RECON was selected to lead the first design-build approach to a Superfund cleanup. There were multiple distinct design and construction stages included during the cleanup.

Aerial of site
  • Treated wastes that included arsenic and lead, radioactive and hazardous slag, acidic sludges, various spent processing chemicals and asbestos-containing material
  • Demolished 15 structures, including a 250-foot concrete stack
  • Treated over 16,000,0000 gallons of hazardous wastewater from a 4-acre pond
  • Constructed a soil bentonite slurry wall and installed an evapotranspiration barrier to promote the removal of contaminants from groundwater
  • Consolidated radioactive slag and placed and capped in a low-level radioactive disposal cell
  • Placed a clay cover over 86 acres
  • Saved EPA $9,000,000 and reduced schedule by seven months with our unique sequencing approach
