Black Lake Grocery groundwater monitoring

We monitor groundwater for legacy  petroleum hydrocarbons at the Black Lake Grocery site. We provide groundwater data so that the Toxics Cleanup Program may evaluate the effectiveness of a treatment wall in remediating petroleum-contaminated groundwater before it enters Black Lake.

Remediating contaminated groundwater

Study area extent beside Black Lake in Thurston County, WA.

Black Lake Grocery is an active gas station and convenience store located on the northwest shore of Black Lake in Thurston County, Washington. Groundwater samples will be collected every 18 months from select wells for total petroleum hydrocarbons as gasoline (TPH-G), and benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene (BTEX). The groundwater data will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the installed treatment wall to remediate the petroleum-contaminated groundwater before it reaches Black Lake.
