CAPE’s Work Supports DOD Award for Environmental Restoration

CAPE’s Work Supports DOD Award for Environmental Restoration

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
