Abscope has mobilized and begun site preparation for remediation of MGP sediments from within the NY State Barge canal. Crews are currently installing a cofferdam and rock netting systems as the final steps of site preparation. Once completed Abscope crews will excavate and remove approximately 800 cy of MGP impacted sediments from the canal. Abscope’s crew will be challenged by working in the severe Western NY winter weather . The project needs to be completed by April 15th, 2019 when the canal reopens.

Abscope Environmental Inc has completed a wetland remediation project for a New York State utility in Lloyd, NY. The 6-month long PCB and PAH remediation project entailed the installation of a by-pass system to bypass the site inflows around the work area, installation of matted access roads, construction of support areas including staging pads, decon station and water treatment area. Approximately 7000 CY of PCB and PAH impacted sediment was excavated from a 2.5-acre wetland. The wetland sediments were staged and solidified before transported off site for disposal in a Subtitle D Landfill. The excavation areas were backfilled with a high organic general fill prior to placement of wetlands topsoil, channel fill and final grading. Most of the restoration of the 2.5 Acre wetland has recently been completed which included installation of over 1000 wetland plants, 6200 plugs and seeding of 3.5 acres. It is anticipated that some final restoration (e.g. plantings) will need to be performed next spring. The project began in May of 2018. Abscope crews endured an abnormal amount of rainfall adding difficulties to an already challenging project.

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.
