Civil Engineering Fieldtrip

IMG_2931 (3)Dr. L. Yu Lin and Mr. Gene McGinnis (Civil and Environmental Engineering Department) took a group of Civil Engineering students on a field trip sponsored by EnSafe and the Department of Environment and Conservation, State of Tennessee. The site, located in Midtown Memphis, was contaminated by a leaking underground storage tank. The system they are using to clean-up the groundwater (40Hp CAS) can treat 6000 gal/day. It was estimated it would take 2-5 years of operation to complete the clean-up.
