QM Environmental performed a high profile, $65 million remediation project for the Ministry of the Environment to remove and destroy 36,000 cubic meters of PCB-contaminated soil originating from the Pottersburg Creek watershed and adjacent industrial properties. QM Environmental carefully enclosed each of the four lined storage vaults at the landfill-style soil storage site with a structure to contain contamination during open excavation, and transported soil to Bennett Environmental's facility for complete destruction. QM Environmental executed a complete Phase 2 with a Record of Site Condition.

Landfill Remediation and Closure, Parris Island, USA

In response to an Installation Restoration Program mandate to clean up military bases, ECC remediated a former 10-acre landfill and adjacent marsh at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot. The site was contaminated with industrial wastes, pesticides, POLs, PCBs, solvents, ordnance compounds, metals, paint thinners, diesel fuels, kerosene, and methyl chlorides as a result of incineration activities. ECC characterized, remediated, and capped the landfill, and restored marshlands to their native condition.

Award-Winning FUSRAP Closure in a Residential Area

ECC executed a $53 million, award-winning hazardous, toxic, radioactive waste cradle-to-grave remediation project at the Wayne Interim Storage Site, a FUSRAP Superfund site located in a highly developed suburb of New York City. Working with our clients and end users, ECC developed closure protocols to achieve the project's cleanup milestones. ECC executed site characterization and investigation, operations and maintenance of 20 million gallons of radiologically contaminated wastewater, the removal of 57,342 cubic meters of radiologically contaminated soil, emergency preparedness, preparation of a preliminary close out report, and site restoration. Despite the highly charged political environment, ECC achieved our client's goals while exceeding the community's expectations and regulatory requirements.
