Brayman Construction Corporation
Erie, PA – 2002-2003 – $740,000

Scope of Work:
A new highway construction project required construction of a bridge over an active main line railroad and a scrap metal processing facility. The soil at the site contained elevated levels of benzene, pesticides, and lead that required special management.

Neumeyer Environmental excavated 50,000 tons of contaminated soil for off-site disposal. We collected 220,000 gallons of contaminated groundwater and treated it on-site to reduce the contamination to levels acceptable for discharge to a publicly-owned treatment works (POTW). Neumeyer Environmental installed a protective barrier to protect workers from exposure.

Neumeyer Environmental controlled worker exposures through a variety of engineering controls so that the crews could work with only limited personal protective clothing. Eliminating this requirement and treating the contaminated groundwater on-site saved the client substantial operating and disposal costs.
