Old Dump Cleanup

9-acre vacant old dumpsite
Client: Owner


Proposed residential redevelopment


Managed the investigation and cleanup of an old dump, beginning with a Phase I assessment and concluding with cleanup and a No Further Action agreement for unrestricted land use from the MPCA VIC program. Working for the owner/seller, cleanup was completed for about 20% of the cost estimated by the prospective buyer’s consultant.

Cleanup included removal of soils impacted by mercury, semi-volatile organic compounds, and solid waste. Effective segregation of wastes during excavation and negotiation with four separate disposal facilities resulted in reduced waste volumes and costs for transportation and disposal fees. Documentation during cleanup resulted in reductions to invoiced costs by the contractor.
