Risk Assessment And Remediation Grease Manufacturing Plant, Pennsylvania

Regulatory Agency: Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP)
Contaminants: Petroleum Hydrocarbons
Remediation: Engineering Control and Limited Soil Excavation and Offsite Disposal
Scope: Lump Sum Remediation to Closure: Investigate, Investigate, Design/Build

Project Summary
  • Careful evaluation of site characterization data highlighted the potential benefits of conducting a site-specific risk assessment.
  • Specific risk assessment protocols and procedures were chosen that exceeded the ACT 2 requirements to add technical weight to the findings.
  • Requirements for active remediation were eliminated and PADEP closed the case.
  • ESI was able to share project efficiencies with the client resulting in a 50 percent rebate of the approved project cost.

Project work included performing a proper site characterization and installing engineering controls.

With effective site characterization, proper design and implementation of engineering controls, and knowledge of the ACT 2 process, ESI utilized the risk-based, site-specific remedial endpoints to reduce the client’s expenditures associated with the installation of a permanent remediation system, long-term system operation, and post- closure monitoring.
