Strategies for Transitioning from Active Remediation to Site Closure under Chapter 62-780 Risk Management Options Level III using Non-Declaration of Restrictive Covenant Institutional Controls
Ryan Tuttle, P.G., Project Geologist, Geosyntec Consultants, Inc.
Through Case Study examples, strategies for transitioning sites from active remediation to Risk Management Option II and III No Further Action with Controls will be presented. The case study will include a former optical lens manufacturer with chlorinated solvent groundwater impacts remediated through a combination of remedial technologies and transition from remediation to site closure under Risk Management Options Level III with Institutional Controls (IC) through quantitative and qualitative plume stability analysis. The ICs consists of Non-Declaration of Restrictive Covenant Institutional Controls (NDICs) using a Southwest Florida Water Management District well permitting shapefile to restrict groundwater use. The use of NDICs can assist to achieve ICs on multiple parcels in lieu of traditional deed restrictions.
