Our Role
Environmental Remediation.

  • Successful cleanup of former rail yard results in removal from EPA list.
A creosote wood-treating plant at a former rail yard had been placed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Priorities List, a list of hazardous waste sites that are eligible for remedial action. A streamlined remedial investigation, human health and ecological risk assessments, and a focused feasibility study revealed areas of contamination, which triggered the implementation of cleanup criteria and subsequent removal from the list.

What We Did

Gannett Fleming led the investigation, assessments, and studies, and assisted the EPA with community relations. A detailed work plan was prepared that addressed soil, sediment, surface water, groundwater, and potable wells. A residential potable well survey also was completed within a one-mile radius of the property. Sediment and soil sampling was completed, and field test kits obtained from the EPA defined the areas of concern.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive human health and ecological risk assessments were prepared, and favorable risk-based cleanup criteria were negotiated for the site
  • Sediment and soil samples determined areas of concern.
