As part of a major demolition project for the Meriden Redevelopment Agency (MRA) of the old YMCA on West Main Street, EnviroMed completed the sampling for asbestos and lead in the building materials. EnviroMed also conducted review of existing environmental documents to determine impacts to the subsurface environment.
A hazardous materials assessment was also completed to document and quantify hazardous and regulated materials prior to demolition of the building. Asbestos and lead inspections were completed to document locations and quantify materials. EnviroMed incorporated all the asbestos, lead, hazardous materials inspections in single inspection report. The next phase of operation for EnviroMed was to complete an updated Phase I ESA to include all historical environmental data, and size up the scene for possible Phase II ESA work. The history of the site noted some concerns with on-site USTs and possible contamination from off-site sources.
During the Phase II ESA EnviroMed was able to determine that there were two possible release areas. One area was related to oil from unknown source and the second was gasoline contaminated soil from a former service station upgradient of the site.
EnviroMed then completed a Phase III ESA and geotechnical investigation. The Phase III ESA was completed in the two AOECs by completing several soil borings and monitoring wells. EnviroMed calculated the impact to soil and ground water at the site. Remediation strategies were addressed in the Phase III ESA (a RAP included in the Phase III ESA Recommendations) along with cost estimates for remediation.
EnviroMed conducted a geo-technical ground penetrating radar (GPR) study for an upgradient former service station to determine if USTs were present. In addition a Phase II and Phase III ESA were completed for the upgradient parcel to determine the affect of impact on the site. Specifications for all phases of the abatement work and remediation were completed by EnviroMed, and monitoring was conducted by EnviroMed in conjunction with other consultants. The new YMCA Building occupies its former location, but now is a state of the art facility
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:
