WEST CHESTER, Pa., Sept. 21, 2015 – Weston Solutions joined the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) and other local officials on Monday to celebrate sustainability enhancements at the ReSolve Superfund site in North Dartmouth, MA.
Weston constructed the original groundwater treatment system at the ReSolve site in 1997 and has been operating the system and performing environmental monitoring at the site since system startup in 1998. In 2011/2012, sustainability enhancements designed and constructed by Weston (in collaboration with the ReSolve Site PRP Group) included anaerobic bioreactors that stimulate growth of naturally-occurring bacteria (thus breaking down groundwater contaminants) and the installation of a 150-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system that provides all of the electricity to power the groundwater treatment system.
Monday’s event was attended by U.S. Congressman Bill Keating (D-MA 9th District), EPA Region 1 Administrator Curt Spaulding, and other EPA, state, and local government officials. Also in attendance was Weston Chief Operating Officer Larry Bove who noted, “The Resolve Superfund Site enhancements recognized today could not have occurred if not for the leadership of the Resolve Site PRP Group and the collaboration with the regulatory and academic community.”
Weston is under contract to operate, monitor and maintain the treatment system and solar facilities for 15 years. Learn more from the EPA here.
