The subject tanker was traveling Eastbound on a major highway when it struck another vehicle in the roadway. The driver lost control of the tractor trailer, which then left the roadway to the right before overturning and coming to rest in the SCDOT right-of-way.

Land Acquisition/Remediation - Convenience Store with Petroleum-Impacted Soil and Groundwater

HES was retained by a commercial business broker to take over an environmental remediation project from another consultant. Petroleum impacted soil and groundwater were discovered at the site in the mid-1990s. Several remediation strategies had been attempted and numerous groundwater monitoring events had been performed at the site prior to HES’ involvement. HES personnel discovered that the incident had not received regulatory closure due to the presence of one water supply well being within 500 feet of the site.
