Locus Technologies awarded groundwater implementation at three Philips Semiconductors sites in Silicon Valley, CA

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., 7 July 1999 — Locus Technologies (Locus) today announced that they were awarded a contract for groundwater remediation and operation and maintenance services at three Philips Semiconductors sites in Silicon Valley, CA.

The three sites include Arques (on-site and off-site), Evelyn, and Kifer. Each site has a California Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) Cleanup and Abatement Order and a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Locus’s scope of work includes management of the groundwater program, operation, maintenance, monitoring, and optimization of extraction and treatment systems, information management, automation, permitting, groundwater elevation monitoring and sampling, and regulatory agency reporting.

“This is obviously an important win for us,” said Neno Duplancic, President and CEO of Locus Technologies. “It demonstrates our competitiveness and ability to provide Philips Semiconductors with a single source for managing their groundwater programs in the Silicon Valley. We are happy that our approach to groundwater operation and maintenance, VOC experience in the Silicon Valley, and Internet-based automation solutions will help lower the overall cost of the Philips Semiconductors groundwater program.” With this award, Locus reinforces its position as the largest groundwater consultant and remediation company in the Silicon Valley.

Project execution will come primarily from Locus Technologies’ office in Mountain View, California. The term of the contract is one year with two optional renewal years. The project started in June 1999.
