Clinton, PA – 2004-2005 – $1,400,000
Scope of Work:
New roadway construction required crossing an abandoned landfill that had operated for fifty years, unpermitted and unregulated, in a former strip mine pit. The landfill contained both municipal and industrial wastes. The industrial waste contained heavy metals and chemical solvents.
Neumeyer Environmental excavated 300,000 cubic yards of soil and segregated it by contaminant concentration. We recycled the uncontaminated soil as roadbase material to be used on-site. We placed the minimally contaminated soil in an on-site containment cell that PA Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) permitted specifically for the project. Neumeyer Environmental profiled the remaining soil as either residual or hazardous waste and transported it to appropriate disposal facilities.
By segregating the soils, we were able to retain on-site and reuse 270,000 of the 300,000 cubic yards originally excavated, saving millions of dollars in transportation and disposal costs.
