  • Multiparameter Sonde Used in Combined-Remedy Approach Saves $200,000 in Potential Costs

    A former dry-cleaning site in the Pacific Northwest Ultra Custom Care Cleaners, was found to be contaminated with PCE (perchloroethylene). According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), PCE was widely used in the dry cleaning of fabrics since the 1940s. PCE is one of the most frequently detected VOCs (volatile organic carbons) in groundwater at a national scale (Moran 2004). PCE is highly ...
