A hazard assessment was performed prior to the building demolition and all asbestos, mercury, and PCB materials were abated and disposed of appropriately.
RECON was contracted to perform several tasks at a former refinery. The original scope included the removal or abandonment of the remaining surface and subsurface structures, surface grading, and construction of a large stormwater basin. Upon mobilization, RECON:
- Performed a hazard assessment prior to building demolition and abated and disposed of all asbestos, mercury, and PCB materials appropriately.
- Removed the existing storm sewer, process sewer, fire protection piping, three underground storage tanks, and numerous power poles upon mobilizing.
- Demolished and excavated over 20,000 tons of reinforced concrete from 30+ acre site using hydraulic hammers, excavators, and off-road trucks.
- Re-graded site to establish design guides and featured necessary to manage stormwater runoff for long-term soil stability to provide a suitable base for land farming of petroleum contaminated soils.
- Constructed an 800-linear foot by 110-linear foot stormwater basin to manage a stormwater and sediment management control basin and capture light non-aqueous phase liquids from the petroleum impacted soils.
