It is therefore subject to change as new information becomes available. We recommend contacting the assigned project staff prior to making decisions based on this information.


During an excavation for installation of a new pipeline associated with a compressor project on September 4, 2012, a historical release was discovered in the area of an abandoned subterranean pipe. Approximately 33 cubic yards of contaminated soil was stockpiled on site for further characterization. Soil samples collected from the floor of the excavation detected diesel range organics (DRO) at 320 to 8,200 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) at 3.5 to 4.5 feet below ground surface and gasoline range organics (GRO) at 340 mg/kg at 3.5 feet below ground surface. The sidewall sample collected at 2 feet below ground surface detected DRO at 590 mg/kg. The contamination was determined to be a release of natural gas condensate. The excavation measured approximately 12 feet by 25 feet at a depth of up to 4 feet, but generally 3 feet or less in depth. Following characterization activities the excavation was backfilled with clean soil upon pipeline project completion.

9/20/2012 Conceptual Site Model Submitted The Initial Conceptual Site Model was submitted with the Initial Site Characterization Report, Beaver Creek Pad 1A, dated September 19, 2012, prepared by Weston Solutions. Human health exposure pathway via subsurface soil and or groundwater is potentially complete for future residents, current and future commercial/industrial, current and future construction works, future farmers or subsistence harvesters, and future subsistence consumers. Human health bathway via biota ingestion is potentially complete for future residents, future farmers or subsistenace harvesters, and future subsistence consumers. Alyce Hughey

9/25/2014 Report or Workplan Review - Other Review and approve work plan for the investigation of chronic releases at the Dehi building. Peter Campbell
10/9/2015 Report or Workplan Review - Other Review 2014 Soil and Groundwater Investigation Report. Nine soil borings were drilled to 25 feet. Five of the borings had groundwater samples with a Geoprobe sampler. Two of the groundwater samples had diesel range hydrocarbons at 1.77 and 2.38 mg/L. The direction of groundwater flow was not determined. The extent of contamination was not delineated. Contaminants appear to originate on the north side of the Dehydration Building. No delineation of contamination has been conducted to the south. Peter Campbell
