Penn E&R completed a comprehensive soil and ground water investigation to assist the client through the NJDEP Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) program and the Site Remediation Program in order to sell the 16-acre property in Bergen County. Impacts to soil and ground water from historic use of the property and historic fill were found and identified as several Areas of Concern (AOCs). Each AOC was addressed through the site investigation, delineation, and remedial phases.
Ultimately, Penn E&R’s construction division implemented remedial activities including the PCB and petroleum impacted soil excavation, in coordination with both NJDEP and USEPA. As part of the remediation and redevelopment, the site is being capped with layers of fill material and clean fill and the building footprint will also be included as part of the cap. Also, a CEA for ground water impacted by historic fill was established.
Upon completion of the soil excavation remediation, the property was sold, and Penn E&R continues to be involved as the LSRP during the redevelopment construction activities. Once the capping portion of the construction activities is complete, an RAO can be issued for the Site. Both buyer’s and seller’s teams of consultants, legal, and corporate were pleased with the outcome of the project and ultimately the reuse and redevelopment of the Site.
