SCAP Grant

By November 15, 2021News

BEC is pleased to announce that the State Water Resources Control Board (State Board) has issued a $3.5 million Site Cleanup Subaccount Program (SCAP) grant to one of our clients in association with an application that BEC submitted in June, 2020.  The grant will fund the implementation of a groundwater remediation program to address trichloroethene (TCE) and other VOCs in a fine-grained water bearing zone in Orange County, California.  The remedial program, which will be implemented over a three-year program, involves the application of multiple technologies, including electrical resistive hearting, dual phase (soil and groundwater) extraction within fine -grained horizons and limited gradient control in the underlying more permeable units. The approach is designed to remove over 95% of the VOC mass in the subsurface over a relatively short time interval.  Keys to obtaining the grant included the application of innovative technologies, the speed at which progress is anticipated on this project (total duration is estimated at three years) and BEC prior track-record in implementing successful SCAP grant programs.
