful approach

EnISSA, with the help of MIP technology, provides insight into the exact location of a contamination and its dispersion. Thanks to the extensive experience of our field teams, we can carry out these investigations at your location with limited working space. Questions about size or accessibility? Contact us. We would be happy to discuss what is possible at your location.
