REPRESENTATIVE PHASE II ESA PROJECTS

  • Phase II ESA, 3.2 Acres Undeveloped (Vacant) Land for Friendship Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia: Task Included: Soil Borings and soil/groundwater sampling in the areas of the former Lumber Yard, Printing Company and USTs. Multiple borings were also advanced at the property to address concerns from offsite recognized environmental conditions (REC) as defined by the ASTM 1527-05
  • Phase II Environmental Site Assessment-Former Fort Oglethorpe Waste Water Treatment Facility for the City of Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. Task included: Soil Borings and soil/groundwater sampling in the areas of the aerators/clarifiers, digesters, maintenance facility and onsite laboratory
  • Phase II ESA, Lindbergh Plaza Shopping Center, Atlanta, Georgia. Task included: Soil borings and sampling inside the former K-Mart/Penske Automotive Service Center and ground penetrating radar (GPR) in the parking area for a presumed UST

  • Soil Assessment, Amwiler-Gwinnett Business Park, Doraville, Georgia. The site consisted of approximately 31 acres, improved with an office/industrial park. Prior Phase II Investigations (performed by other consultants) identified arsenic in soil at concentrations that exceeded the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GAEPD), Hazardous Site Response Program (HSRP) Notification Concentrations (NC). As Project Manager, Mr. Reeves was task with delineating the arsenic in soil via hand auguring, Geoprobe®, drilling and rock coring. Mr. Reeves coordinated with a Geochemist and Professor with the University of Georgia to analyze three (3) rock cores from the site at depths ranging from 60 to 82 feet below land surface. Based on the analysis using electron microprobe analysis with wavelength dispersive spectroscopy, it was concluded that high levels of arsenic (arsenopyrite) were a natural geologic occurrence and not the result of a release of regulated substances at the property
  • Phase II ESA, 0.697-Acre Vacant Parcel-Whitehall Street, Atlanta, Georgia. Task included: A GPR Investigation in the parking area for the UST pit and product lines, Geoprobe® borings, and soil/groundwater sampling. This site is currently being assessed for Brownfields

ADVANCED ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECTS
