H2M’s Environmental team in the Parsippany, NJ office recently completed a remediation project.
In 2004, Pennsylvania DEP and US EPA worked together to create the “One Cleanup Program,” which allows sites remediated under Pennsylvania’s Act 2 Land Recycling Program to also satisfy the requirements for remediation under three federal laws: RCRA, CERCLA, and TSCA. H2M assisted a Pennsylvania manufacturer in navigating the closure of a RCRA-permitted waste neutralization building where soil and groundwater had been impacted by facility operations. H2M completed the required remedial investigation for soil, groundwater and vapor intrusion following prior remediation of the RCRA-permitted facility. Through risk assessment and groundwater fate and transport modeling, H2M demonstrated that the remediation was complete and that the application of an Environmental Covenant (deed notice and groundwater use restriction) was sufficient to protect human health and the environment from residual impacts. PADEP and US EPA concurred and no further remediation was required.
Great job by H2Mers: Sonya Ward, David Marsden, and Jason Potosnak.
