Abscope Environmental is nearing completion on a remedial action project for a NYS utility in Lloyd, NY to remove PCB and PAH impacted sediment from a 2.5 Acre wetland and drainage channel. The 7,500 cy PCB and PAH sediment excavation project has been quite challenging due to the abnormal amount of rain this season and Abscope crews continue to forge forward toward completion. Excavation of all contaminated sediments and off-site disposal has been completed. Remaining work at the site includes completion of a 1,000-foot stone lined channel, backfilling excavation areas and placing high organic topsoil.The final restoration of the 2.5 Acre wetland is underway and includes installing over 1,000 wetland plants, 6,200 plugs and seeding of 3.5 acres. It is anticipated that some final restoration may need to be performed next spring. Abscope is expected to be substantially complete with the project in December of 2018.

Abscope Environmental Inc has begun work on a remedial action for a New York State utility in Lloyd, NY to remove PCB and PAH impacted sediment from a 2.5-acre wetland and drainage channel. The remedial action consists of installing sediment controls, site clearing, water bypass system and hydraulic barriers. Site preparation activities also include construction of gravel and timber mat access roads into the wetland, construction of a temporary water treatment system and sediment process areas. Upon completion of the site preparation activities, site remediation will commence with the excavation of 7,500 CY of PCB sediment. Following sediment excavation, the area will be backfilled with an organically enriched general fill material and top soiled. Final restoration activities of the 2.5-acre disturbed wetland will include placing specified channel fill and installing the wetland plants and seeding. An estimated 12,000 tons of sediment excavated from the site will be stabilized and transported off site for disposed at a Subtitle D Landfill. Abscope is expected to complete the project in the Fall of 2018

Abscope Environmental Inc is continuing remedial actions to address contamination from a former hospital under the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program on a site in Corning, NY. 16,000 CY of soil have been excavated to date and approximately 3,000 CY meeting the re-use criteria have been reused on site and placed under a 2-foot-thick gravel cover system. Approximately 15,000 tons of excavated soils not meeting the onsite re-use criteria have been disposed of offsite at a subtitle D landfill. Tasks yet to be completed include in-situ treatment/chemical fixation of 270 CY of soil exceeding RCRA limits for metals, excavation of remaining non-impacted soil and relocation onsite under a two-foot-thick cover system, abandonment and removal of several utilities and loading / offsite disposal of an additional 10,000 tons of soil. Abscope is expected to complete the project by the end of August 2018

Abscope Environmental Completes 2,500 LF Barrier Wall Abscope recently completed a closed barrier wall around a former landfill for a confidential client in the mid-west. The 2,500 lf barrier consisted of 80 mil HDPE GSE CurtainWall panels, 22’ wide up to 26’ in depth, fabricated by GSE Environmental, LLC. Due to the contaminants present, the owner opted to install a dual barrier wall. The primary wall, installed by DeWind One Pass Trenching, LLC, was constructed as a soil mixed barrier. To alleviate future worries of contaminant break-out through the soil mixed wall, the owner installed a secondary barrier wall made of HDPE. For more information on this project please call. We have experience in multiple types of barrier walls used for environmental containment.

Using a 120,000 lbs excavator, Abscope forces perform soil mixing operations at a former MGP facility to a depth of 28’ below grade. A proprietary grout mix was blended into the contaminated soil to create a monolith capable of locking up the contamination in place thereby avoiding expensive trucking and disposal fees.

Abscope Environmental Inc. was part of the team that was presented the 2017 Engineering Excellence Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) at their 2017 Fall Forum. Abscope was the general contractor for Central Maine Power under the direction of their engineering consultant, Haley & Aldrich, on the remediation project of a former MGP site in Belfast, Maine. The coal tar removal project was performed in a small town during the height of the fall tourist season and as such, Abscope was challenged with performing the project without disrupting the local businesses, residents, or tourist. The project was successfully completed without incident, and the city street was reopened before the winter of 2016. We are proud to have been a part of the team with Haley & Aldrich and Central Maine Power who were recipients of the ACEC of Maine “Special Recognition Award for Engineering Excellence in Environmental Clean-Up on an Urban Site.” A link to this award and project summary can be found under ‘Category E: Environmental’ at https://www.acec.org/maine/awards/
