Freeport-McMoRan

Satralloy Facility
Steubenville, OH – 2013 -2014 – $10,000,000.00

Scope of Work:
Neumeyer Environmental Services (NES) performed site waste management, a variety of remediation, demolition, and site work activities, such as but not limited to clear and grubbing, landscaping, construction, electrical installation, etc. at the Satralloy site, a former chromium processing facility near Steubenville, Ohio. The facility was dilapidated after 40 years of abandonment and illegal use and scrapping of metal from inside the buildings.

Site Work:
Neumeyer rebuilt site access roads, laydown areas, and installed a rail spur to facilitate the mobilization and demobilization of heavy equipment that road access could not support. NES performed clearing and grubbing to provide access to work areas and install/maintain erosion and sedimentation controls.

  • Safety
    • Initially, Neumeyer performed building inspections in the two large mill buildings (one 180,000 SqFt and one at 98,000 SqFt) due to the decay of structural materials and illegal scrapping of metal building materials during the decades of abandonment. NES inspected all walkways and work areas, which were repaired or permanently barricaded.
  • Waste Management
    • Removal of Heavy Metal Containing Dust
    • NES removed all heavy metal containing dust from inside the buildings (approximately 4,000 Cubic Yards), which ranged from several inches to several feet of accumulation in different areas of the buildings. Bulk removal of dust on the floors was performed, as well as vacuuming of dust from rafters and other structural components from aerial lifts.
    • To ensure worker safety, NES implemented a strict personal protective equipment (PPE) and decontamination program. Workers performed tasks in multiple layers of protective clothing and full-face air purifying respirators. Prior to all breaks and leaving the site at the end of shifts, workers underwent personal decontamination to protect themselves and their families from exposure to heavy metals. NES also performed extensive personal and area air monitoring to ensure workers were not exposed to unsafe levels of metals, as well as implementing a medical monitoring program involving physicals and bloodwork monitoring levels of heavy metals in workers to ensure they were not exposed during the work.
  • Demolitions
    • NES demolished a number of structures on the site, including a garage, smokestack, and water treatment plant. We also performed abatement of all asbestos containing materials in these structures prior to demolition, as well as in the buildings that were cleaned and left intact.
  • Chemical Management
    • NES located, collected, sorted, and disposed of a variety of hazardous chemicals on the site, including petroleum products, mercury, and PCB containing transformers.

Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) 

Johnstown, PA – 2016-2017  – $14,124,000.00

Scope of Work:
Neumeyer Environmental Services (NES) performed the Waste Management to include a wide variety of site work and environmental remediation tasks at a PADEP designated Act 2 site that had been the site of large scale tank farms, and more recently, a demolition and salvage yard.

Site Work:

To facilitate the work to be performed, NES improved and built site access and haul roads, installed concrete entrances to PennDOT’s road, mobilized a trailer complex, and installed laydown and parking areas.

    • Waste Management
      • Contaminated Soil and Buried Debris Disposal.
      • NES excavated over 200,000 tons of soil and buried debris from the site, coordinating with several trucking companies and four landfills to ensure timely and proper landfill disposal of the materials.
      • Hazardous Material, Chemical, and Water Inventory and Management:
      • NES inventoried and collected large quantities of chemicals from around the site, in addition to pumping product and liquid from storage tanks, piping, and excavations. All wastes were sampled, profiled, and properly disposed of at a number of licensed facilities.
    • Asbestos
      • NES performed asbestos abatement in several structures and mobile homes on the site.
      • Well Closure
      • NES closed 27 monitoring wells and one drinking water well on the site.
    • Storage Tank Closures
      • NES closed, removed, cleaned, and disposed of 10 underground storage tanks and 4 aboveground storage tanks.
    • Pipe Closures
      • NES drained over 10,000 linear feet of pipe remaining from the tank farms that previously were in place at the site. Approximately 7,000 feet of pipe was excavated, cut, and removed, and approximately 3,000 feet was filled with grout and closed in place because it ran thru a wetland.
    • Demolitions
      • NES demolished four buildings, and several mobile homes and trailers.

American Textile Company

Duquesne, PA – 2015-2018 – $ 3,206,000.00

Scope of Work:
Neumeyer Environmental provided excavation, backfill, and structural services to American Textile Company in Duquesne, PA. The industrial park was built on top of a slag that has expanded over time as water has seeped into it, causing the building supporting columns and floor in the factory to raise and become uneven. NES mitigated this by excavating all slag from underneath two sections of the factory and backfilling with stone.

NES installed a large containment around the entire work areas inside the factory to protect the factory workers and the manufacturing processes. We then installed temporary structural supports, removed the floor slabs, and excavated all slag out from underneath each area, which was as deep as 30 feet in areas.

Upon completion of excavation, NES backfilled the excavations with stone, compacting it to meet building design standards and ensuring its stability for the future. We completed the work by re-installing permanent support beams and replacing the floor slabs. NES performed this work in two phases in different areas of the plant to accommodate the factory’s production.

Throughout the work, NES performed dust and noise monitoring inside of the work area as well as outside of the work area in the factory to ensure both NES and American Textile workers were not exposed to hazardous levels of either.

I-79 and SR-22 Missing Ramps

Balfour Beatty Infrastructure
Robinson Township, PA – 2005-2008 – $525,000

Scope of Work:
PennDOT was adding ramps to the major interchange that had not been included during the initial road construction. Neumeyer Environmental was contracted to perform several activities in support of this project including management of acid mine drainage, noise monitoring, and to provide miscellaneous environmental support.

It was anticipated based on the project design that mine seals would need to be breached as part of the construction. Discharge of the acid mine drainage was expected when this breach occurred that could affect the local environment and water courses. Neumeyer Environmental evaluated the site characteristics and installed a pump and treat system to manage the drainage. The system included a 450 linear foot ditch that included a dispersion system with a neutralizing agent to treat the drainage.

Neumeyer Environmental also performed noise monitoring during the non-standard work hour activities. The project was bounded by several residential neighborhoods that were subject to disturbance by the construction activities. Neumeyer Environmental established baseline noise levels and performed bi-weekly monitoring to ensure noise levels were maintained within acceptable limits.

Waltz Mill Tools and Equipment Decommissioning

Westinghouse Electric Corporation
Madison, PA – 1999 – $500,000

Scope of Work:
Approximately 2,500 tons of obsolete tools and equipment used in service and repair of commercial nuclear power generation facilities required disposal.

Neumeyer Environmental segregated, sized, and packaged materials for off-site treatment and processing. We dismantled contaminated components and equipment, and segregated waste materials (metals, wood, plastics, etc.). Neumeyer Environmental shredded the materials to reduce shipping and disposal costs.

Valuable warehouse space was cleared of obsolete equipment. Removal of contaminated items from the warehouse reduced background radiation within the building.
