PCB-Impacted Soil Excavation Project

Maintaining successful operations on a property while undergoing an environmental remediation project can present a number of challenges. RENOVA was selected by the client as the key implementation contractor for a PCB-impacted soil excavation project at an active manufacturing facility in Union Beach, New Jersey.

RENOVA first completed a constructability review and presented value engineering options to the client, including the solutions to mitigate disruption of the business operations on premises. To this end, RENOVA implemented the work methodically, and maintained constant communication with the client. Specifically, during the removal and replacement of the facility’s 8-inch sewer line, RENOVA worked during off-hours to avoid interruption to daily workflow.

RENOVA excavated 327 yards of PCB-impacted soil and utilized trench boxes to mitigate sloughing of surrounding soils. Additionally, RENOVA installed helical piles to support structures in close proximity to excavations, including along a floodwall under a loading dock. Further, 27,000 gallons of PCB-impacted groundwater were removed from the excavation and transported for off-site disposal.

RENOVA finished the project by restoring 1,280sqft of asphalt. RENOVA completed the work on time successfully and with zero reportable incidents or safety concerns.
