Bordering the Bay: Remediation Project Near Sensitive Environment


Gulf Coast


Oil & Gas


Remediate a former waste oil site located on a shoreline

A National Priorities List Superfund Site required remediation and geotechnical construction services to remove contaminants impacting its 150 acres. The former waste oil recovery facility site included numerous above-ground storage tanks, two API separators, a large elevated sludge impoundment and a small cemetery. Bordered by a bay, the location is also near a closed waste disposal site and city landfill, and undeveloped marsh and wetlands.

ENTACT considered project scale, scope and the proximity to sensitive environments when developing a successful solution to this client challenge. Implementing a phased approach allowed us to continue construction activities during design approvals, reducing our overall timeline.

ENTACT Solution

In addition to our phased approach, ENTACT sequenced field activities so that critical items could be performed during solidification, consolidation and backfilling for schedule efficiency. Teamwork and seasoned field expertise made this successful solution possible.
