KEMRON Environmental Services, Inc. is under contract with Auburn University to assist with the remediation of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) impacted soils on a 10-acre tract of land on the Campus. A Corrective Measures Implementation Plan (CMIP) was prepared which is the corrective measures strategy for soil remediation. The CMIP provides a comprehensive account of past activities, a screening evaluation of remedial technology alternatives, a description of the recommended corrective measure, and details regarding the implementation and schedule of the remedy at the Site in compliance with Auburn’s RCRA Permit. After receiving approval from Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM), KEMRON prepared a detailed corrective measure design for the excavation and removal of 2,200 cubic yards of Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) PCB hazardous waste soils, 17,000 cubic yards of non-hazardous waste and offsite disposal at landfills permitted for hazardous waste and non-hazardous waste disposal. KEMRON is currently performing construction oversight of this $4 million remediation project that will be the future home of a new chiller plant for the Campus.
KEMRON was recently awarded a contract with EPA Region 4 at the former Mississippi Phosphate Corporation (MPC) fertilizer manufacturing plant in Pascagoula, MS. The scope for this contract is to prepare 50 acres on the northeast slope (known as Phase 1B) of the East Gypsum Stack (EGS) Complex for liner installation. Currently, KEMRON is installing liner on the west slope (Phase 1A) under a separate contract with EPA. This firm fixed price contract was awarded under an unrestricted acquisition by Region 4. The scope includes 313,800 cubic yards of total earthwork.
KEMRON has been supporting EPA at the MPC Superfund Site since February of 2017; first with water treatment services that will continue throughout the EGS closure process and later with preparation and cover installation of the Phase 1A portion of the EGS. This contract represents the second step in a multi-step process to completely close and cover the EGS and associated wastewater ponds.
KEMRON’s West Virginia office was recently awarded a contract through the USACE Baltimore District for underground storage tank (UST) removal and soil excavation at Fort McNair in Washington DC. Specifically, the scope includes: preparation of site plans to include the Project Management Plan, Uniform Federal Policy Quality Control Plan and Accident Prevention Plan; cleaning and removal of one 1000-gallon capacity UST; excavation of approximately 10 cubic yards of contaminated soil exceeding the DOEE risk-based screening levels; site restoration and recapping of the area with asphalt; and the preparation of at UST Closure Assessment Report.
