Remedial Action Design/Implementation/Operation, IR Site 24, NBVC, Pt. Mugu, CAIn the course of reducing a 23-acre landfill footprint by consolidating solid waste materials and constructing a new 13-acre landfill cap, OTIE protected endangered species and restored 3.5 acres of sensitive tidal wetlands that provided the Naval Base Ventura County “wetland banking program” with credit offsets.
In addition to wetland restoration, OTIE applied multiple sustainable practices. OTIE implemented LEED Construction Standards to procure local recycled base aggregate and clean fill soil, significantly reducing truck hauling distances and the associated greenhouse gas emissions by 172,800 pounds while saving an estimated $150K in material costs. OTIE also installed solar parking lot lighting and composted 2,720 tons of greenwaste for re-use onsite.
