Dig-Haul Completedphoto 3_ParcelD-TPH-Cleanup_5.30.14

If anyone noticed, V3’s remediation crew was on-site last Friday, 05/30 digging TPH-impacted soil at 7:00 in the morning. Our consultants informed that the long-awaited removal and disposal went very well. The cleanup went pretty fast, still Aaron Carpenter, our Brownfields Coordinator was able to capture a few good shots of the work-in-progress. 
About 300 tons of total volume of soil was removed and visually, the dig looked good. V3 collected the verification samples and sent them to lab for expedited analysis. Results of the verification samples came in on 06/04/14……. And data results are below the Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) goal. RW Collins will backfill the excavated area with clean fill material, today 06/05/14.
V3 will provide a written summary of their findings sometime next week, so we’ll provide more information as it becomes available.

Next Steps

V3 is waiting on the driller to schedule the installation of the monitoring well, likely for the week of 06/09/14.
V3 has already started the draft Remedial Action Cleanup Report (RACR) to document the final results. The draft will be completed before the end of June. We anticipate that the report will be submitted to IEPA for approval before mid-July. The City has plans to develop this property into future green openspace and naturalized stormwater management area.

V3 has confirmed that field remediation activities  will begin on Friday, May 30. The work to be performed is mostly one field day for the excavation & haul-off and to collect verification soil samples, followed by 1-2 days for lab analysis. If results indicate that additional dig/haul is needed, the process will be repeated. The cleanup is expected to be completed within 4-5 days.

NE Park Cleanup: April 2014 Updates

9 May

Parcel D TPH-Cleanup

  • Schedule Update: V3 has confirmed that the remediation is rescheduled for 05/30/14  05/16/14 has been pushed to the week of May 19, due to the heavy rain. Unfortunately, the ground has become too soaked to do the dig during the past couple of weeks.
  • Early in April, field crew from V3 Co. began mobilization activities to prepare the site for excavation. V3 already marked-up the area and was confirmed by the subcontractor. The proposed remediation area measures approximately 30’ by 30’ with the approximate depth interval of 10’-15’ below the ground surface.
  • In response to the RFP/Q for Remediation Subcontractor, our consultant received proposals from 4 different environmental companies. RW Collins has been selected for the TPH-Cleanup work. They are a WBE-certified business (…..USEPA grant agreement requires the City to make good faith efforts to meet fair share goals and contract with disadvantaged, women-owned & minority-owned businesses when possible. WBE goal is 12%) and their cost estimate for work was considerably low.

Site-wide Cleanup Planning

In response to IEPA comments on ROR/RAP, Weaver Boos, City’s environmental consultant has finished the draft of Supplemental Remedial Investigations Workplan. After a review with the staff, the plan is anticipated to be submitted to IEPA in mid-May. It is a comprehensive document that includes all the parcels within the NE Park site and would help the City further remediation/construction efforts.
