Home Products Industrial Site Waste Lagoons Remediation, Excavation and Restoration
FTCH conducted a multiphased RCRA facility investigation for this large manufacturer of consumer and household products. The investigation revealed three former wastewater lagoons had been impacted with PCBs, VOCs, and metals. The lagoons were closed in the 1970s. FTCH designed and provided engineering construction services to implement the remediation activities, which included in situ pretreatment of VOCs, and soil excavation and disposal. Using native vegetation, FTCH designed a scenic wetland for the 3-acre excavated area. The wetland construction included several ecosystems (deep water, emergent, scrub-shrub, forested), pathways, boardwalks, and wildlife viewing decks.
