Brownfields Redevelopment – Precious Metals Recovery Facility

The Challenge:

Evaluate soil and groundwater conditions underlying a property that is considered a high risk of soil impact by metals based on past land use. Groundwater exists in fractured bedrock.

Our Solution:

EnviroSouth rapidly completed assessment activities to meet developer deadlines. The detection of an elevated metals concentration in one groundwater sample required EnviroSouth to elicit a quick response from State environmental regulators who agreed with our technical evidence that the metals were likely attributable to naturally occurring conditions.

What's Unique:

Our relationship of trust and mutual respect with State environmental regulators facilitated a timely outcome that allowed the property purchase to be completed on schedule.
