Mosites Construction Company
Warrendale, PA – 2002 – $155,000
Scope of Work:
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission constructed a new interchange at Warrendale (Milepost #31). An abandoned gasoline station built in the 1950s had occupied part of the construction site. The gas station’s ten gasoline and diesel tanks, ranging from 3,000 to 10,000 gallons capacity, had leaked fuel into the soil. Cleanup was required prior to the beginning of new construction.
Neumeyer Environmental excavated 3,000 tons of contaminated soil and transported it to a thermal processing facility where it was cleaned for recycling for use as roadway subbase on the project. Neumeyer Environmental removed and disposed of 100 tons of hazardous soil, 1,000 gallons of contaminated liquids, and the remnants of the underground fuel system. We also decontaminated and disposed of the old fuel tanks.
Our ability to recycle the contaminated soil substantially reduced our client’s disposal costs. The construction project proceeded on clean land. This project was completed on-schedule and on-budget.
