Erie, PA – 2003-2004 – $1,600,000
Scope of Work:
PENNDOT encountered soil contaminated with heavy metals and industrial herbicides in the process of constructing a four-lane road connecting Interstate 90 and Interstate 79 in Erie, Pennsylvania. The contaminated soil was located within the footprint of the proposed 6 acre storm water retention basin required for the project.
Neumeyer Environmental removed 22,000 tons of soil from the site. We installed a barrier of compacted limestone across the base of the excavation overlain with plastic sheeting. This barrier system allowed construction of the retention basin to continue in an uncontaminated environment.
Neumeyer Environmental provided 40-hour HAZWOPER training for the project personnel to allow specialty crews, such as utillity and carpentry crews, to continue with the highway construction.
