Housing Site Bridgeport, CT
EnviroMed conducted a review of a previous Phase I ESA conducted by others of a former Public Housing facility in Bridgeport, CT. The goal of the assessments was to develop the site into a single-family residential complex. A Phase II ESA was completed by EnviroMed sampling soil in AOEC to determine the release areas.
Several release areas were detected and were for PAHs and lead in coal ash material. EnviroMed recommended to the client to conduct a Phase III ESA. The client authorized the Phase III assessment, and EnviroMed mobilized to the site for addition assessment of the impacted soil areas. The areas were delineated and estimates were given for each AOEC. A total quantity of PAH and lead contaminated soil above the applicable RSR criteria were given as part of the Phase III ESA.
Review of all of the assessment data during the CSM document revealed that additional metals data was necessary to ascertain non-hazardous levels of lead in soil. This project identified approximately 2,00 cubic yards of PAH impacted soil over applicable RSR criteria and approximately 500 cubic yards of non-hazardous lead impacted soil.
Remedial alternatives were discussed in detail for the site RAP. The best alternative was presented to the client considered human health and environmental factors. The remedial alternative chosen for this site was excavation of contaminated soil backfill with clean fill. The variance was used for “widespread polluted fill” as defined in the RSRs for this site. The impacted soil at the site met the criteria for “widespread polluted fill”. EnviroMed used the four-foot of removal of contaminated soil and placement of four feet of clean fill where the proposed grade is going to be grass or soil. This conforms to the RSRs as long as an Environmental Land Use Restriction (ELUR) is placed on the property. The client is currently trying to fund the project based on the estimated remediation costs associated with the site.
Several other sites have been assessed for Phase I, II, and III for the City of Bridgeport, and are included below:
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 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:
