Executive summary
MGMS Environmental was retained by the Township of Uxbridge (hereafter referred to as the
Client) to complete a Phase II Environmental Assessment (ESA) on a property ranging from
Centennial Drive to north of Brock street, Uxbridge (hereafter referred to as the Site). The Site
is presented in Figure 1. This Phase II was completed in general accordance with the Canadian
Standards Association (CSA) Z769-00 and O. Reg. 153/04 (as amended by 511/09). The Phase I
ESA recommended that a Phase II ESA be completed to evaluate potential environmental
concerns associated with the soil and groundwater
The subject Site includes 30 and 34 Brock Street West, Uxbridge and the surrounding study area
of a 250 meter radius. The sites are currently home to a hair salon, youth centre, police station,
and residential units. The Phase II ESA study site is an irregularly shaped area of approximately
0.2 hectares, as depicted in Figure 4.
The purpose of this Phase II ESA is to establish a chemical profile of the current soil and
groundwater conditions based on the information provided from the Phase I ESA within the
subject Site. The Phase I recommends that the following require further investigation:
Records of expired Underground Storage Tanks (UST) containing gasoline as there are
no records of the decommissioning of these tanks which represent a potentially
contaminating activity.
Records of a former gas station located on the site, which poses a contaminating activity
as it is generally accepted that gas stations always have leaks.
The lack of mitigation records regarding the spills of gasoline and heating oil.
Records of two spills from underground storage tanks caused by damage from moving
equipment and causes unknown; both of these spills have possible and confirmed
environmental impacts.
The aim of this assessment was to address the following objectives:
Determine the location and concentration of contaminants from USTs, and gas and diesel
spills in the land or water on, in, or under the Site.
Obtain information regarding environmental conditions in the land or water in order to
undertake a risk assessment.
Determine if the applicable Site Condition Standards and conditions for contaminants on,
in or under the Phase II site are met.
Determine whether the following contaminants are present on, in or under the Site:
BTEX, VOC, PAH, or Heavy metals (Lead).
Steps that could be taken to confirm, refute, or delineate contamination.
The limitations of this Phase II ESA are as follows,
Limited turnaround time to develop new sampling plans after receiving preliminary
results.
Clarity of historic information provided.
There were no access limitations to the planned drilling locations.
i

The site investigation and records review conducted for the Site includes findings such as:
TSSA reports no UST was reported on the subject Site,
EcoLog ERIS identified that USTs are located on the subject site.
Ontario Spills records indicate two spills pertaining to pipeline hits.
Environmental Protection Zone located north of the subject site.
Topographic maps identified that groundwater and precipitation runoff flows in a
northerly direction.
These findings helped facilitate an on-site reconnaissance of the subject Site, in which the
following key findings were found:
Environmental monitoring wells were found on site.
Interview with owner stated previous spills of gasoline and heating oil.
Designated substances potentially found in building structures.
Surrounding properties of concern include a Shell gas station.
Soil and groundwater samples were taken and selected samples were sent to Niagara
Laboratories and tested for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), Benzene-TolueneEthylbenzene-Xylene (BTEX), Heavy Metals (Lead), and Petroleum Aromatic Hydrocarbons
(PAH). This Phase II ESA included the drilling of 19 boreholes over three sampling rounds.
After the completion of the sampling and analysis, the total cost of the project was calculated at
$46,671.12.
VOC and BTEX contamination was found to be located at the Macs Milk on the subject site.
There was confirmed VOC and BTEX contaminants above the Soil, Ground Water and Sediment
Standards for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act - Tables 2 and 8 in the
soil samples at the Mac's Milk location to a depth of 23m; however, the groundwater samples
were found to be below the Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards for Use Under Part
XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act - Tables 2 and 8 (see section 8.1.3).
Based on the findings of this Phase II ESA, we suggest a risk assessment should be conducted
for the Site in order to determine the potential risks the contaminants from the Site may pose to
the human and natural environment. Risk assessments are useful to help owners and developers
determine property specific standards that ensure that all major pathways for contaminants are
addressed, and all contaminants in, on or under the property are assessed.

1.0 Introduction
1.1 Site Description
The subject site includes 30 and 34 Brock Street West, Township of Uxbridge. The Site is used
for general commercial uses, and consists of the Mondo hair salon, Uxbridge Youth Center, and
a Durham Regional Police Service Station. The Property Identification Numbers (PIN) of the
Site(s) are 26844-0102, 26844-0103, 26845-0002 and 26845-0071. The Site is an irregular shape
and is approximately 0.2 hectares in size. The Site is located within the Uxbridge-Brooke
watershed and, located north of the subject Site, is an Environmental Protection Zone (EPZ)
meaning it is an environmentally sensitive area. Based on the topographic map, the groundwater
and precipitation runoff is expected to flow in a northerly direction towards the EPZ. The Phase
II area includes both commercial and institutional land uses. This includes automotive service
shops, Shell Canada, retailers, handyman services, and offices.

1.2 Property Ownership


This Phase II Environmental Site Assessment was prepared for the Township of Uxbridge,
Regional Municipality of Durham (the Client); and Ben Kester, the owner from Centennial
Drive to north of Brock Street, Uxbridge. In an interview, Mr. Kester stated that there is no
intended land-use changes happening in the near future.
The Client can be contacted at:
The Corporation of the Town of Uxbridge
51 Toronto Street South
Uxbridge, Ontario
L9P 1T1

1.3 Current and Proposed Land Uses


The Site currently operates under institutional and commercial land-use. The Mondo hair salon is
a two-storey concrete structure which includes a basement holding a gas furnace and a water
heating tank. In addition, this building includes areas for a dance studio and storage. The
Uxbridge Youth Center and Durham Regional Police Service Station are both single-storey
concrete buildings which include a basement used only for storage purposes. Both of these
buildings use the water heater and gas furnace located in Mondo hair salon. The current land
uses continue to be used for institutional and commercial purposes and, at present, there are no
proposed future land uses. The Phase I and II ESAs were conducted to assess the land for due
diligence in the proposed culvert replacement project. This project must be in compliance with
the Environmental Protection Act; thus, it must meet all Site Condition Standards.

1.4 Application of Site Condition Standards


The sampling of soil and groundwater was completed at various points throughout the Site.
Images of the sampling plans can be found in the Appendix, Figures 1, 2 and 3. The samples of
soil and groundwater were sent to Niagara College Laboratories for chemical analysis. Using the
Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental
Protection Act, the data was compared with the criteria in Table 8: Generic Site Condition
Standards for Use within 30 meters of a Water Body in a Potable Groundwater Condition
1

standard for non-agricultural property uses, and Table 2: Full Depth Generic Site Condition
Standards in a Potable Ground Water Condition standard for commercial property uses. The
application of the Site Condition Standards will aid in the completion of the objectives for
carrying out this Phase II ESA.

1.5 Objectives
This Phase II Environmental Site Assessment will address the following:
There are records of expired USTs containing gasoline and there are no records of the
decommissioning of these tanks which represent a potentially contaminating activity.
There are records that a former gas station was located on the site and it is generally
accepted that gas stations always have leaks.
The lack of mitigation records regarding the spills of gasoline and heating oil that
occurred on the Phase I study area which represents a potentially contaminating activity.
Records of two spills from underground storage tanks, causes are damage and from
moving equipment and unknown; both spills have possible and confirmed environmental
impacts.
Records of environmental monitoring wells.
This Phase II ESA aims to complete the following objectives:
Determine the location and concentration of contaminants from USTs, and gas and diesel
spills in the land or water on, in, or under the Phase II site.
Obtain information regarding environmental conditions in the land or water in order to
undertake a risk assessment, and compare to the Site Condition Standards in the EPA.
Determine if the applicable site condition standards and conditions for contaminants on,
in or under the Phase II site are met.
Determine whether the following contaminants are present on, in or under the site:
BTEX, VOC, PAH, or Heavy metals (Lead).
Determine steps that could be taken to confirm, refute, or delineate contamination.
The aforementioned objectives were completed to the best ability of MGMS Environmental, as
the limitations are not expected to have impeded the results of the study.

1.6 Limitations
The limitations of this Phase II ESA are as follows,
Clarity of historic information provided. For example, records of UST for gasoline found
on EcoLog ERIS, but the Customer Service Representative at Technical Standards and
Safety Authority claimed there were no registered USTs for the subject Site.
Limited turnaround time to develop new sampling plans after receiving preliminary
results.
There were no access limitations to the planned drilling locations.

2.2 Past Investigations


The Township of Uxbridge has experienced various development changes overtime. In order to
discover historical developments and land use changes, a Phase I ESA was completed. The Phase
I ESA included an interview with the property owner and a detailed records review which
facilitated a Phase I site reconnaissance.
Key findings from the interview with Ben Kester conducted on May 10th, 2012 include:
Site owner and representative indicated that the heating system is located in Mondo
hair salon.
3

Key findings from the records review include:


TSSA reported no UST was reported on subject Site.
EcoLog ERIS identified that USTs are located on the subject site. ERIS identified that
there was a gas station previously located on site and the UST was used for gasoline
purposes.
Ontario Spills records indicate two spills pertaining to pipeline hits. Both spills lead to
potential and actual soil contamination. The first spill occurred in 1989 regarding a
heating oil spill and the second spill occurred in 2004 regarding a gasoline spill.
Zoning maps identified that an Environmental Protection Zone is located north of the
subject site.
Topographic maps identified that groundwater and precipitation runoff is expected to
flow in a northerly direction.
These findings helped facilitate an on-site reconnaissance of the subject Site, in which the
following key findings were found:
Centennial Park, south of the subject Site, was formerly a landfill.
Environmental monitoring wells were found on site.
Designated substances potentially found in building structures.
Surrounding properties of concern include a Shell gas station.
Therefore, the records review discovered that there have been past incidents that may have
potentially involved investigations prior to the Phase I ESA with findings of spills recorded from
1989 and 2004 regarding a heating oil spill and a gasoline spill.

3.0 Scope of the Investigation


3.1 Overview of Site Investigation
The purpose of this investigation was to delineate the extent of subsurface contaminants
identified on the Phase I ESA that completed on the subject property. The study was completed
in general accordance with the CSA Standard Z769-00 and O. Reg. 153/04 (as amended by
511/09).
The Phase II ESA included drilling 19 boreholes at various depths, with the potential of going all
the way down to 30m, dependent on location of the borehole to the Area of Potential
Environmental Concern (APEC). Three monitoring groundwater wells were installed around
three of the boreholes and one monitoring well was installed between two of the other boreholes
(see Figure 1). Soil and groundwater samples were taken and selected samples were sent to
Niagara Laboratories and tested for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Benzene-TolueneEthylbenzene-Xylene (BTEX), Heavy Metals (Lead), and Petroleum Aromatic Hydrocarbons
(PAH) (see Table 1).

3.2 Media Investigated


The media investigated for potential contamination in this Phase II ESA was soil and
groundwater samples. The sampling procedures were conducted following the Ministry of
Environmental and Climate Change Sampling Guideline as outlined by the APGO. Samples
4

were sent to and analyzed by a CALA certified laboratory - Niagara Laboratories. The
laboratory analytical methods, procedures, and protocols were followed in accordance with O.
Reg. 153/04 (as amended by 511/09).

3.3 Deviations from Sampling and Analysis Plan


Once the sampling of both media types began, there needed to be adjustments to the original
sampling plan in order to properly address areas of concern. The first round of sampling
confirmed the presence of BTEX and VOC contamination under the Mac's Milk
property. Adjustments for a secondary sampling plan were developed to delineate the
contamination due to the results of the laboratory analysis. An additional six boreholes were
placed around the confirmed contaminated borehole in Round 1 of sampling. A third round of
sampling including the addition of six more boreholes was performed to further delineate the
contamination depth and to ensure that all areas above regulatory standards were accounted
for. The deviations in the sampling plan were performed in general accordance with the CSA
Standard Z769-00 and O. Reg. 153/04 (as amended by 511/09).

4.0 Investigation Methods


In accordance with CSA-Z769-00, the following activities were completed during the Phase II
ESA investigation. It is important to note, that the proponent had requested an in depth
investigation of the Phase II property. Prior to the start of the assessment, the proponent had
expressed direct concern of potential petroleum based contamination on site. For this reason,
MGMS Environmental conducted a lengthy and thorough investigation of the subject property.
Temporal and financial restraints of this Phase II assessment were not as substantial as many
other municipal infrastructure development projects due to the desire of the proponent for a
comprehensive and exhaustive analysis of contamination on site.

4.1 General
A site reconnaissance was completed prior to drilling to observe for potential health and safety
risks. Ontario 1-Call utility services was contacted initially to ensure the locations of utilities in
the area. Any and all power lines or underground utilities were noted in a prepared document
which was provided to the drilling crew. A health and safety plan was prepared and all crew
members wore the required personal protective equipment.

4.2 Drilling and Excavation


Borehole drilling was completed in three stages over a one week period under the direction of
MGMS Environmental from November 21st to November 28th, 2015. For borehole drilling, a
Diedrich D-25 Truck Mounted Drill was used. This equipment was subcontracted from Walker
Drilling Ltd. based in Utopia, Ontario. This particular drilling rig was selected for this drilling
plan due to its versatility and depth capability of up to 100 feet.

4.3 Soil: Sampling


A total of 92 subsurface soil samples were collected from nineteen boreholes across the Phase II
property. Split spoon sampling devices were used to obtain soil samples. Due to the high silt
content and compaction of soil at borehole drilling locations, a week period (November 21st to
November 28th, 2015) was used for the taking of soil samples.
5

4.4 Groundwater: Monitoring, Sampling, Well Installation


From these nineteen boreholes, four were selected for groundwater monitoring. Each borehole
chosen for groundwater sampling was installed with a 50mm groundwater monitoring well. The
wells were installed to depths approximate to 10m. All were registered, installed and tagged in
accordance with Ontario Regulation 903, under the Ontario Water Resources Act.
After completion of drilling activities, a water well record was submitted to the MOECC. From
this point forward, it is expected that the Site Owner will ensure the wells are maintained
appropriately and protected from adverse conditions. In accordance with Ontario Regulation 903,
it is the responsibility of the Site Owner to ensure the monitoring wells are properly
decommissioned when no longer in use.
Groundwater was measured at a depth of 10m for the four monitoring wells. Each monitoring
well was installed with a high-density 10mm tube outfitted with a Waterra foot-valve pump for
sample collection of VOCs. For the sample collection of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination,
a 25mm water bailer was attached to each well. Following collection, all samples were sent to
the Niagara College Laboratories for analysis.

4.5 Analytical Testing and Iterative Process


All laboratory analytical testing was completed by Niagara Laboratories, located in Niagara-onthe-Lake, Ontario. Samples were submitted to the laboratory as per the Phase II sampling plan.
While a large quantity of samples were collected, many were submitted to Niagara Laboratories
on an iterative basis. Three rounds of sampling were completed. The first round of borehole
drilling involved three boreholes and the taking of ten samples. However, only eight samples
were sent to the laboratory for analysis. In the second round ten boreholes were drilled and
seventy samples taken, while only forty were sent in for laboratory sampling. In round three, six
boreholes were drilled and all twelve soil samples were sent in for analysis. To ensure the quality
of the samples that were sent in for analysis, residue management procedures were implemented.

4.6 Residue Management Procedures


For soil sampling, the split spoons used were cleaned prior to sampling. Before each subsequent
sample, non-phosphate detergent was applied, and the spoon was then washed clean with water.
This residue management procedure was completed to prevent potential cross-contamination.
Groundwater monitoring well stations were purged and pumped before sampling to ensure the
sample was not taken from a standing water column and that the sample taken was representative
of groundwater condition on the Site.

4.7 Quality Assurance/Quality Control


During the Phase II ESA, various quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) protocols were
employed to ensure that the obtained samples are representative of the Site. The laboratory
QA/QC protocols included taking the refrigerated samples and performing analysis to test for
BTEX, VOC's, PAH's and Heavy Metals (Lead) in the selected soil and water samples as noted
in the sampling plans (see section 8.1.3). The following laboratory QA/QC protocols were taken
6

to ensure the obtained samples and analytic data provided by the laboratory are representative of
the Site samples.
The following QA/QC protocols were be taken:
Sampling jars were labeled and arranged in order of sample collection prior to
arriving on the Site during sampling date.
Soil samples were be extracted with a decontaminated split spoon apparatus.
Sampling apparatus were changed to minimize risk of cross-contamination of
samples.
Monitoring wells were installed and purged before taking groundwater samples under
MOECC guidelines 6.4.2 and 6.4.3.
Equipment and apparatus used for installing and purging monitoring wells were used
only for the well to minimize risk of cross-contamination.
Separate Nitrile gloves were used for handling each sample.
Soil and water samples were immediately placed in respectively labeled glass jars and
coolers on ice (to maintain ~4 degrees Celsius) for preservation as instructed by the
laboratory.
Secondary soil samples were collected in labeled airtight glass jars at the same time
as the primary sample.
Non-specific monitoring and sampling equipment (i.e. portable gas meter and water
quality meter) were cleaned and rinsed before and in between uses with Alconox and
distilled water.
Collection of Blank QC soil samples were to the laboratory.
Documentation of location and time of samples and QC samples collected.
Documentation of in-field testing methods and results.
Documentation of sampling protocols and procedures.
All sampling and monitoring methods were done in accordance with the MOECC
Sampling Guideline outlined by the APGO.
Selecting a certified Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation (CALA)

considered in the review and evaluation of the results of the project.

5.0 Review and Evaluation


5.1 Groundwater: Elevations and Flow, Hydraulic Gradients, and Quality
After sampling from the four groundwater monitoring wells, information on the characteristics of
groundwater flow on the site was collected. The elevation of groundwater on the Site found at
the four locations was approximately 260m. Review of topographical maps revealed that the site
descends to the north and has a south to north flow of groundwater. The temperature of
groundwater found on site was approximately 12degrees Celsius, was found to be free of odour
and colour, and no free product was noted in any samples.
8

5.2 Soil: Texture and Quality


The Township of Uxbridge is located on the Peterborough Drumlin Field which consists of
lacustrine sand, silt, clay and water-laid till on a glacial lake (Lake Schomberg). The soil at the
Site was determined to be underlain with silty sand till, sandy silt till, and silty and gravelly
sand. The deepest well noted in the MOECC Well Record was found 323 ft below the surface.

5.3 Contaminants on the Property


The first and second rounds of sampling indicated there was VOC and BTEX contamination in
the soil at 34 Brock Street North within the Phase II property. Out of a total of 19 boreholes
drilled in the Phase II ESA, just two were returned with soil above the site specific soil standards
of Tables 2 and 8 selected for this study.

5.4 Contaminated Media


After the first round of sampling, it was indicated that VOC and BTEX contaminants were
present on the Site.
5.4.1 Soil
There was confirmed VOC and BTEX contaminants above the Soil, Ground Water and Sediment
Standards for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act - Tables 2 and 8 in the
soil samples at the Mac's Milk location to a generous depth of 23m (see section 8.1.3).
5.4.2 Groundwater
The groundwater samples came back from the laboratory below the Soil, Ground Water and
Sediment Standards for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act - Tables 2 and
8 and was determined to not be contaminated (see section 8.1.3). To the north of the site a
monitoring well was installed to see if any contamination could be noted in the south to north
flow of groundwater. It is important to note that the absence of any notable contamination at all 4
monitoring wells illustrates the fine textured soils retaining the contaminants and restricting their
migration.

6.0 Conclusions

The Phase I records review noted 34 Brock Street as being the site of a former retail
gasoline outlet. This finding was of particular concern for this Phase II ESA. Further
sampling was carried out at this location to determine if a former gasoline storage tank on
this property had contributed to any areas of potential environmental concern.
Two soil samples taken via borehole in the back parking lot of the 34 Brock Street
property noted levels of BTEX and VOCs in the soil above the Table 2 & 8 of Ontarios
Site Specific Soil Standards in Ontario Regulation 153/04 (as amended 511/09).
After a general area of contaminants was delineated, further sampling was done in an
area around the noted contamination to determine an area confirmed to be clear of both
BTEX and VOCs. The delineated area in this study was found to be 5076.04 m3.
Due to the depth of contamination noted (23m), the fine grained texture of soils, the low
potential for migration and the costs associated with remediation on this site, it has been
recommended that a risk assessment be completed for this property to better determine
site specific standards and to scientifically study the potential risks this contamination
plume may pose to the human and natural environment in the immediate area.

6.1 Summary of Site Conditions


In summary, a plume of contamination has been identified in the parking lot of 34 Brock Street
North, in the Township of Uxbridge. The property is located in the middle of the proposed
culvert development, with the contamination plume being found in the back parking lot. A zone
of contamination has been delineated through borehole sampling.
While the methods are not precise, approximately 235.72m2 area has been confirmed as being
impacted by contaminants to at least 23m in depth. The volume of soil in the delineated area is
approximately 5076.04 m3. If the weight of soil is considered to be approximately 1600 kg/m3,
than the total weight of impacted soil in the delineated area is 97,137 tonnes. It should be noted
that contamination in the delineated area has confirmed to be in a plume formation. BH3/RD1
samples were contaminated all the way from 6 - 20m in depth, while BH2/RD2 had
contamination only at the lower samples of 18 and 21m in depth. For this reason, the volume and
weight estimation is not truly representative of the total amount of contamination, and only an
area that has been confirmed to be contaminated. All soil found outside this delineated area is
confirmed not to be above the Site Specific Soil Standard under Ontario Regulation 153/04 (as
amended 511/09). Further sampling must be completed in order to fully conclude the exact size
of the contamination plume within the delineated area. Further delineation of the contamination
is recommended as it can help limit costs of remediation measures.

6.2 Environmental Conditions


The contaminants of concern (COC) that were found on the subject site in soils were BTEX
and VOCs, which were discovered to be above the Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards
for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act - Tables 2 and 8. This excludes
groundwater, as contaminants were below the Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards for
Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act - Tables 2 and 8 and are not found to
be of concern. Due to the physical properties of the site and the above standard concentrations of
BTEX and VOCs found in soil, the contamination may further affect other media if a risk
assessment or remediation is not undertaken.

All soil found outside the delineated area is confirmed not to be above the Site Specific Soil
Standard under Ontario Regulation 153/04 (as amended 511/09). All groundwater sampled
throughout this Phase II ESA was confirmed to be below the Site Specific Soil Standard under
Ontario Regulation 153/04.

