Challenge

Remediate a PCB-impacted community containing more than 600 residences, a school and a park

The area surrounding an industrial facility contained polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Removal was critical since much of the area included residential and community spaces.

ENTACT used its residential remediation expertise to develop a multi-year solution that sensitively served the busy neighborhood, including more than 600 properties and a nearby school and park.

ENTACT Solution

ENTACT developed a field approach that prioritized the safety of the community, communication with the impacted neighbors, and an efficient schedule. To meet regulatory requirements, impacted material needed to be transported to an off-site facility or placed in an on-site depository constructed on the industrial site. ENTACT balanced the concerns of multiple stakeholder groups and delivered quality work safely, on time and on budget.

The Results

residential home job site
ENTACT’s work has always been good and their health and safety program is impeccable. This year was by far the smoothest that community relations have been, in my history. ENTACT’s work, foresight, planning and patience made an always unpleasant situation into the best possible.
ENTACT provided outstanding support and coordination between the local home and business owners, regulators and other contractors. The manner in which ENTACT performed their tasks assisted my company in building up our credibility in the community. Each residential property was excavated and restored with extreme care and to a better condition than prior to remediation. I highly recommend ENTACT for residential remediation projects. They have a firm understanding of the needs of their client as well as the needs of the residents.
