For this federal project, CAPE implemented highly effective contaminant removal solutions at various site locations to protect area biodiversity and ecology.
Project 1 involved restoration of the former release of 7,500 gallons of diesel fuel from an underground storage tank. With the goal of protecting local waterways and biodiversity, CAPE injected micron-scale activated carbon into saturated soil to serve as a permeable barrier. This barrier will protect ecological receptors from petroleum migrating toward the bay.
Project 2 included Time Critical Removal Action (TCRA) at a 5.5 acre vacant site where municipal and industrial wastes were buried and creating elevated levels of site contaminants. Our team at CAPE designed a program to dispose of 5,700 cubic yards of contaminated soil and debris through the installation of stormwater erosion controls and a temporary irrigation system for revegetation and hydroseeding of native plant species.
Project 3 included a Munitions Response Program remediation on a 3.5 acre former small arms range. This program involved the excavation and screening of 600 cubic yards of lead contaminated soil.
We are so proud to have been a part of these three projects that recently won the prestigious 2023 Secretary of the Defense Environmental Award for Environmental Restoration, Installation!
