Remediation

In 1982, an Illinois Central Gulf Railroad Company (ICG) train derailed along U.S. Highway 190 in Livingston, LA resulting in damage to several railcars and the release of hazardous materials at the site, including tetrachloroethene (also known as perchloroethylene or PCE). After 30 years of treatment, concern developed that site surveillance funds made available by ICG would be depleted before the remedial goals were reached. SourceKill was selected to destroy the residual PCE.
