XCG received notification of Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) acknowledgment another successful filing of a Record of Site Condition in January, 2016. This MOECC acknowledgement was the final step of a project that began in early 2012.
XCG was retained by the legal counsel for the property owner to complete indoor air sampling in residential basements in two private homes. This work, which was completed in conjunction with groundwater and soil vapour sampling, was ordered by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC).
In December of 2015, XCG was retained by a seller to provide environmental consulting services during a sale of a hotel located in Woodstock, Ontario. Site investigations completed by the purchaser’s consultant identified a localised presence of chloride, trichloroethylene (TCE) as well as benzene, toluene, and ethylbenzene (BTE) in groundwater at concentrations that were above the generic MOECC Table 2 criteria published in a document entitled “Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act,” dated April 15, 2011 (MOECC Standards).
