Major Project Tasks:    

  • Excavation and disposal of MGP contaminated soils performed under temporary enclosure structures
  • Excavation depths up to 30’ below existing grade
  • Design and installation of two watertight sheet pilling structures
  • Vibration monitoring during sheet pile installations due to close proximity of residential dwellings

  • Voluntary engagement of a third party site safety officer that aided in awareness and enforcement of Abscope’s site specific HASP

Major Project Contaminants:

  • Coal Tar
  • VOCs
  • SVOCs

Significant Project Obstacles:

  • Located within an active residential area, thus dust control and vibration monitoring were critical facets
  • Performing 30’ excavations within the confines of a temporary arched structure
  • Constant dewatering and treatment of prolific construction groundwater
  • Challenging watertight sheet-pile installation
