A site surrounded by extensive residential development required stabilization of more than 57,000 cubic yards of soil impacted by arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, and nickel. Advanced geostatistics and XRF analysis were used to focus the site excavation and treat and handle only affected soil. Our client constructively reused treated soil, sludge, and waste. The treated soil was used as internal berms within the on-site landfill. Results included a significant reduction in the treatment of additional material by attributing the existing chromium to background sources. The project was performed for a final cost of $7 million versus the preliminary cost estimate of $12 to $25 million, based on data from the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).
