Dry-Cleaning Sites: Important Considerations for Environmental Due Diligence and Remediation
Dry cleaners typically use chemical solvents to clean clothes and other fabrics that, if spilled or discharged, can contaminate soil and water. Dry-cleaning processes commonly use perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE). Because these solvents easily permeate and migrate through concrete or asphalt parking lots, they can impact a site’s soil and groundwater and create onsite vapor issues. PCE and TCE also are commonly identified as recognized environmental conditions (RECs) during environmental site assessments at dry-cleaning sites. Because many commercial properties and retail sites contain current and former dry cleaners, related issues arise in real estate transactions involving these sites, presenting unique environmental due diligence and remediation implications.

Please join Michael F. Marcon, PG, CAPM, of InControl Technologies, for a fascinating and informative discussion about dry cleaning related to environmental due diligence and assessment.

This 60-minute webinar will cover:

• An overview of the dry-cleaning industry and the different types of facilities
• Common issues for environmental due diligence at dry-cleaning sites
• Sources of contamination and waste issues associated with dry cleaners
• Investigation and remedial design/response action considerations for dry-cleaning sites
• Regulatory considerations and the availability of cleanup funds or other incentives through state dry-cleaning programs.
• Emerging issues at dry-cleaning sites include PFAS
