This project is a CHFA and EPA funded development for elderly and supportive housing in the former Park City Hospital complex, located in Bridgeport, CT. Assessment of four properties including the former Park City Hospital building was completed by EnviroMed from 2003 to 2008. The environmental work began with a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, (ESA) of the Park City Hospital site, and then a subsequent separate Phase I ESA for adjacent parcels on Garden Street.
Due to the old Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) at the Park City Hospital site and hazardous building materials being found in the building, a Phase II ESA (soil sampling) was performed for the Park City Hospital site. The soil sampling revealed one area of contaminated soil around a former/existing 2,000-gallon diesel fuel UST. The building contained hazardous materials, and recommendations were made by EnviroMed to properly manage/dispose of these materials. A Phase II ESA for the Garden Street parcels was also completed due to potential fill being present, and the use of one parcel being a substation. Coal ash fill was present on the 127 Garden Street parcel, and transformers inside one of the buildings were a potential area of concern. Both the Park City Hospital and the Garden Street parcels had Phase III ESAs performed to further characterize the leaking UST and coal ash fill. The Phase III ESA entailed additional soil boring sampling and analytical testing.
The results of the Phase III ESA reported soil samples over the relevant Remediation Standard Regulations. Subsequent specifications and drawings were prepared to address the remediation that would need to be performed as based on the regulations and planned development of the sites. Additionally, asbestos, lead-based paint hazardous materials inspections, and laboratory testing was completed for the Park City Hospital building, as well as the two buildings that lie on the Garden Street parcels. Specifications and drawings were also prepared for asbestos, lead-based paint and hazardous materials including, mold, radon and discharge permitting for accumulated water.
EnviroMed assisted our client (Women’s Institute of Housing and Economic Development) in providing cost estimates and bidding documents prior to the formal bid for the environmental and building hazardous materials abatement. All phases of the assessment, sampling, and specifications/drawings were reviewed by CHFA and other consultants for final approval by CHFA and EPA. Once all the assessment, sampling, and specifications were approved the abatement phase of work was supervised and monitored by EnviroMed from 2008 to 2009.
Currently the abatement work for soil and building hazardous materials for the Park City Hospital has been completed. The building hazardous materials abatement for the Garden Street parcels has also been completed. The soil remediation for 127 Garden Street will be directed under the CTDEP Voluntary Remediation Program, and funded by the EPA. Current development and submission of an Engineering Control for the 127 Garden Street parcel is underway.
We'll be in touch to find out what we can do for you.
Inspection of the Arch area for potential asbestos containing materials, potential lead-based paint, and other hazardous materials was completed by EnviroMed. A sampling plan was proposed by EnviroMed to NYCDOT for the following concerns: sample ceiling plaster (two layers of plaster), sample pipe insulation, inspect and sample the office partitions and doors for asbestos, test the paint for lead, sample the dust via bulk samples and analyze for asbestos and lead, perform TCLP sampling and analysis for building debris prior to disposal, and characterize the liquid wastes in storage. Personal sampling during the work was recommended for lead in air, asbestos in air and total particulate.Full details
EnviroMed has provided numerous Industrial Hygiene Services for Covidien Surgical Devices (formerly US Surgical) in order to aid them in ensuring a safe work place for their employees, as well as compliance with OSHA regulations. EnviroMed has provided employee exposure monitoring for ethylene oxide, xylene, formaldehyde, respirable particulates, tetrachloroethylene, asbestos, and other analytes.
Working with Covidien to review the chemicals and processes they utilize for manufacturing and sterilization, EnviroMed is able to provide monitoring services that ensure employee safety, and regulatory compliance, for a safe work environment at their facilities.Full details
EnviroMed Services provides safety training based on OSHA regulations to the Wallingford Department of Public Works facilities and the Electric Division facilities. EnviroMed Services provides OSHA training programs for the Wallingford Electric Division for the past 10 years to meet their responsibility under OSHA regulations. EnviroMed Services personnel conducted an audit of town’s public utility maintenance and distribution system and work crew. EnviroMed Services personnel visited sites, which included observing daily activities that were conducted for the work crew, log our observations, have any dangerous work habits changed and abated. Once EnviroMed Services site visit and observation were completed our client asked us to write actual OSHA safety programs for the city to follow. The city at the time had no such programs and was in need of such programs. EnviroMed wrote the following OSHA Safety Programs that are being used by this client today:
