Remediated Soil: 14,210 cubic yards (19,896 tons)
In April, 2008, the City requested the EPA allow the “fast track” remediation of this site so that the work could be completed in anticipation of construction of the new Animal Care & Control Facility (ACCF). The Remedial Work Plan was prepared for the proposed facility and approved by the EPA in June, 2008. Remediation began in August of that year, and was completed on January 28, 2009.
The proposed ACCF remediation consisted of the removal of approximately 14,210 cubic yards (19,896 tons) of soil impacted with ash containing lead, arsenic, dioxin and PAHs above the project Remedial Goals. Contaminated soil was removed in order to provide a two-foot barrier from ash-related material across the site, based on the final Site Plan elevations for the new facility. The impacted material was stockpiled to undergo TCLP sampling/analysis, and properly manifested for transport to Trail Ridge Landfill for re-use as initial cover on the landfill. The total expenditure for the remediation project was $199,109 for engineering services (including design, construction management/testing, and environmental sampling) and $555,670 for construction.
