Monitoring of groundwater quality of petrol storage stations

project outline

Vopak operates three petrol storage stations in Quebec (Quebec City, Montreal East, and Montreal). These stations are used for the transfer and storage of petrol and derivative products and are equipped with high capacity storage facilities.

The mandate awarded to Groupe Alphard comprised the regular monitoring of groundwater quality at each site. Dozens of sampling wells were monitoring across 3 sampling campaigns in autumn 2017 and spring, summer and autumn 2018.
