EPA Region 4 announced the award of a contract to KEMRON Environmental Services, Inc. for the installation of 56 acres of impermeable cover on the East Gypsum Stack (EGS) Complex at the former Mississippi Phosphate Corporation (MPC) fertilizer manufacturing plant in Pascagoula, MS. This firm fixed price contract was awarded under an unrestricted acquisition by Region 4. The liner system consists of 50-Mil Structured Geomembrane covered with a Tufted Geotextile Cover (artificial turf). KEMRON is teaming with COMANCO, Inc, a national leader in landfill cover installation, on this project. Watershed Geo, Inc. will supply the Tufted Geotextile Cover, an innovative product providing upfront and long-term cost savings to EPA and the State of Mississippi.
KEMRON has been supporting EPA at the MPC Superfund Site since February of 2017; first with water treatment services and later with earthwork to prepare the EGS for cover installation. Phase 1A, the subject of this contract, is the first step in a multi-step process to completely close and cover the EGS and associated wastewater ponds.
