Groundwater at an industrial site in Texas is impacted with Chlorinated Volatile Organic Carbon’s
(CVOCs), primarily PCE and TCE, from historical waste disposal. The topography at the site slopes
steeply towards a small channel where the groundwater discharges. Depth to groundwater ranges from
approximately 20 ft bgs at the source area to 1 ft bgs close to the channel.
