Assessment of Hydrocarbon Impact in Drinking Water Aquifer

QuantArray-Petro: Assessment of Hydrocarbon Impact in Drinking Water Aquifer

• A homeowner dependent on a domestic water well suddenly saw an accumulation of a black precipitant clogging the pre-filter of their water treatment system. Two years previous to this observation there was a release of gas condensate hydrocarbons and saltwater upgradient of their property.

• The results of the QuantArray®-Petro analysis provided evidence of hydrocarbon impact in the drinking water aquifer upgradient of the homeowner’s property in a remarkably cost-effective manner and contributed to a settlement of this case to the benefit of the homeowner.

Characterizing Microbial Communities and Assessing Biodegradation Potential

NGS and QuantArray-Chlor: Characterizing Microbial Communities and Assessing Biodegradation Potential

• A pilot study was conducted at a site where electron donor was injected into groundwater impacted by a mixture of chlorinated solvents.

• QuantArray®-Chlor and NGS provided complimentary evidence of both biotic and abiotic reductive dechlorination in response to the injection of the electron donor giving the client confidence in this remediation strategy expanding electron donor injection to the entire site.
