EnviroMed Services was retained by the New Haven Housing Authority to prepare environmental assessment for the West Rock Community Center. The environmental work began with a Phase I ESA for the site. Due to old underground storage tanks (USTs) at the site and hazardous building materials, a Phase II ESA (soil sampling) and building investigations was performed for the West Community Center. The soil sampling revealed areas of contaminated soil around a former/existing two 10,000-gallon fuel UST. The building contained hazardous materials including asbestos, lead and PCBs, and recommendations were made by EnviroMed to New Haven Housing Authority’s Project Manager to remediate and dispose of these materials.
EnviroMed assisted the New Haven Housing Authority in providing cost estimates, design specifications and bidding documents for both soil remediation and building hazardous materials abatement. EnviroMed Services’ Licensed Environmental Professional (LEP) has worked to develop several solutions to deal with contaminated soil. The filing of a Land Use Restriction for the property will result in a saving of one million dollars in the cost of remediation of the property. A cost estimate and time frame for each approach was discussed with New Haven Housing Authority’s Project Manager. All phases of the assessment, sampling, and specifications/drawings were reviewed by New Haven Housing Authority’s Project Manager and the assigned architect for this project. Specifications were approved and the abatement phase of work will be supervised and monitored by EnviroMed. The construction is anticipated to start in May 2014.
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:
