Remediation and Restoration (Habitat): Nascolite Superfund Site, NJ

Remedial Action and Site Restoration, Nascolite Superfund Site, NJ
Nascolite Superfund Site, NJOTIE was awarded a performance-based TO under a USACE Kansas City Pre-Placed Remedial Action Contract, in coordination with USACE Philadelphia District, to remediate the 15.5-acre Nascolite Superfund site. The site was the former location of a plant that reclaimed scrap and manufactured polymethyl methacrylate (MMA) plastic sheeting. The activities on the site caused extensive soil and groundwater contamination. Remediation objectives included removal and disposal of over 67,000 tons of soil, installation of shoring to protect a rail line while limiting inflow of groundwater, dewatering to allow excavation below the water table, backfilling, and restoration of a wetland. The project was incrementally funded, requiring strict project controls including daily cost tracking and budget forecasts to avoid unnecessary demobilizations and, due to funding constraints, was required to be completed by the end of the fiscal year.
OTIE was first tasked to perform additional investigation and provide further delineation of soil contamination at the site required for the upcoming removal of contaminated soils and debris. OTIE was then awarded the removal action as a follow-on task order. The initial activities/tasks performed included site clearing, geophysical surveying, location surveying, concrete coring, installation of soil borings, geotechnical and environmental soil sampling, delineation of soil contamination, and reporting of the overall investigative results.