6.4 Recommendations
Based on the aforementioned results and conclusions, MGMS Environmental recommends that
any remediation measures specifically target the delineated area in this Phase II ESA. However,
several site specific conditions act as limitations to possible remediation solutions. Soils in the
compacted area are mainly silty clays, and with approximately 5076.04 m3 of material found at a
depth of at least 23m, many ex-situ or off-site remediation options such as a dig and dump
excavation are simply not feasible.
In the first round of sampling, soil and groundwater samples were taken to the north of the site
and had no notable signs of contamination. In the second round of sampling, the boreholes taken
around the APEC found that no notable contamination had migrated out of the delineated area.
For these reasons, we do not believe the contaminants on site to be of particular risk of
migration. The silty clay soil on the subject property will also hold the contamination in place
better than a coarse grained sediment, such as sand. The current commercial land use of the
property is not particularly sensitive, and is occupied by a convenience store. For the above
reasons, we believe a risk assessment should be conducted for the Site to scientifically determine
the risks the site may pose to the human and natural environment in the immediate area. Risk
assessments can help owners/developers achieve property specific standards that ensure that all
major pathways for contaminants are addressed and all contaminants in or on the property are
assessed.

7.0 Limitations/Modifications/Learnings
7.1 Sampling plan
In terms of the sampling plan, MGMS took the safe route and drilled a significant number of
boreholes to ensure that all of the contamination was found and addressed. While our team took
a large number of boreholes, as a group of new consultants, we believe this approach was
necessary based on the nature of the Site and its past history of USTs and spills. While we
believe we took the fast, easy and logical approach, with more experience conducting Phase II
ESAs, MGMS would be more likely to address the contamination with fewer boreholes and
monitoring wells in order to save on costs if confronted with a similar site in the future.
In our original sampling plan we had included Inorganic materials to be analyzed by the
laboratory; however, after further consideration we agreed that it was no longer necessary. With

11

more experience and knowledge of which samples require which testing methods, we will be
able to further save on costs in the future.
In round three of the sampling stage, PAHs and Lead packages were excluded from laboratory
analysis. As BH3/RD1 and BH2/RD2 returned positive for contamination, no lead or PAH levels
were noted in soil samples. If we were to do something differently, PAHs and lead would be
excluded from analysis altogether. Upon second consideration, there was not enough reason to
include those parameters based on the information yielded in the records review of the Phase I
ESA.

7.1.2 QA/QC
For QA/QC, if we were to do anything differently we would make a more concrete plan for
sampling blanks or spikes. Sampling blanks were only used in rounds one and three, and
sampling spikes were not used in any rounds. If done differently, both blanks and spikes would
be used across all three rounds in a more consistent plan.

7.1.3 Analysis
In terms of analysis, we ideally would have taken fewer boreholes in the first and second rounds
because the contamination was isolated to one area on the property. The first round should have
been more direct in addressing the information yielded in the records review, as BH1/RD1 and
BH2/RD1 were likely unnecessary. Those locations were taken to establish a baseline of
conditions for the whole Phase II site. They were located at the north and south corners of the
Phase II property to determine the state of soil and groundwater and if there was any change
across the site. However, we should have been more direct in addressing the concerns of the
Phase I assessment instead of attempting to establish site wide conditions of groundwater flow
through the site. Therefore, while we were being careful in our sampling plan, we could have
saved a significant amount in our overall costs by having a better idea of which areas to drill. In
addition, analyzing for lead and PAHs would be eliminated because there was not a strong
enough reason to include those parameters based on the Phase I ESA findings and
recommendations.

First sample taken from borehole 3.


Taken on northern central side of the
23 Brock Street West property.
Borehole Rationale: To confirm the
location of the source of
contamination on site. Borehole 3
will aid in accurately delineating the
source of contamination potentially
noted in Boreholes 1 or 2. Borehole 3
is critical to determining if previous
retail fuel outlet at 23 Brock Street
West contributed to contamination on
site.
Borehole Concern: Borehole 3 is
specifically concerned with the
location of an old gas station at 23
Brock Street. Samples will be taken
at the northern side of the property to
see if contamination has spread due
to the northern flow of ground and
surface water. Nearby spills of
gasoline are also of concern for this
borehole and its corresponding
samples. Previous retail fuel outlet in
1970s raises concerns of lead based
fuels on subject property. Local
heating oil spill raises concerns of
heavy fuels (PAHs).
