Vactor 2115 PD Unit is a piece of equipment that is a powerful and efficient industrial vacuum loader system that can tackle the toughest cleaning and offloading applications. Vactor equipment has an extendable boom that extends the hose out further, enabling the operator to work over certain obstacles, such as ditches, walls and fences.
The Vactor can handle the full spectrum of wet and dry materials such as soil, liquids, slurries, and thick sludge. This material comes from industrial areas such as cement plants, mills, railroads, oil refineries, chemical facilities and power-generating stations. The Vactor is also equipped to handle simple applications such as storm drains and cesspools.
The Vactor offloading application can dump contaminated material into roll-offs or directly into transfer facilities.
SANITARY SYSTEM ABANDONMENT
System Sampling will be required for SVOCs, VOCs and 8 RCA Metals for Suffolk County Department of Health Requirements.
The first septic tank/leaching pool, from the foundation, was located and uncovered.
If liquid sewage was noted therein, was pumped dry by a licensed sewage hauler.
Tank/Pool was inspected for outlet line to an overflow pool.
Overflow pool(s) was/were located, uncovered and items #2 and #3 were repeated until all parts of sanitary systems were located.
All parts of sanitary system were removed of filled with clean backfill and any corbelled bock domes.
SANITARY / STORM DRAIN SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
Storm Drain Maintenance
These systems transport and collect runoff rain water that may contain certain pollutants from parking lots and roads. Over extended periods of time these structures become impacted and clogged which results in flooding.
Restoring proper drainage of these structures requires maintenance. All rainwater must be removed from structures to access the sand bottoms. Removal of water can be performed with either a pump truck, trailer, or by trash pumping the water from one storm drain into an empty storm drain. Then a vactor/guzzler will remove the bottom sediment from these structures. Bank run soil is required to be placed back into structures to insure them from settling. Proper drainage will then be restored.
The cost for this service is inexpensive because soil removed can be disposed at a landfill.
Sanitary System Maintenance
These systems consist of septic tanks, grease traps and overflow leaching cesspools. Septic tanks and grease traps should be maintained by monthly or quarterly services which remove the solid waste. The leaching cesspools take the overflow liquids which drains into the ground through the sand bottoms of structures. Over time some of these solids make their way into the leaching cesspools. This clogs the sand bottoms and can destroy the drainage of the sanitary systems by creating system backups which require pumping.
Restoring proper drainage of these structures require maintenance. The removal of all liquids from leaching cesspools is necessary. Removal can be performed by a pump truck or trailer. Then a vactor/guzzler will remove the bottom sediment from these structures. Often, bank run soil is required to be placed back into leaching pools to insure them from settling.
This is a more costly option than a storm drain maintenance due to the soil disposal cost. This soil is considered a non-hazardous waste and is disposed at an approved transfer facility. This service will restore drainage and save on future costs because the need for excessive pumping from backups will no longer be an issue.
The term "roll-off" and "container" specifies larger metal boxes, commonly used for commercial and industrial soil waste disposal. They are available in standard sizes 15, 20 and 30-yard containers. Roll-off containers are the most cost efficient solution in providing your waste transportation needs for large projects. Containers are available with liners and covers when required. Roll-off containers can directly transport contaminated soil to the proper disposal facilities.
Roll off services are commonly used to back fill storm drains and cesspools. Back fill is used to restore soil removed during a vactor or guzzler service.
REMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED CESSPOOL
The practice of discharging hazardous and unpermitted non-hazardous fluids into subsurface soils via injection wells or leaching structures is no longer common practice in today’s environment. However, unintentional discharges often occur.
If an injection point (drainage point) is suspected to be contaminated, we can provide remedial services to remove the contamination and “close out” the injection point. All of this being completed with our in-house staff and specialized equipment.
When injection wells are designed, constructed and operated properly in accordance with the approval of federal, state and local authorities, underground injection is an effective and environmentally safe method to dispose of approved liquids.
OBTAINING A SOIL SAMPLE
We use a special 35-foot auger to extract the soil from the bottom to examine in the lab. Soil sampling is very critical because if you misdiagnose and claim that the levels of contamination are low or non-contaminated it could result in a big financial detriment in the form of wrong uses of a site or even worse affecting people working on site and ongoing environmental pollution.
If you overestimate or claim there is a high level of pollution this can also be detrimental to the development of your site. The remediation cost can escalate quickly when it's not necessary, or you could be advised to leave the site due to high levels of pollution in the soil that may be hazardous to your health.
We are honest, responsive and professional in all our testing. We will explain everything and keep you informed throughout the whole process. We believe in communication, satisfaction and diligence. We hold ourselves to a higher standard and we pride ourselves in delivering on every job.
CONTAMINATED SOIL DISPOSAL
Suspected sites are investigated (Preliminary Site Assessment) to determine if any contamination of waste is present and is significant to public health or to the environment. Once a site is deemed to require remediation it is then prioritized based on the degree of impact to human health and the surrounding environment.
The agencies range from DEC, EPA, NCDOH and SCDOH. These agencies are then notified based on the degree and type of contamination that are present. The appropriate agencies are responsible for overseeing all aspects of site remediation from inception to completion.
All activities of these sites are closely monitored by these agencies. They are in place to protect and aggressively enforce the proper standards for a site to be deemed "cleaned up".
The responsible party incurs all costs associated with the remediation clean up efforts of their site.
Proper disposal of all waste is strictly monitored and enforced. Transportation of waste to an approved disposal facility is based on the type of contamination.
COMMERCIAL / INDUSTRIAL LIQUID WASTE MANAGEMENT
Providing facility managers with recommended and cost efficient solutions to better address liquid waste management. Helping facility managers make environmentally responsible decisions while working in partnership with state and local regulators.
Evaluating industrial waste processes in order to determine the waste characterization for acceptable approved disposal facility. All industrial waste that is generated will have the appropriate documentation for the disposal facility.
Industrial waste liquids are stored either in drums or holding tanks and are removed with liquid vacuum trucks. The volume of waste removed varies for industrial facilities. The capacity of the liquid vacuum trucks vary from 3,500 gallons to trailers containing 8,000 gallons.
All work performed and waste disposal are handled following strict Local, State and Federal regulations. All documentations are provided from cradle to grave from customers site to an approved disposal facility.
CLEANING OUT SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT
We do all scopes of work from cleaning out a sewage treatment plant all the way to obtaining a soil sample. Environmental Angels owns a custom vactor truck allowing it the ability to take on such jobs to clean out a whole plant.
Vactor introduced the first combination sewer cleaner to combine water jetting and vacuuming action, which resulted in the fastest, most thorough cleaning job possible. In the same year the Vactor Jet Rodder Water Pump was introduced, the only pump specifically designed for cleaning sewers.
Hydro excavation is the safe and productive non-destructive excavation method. Unlike mechanical excavation, there is little chance of damage when water is used to loosen the soil, significantly reducing the safety and financial risks associated with utility or pipe line strikes.
By using this method of excavation it allows us to deliver on time and with confidence to our clients knowing that the process is safe and proven.
