Challenge

Remediate a former chemical complex for mixed-use redevelopment

A 2,200-acre former chemical complex featured a number of environmental conditions that delayed the site’s redevelopment. In addition to the site’s large size, difficult field conditions challenged project objectives and demanded a partner with innovative solutions.

ENTACT performed remedial activities over a multi-year timeline, starting by developing a solution to reduce moisture levels in site ponds, trench waste and other site excavations.

ENTACT Solution

ENTACT drew upon its internal technical and treatability skills to develop a remedial solution that would reduce the site’s high moisture levels to target objectives. This process included geotechnical evaluations, soil mixing, free-draining, dewatering and reagent evaluations of source materials. To maintain an efficient schedule, we performed critical items concurrently throughout our phased, multi-year site approach.
