NEWBERRY PARK APARTMENT COMPLEX
Carlson conducted a Phase II site investigation at this 3-acre residential apartment complex near the University of Illinois at Chicago Campus in Chicago. Our investigation identified site-wide soil and groundwater impacts.
Carlson enrolled the property in the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s (IEPA’s) Site Remediation Program. Site-wide engineered barriers were required due to widespread hydrocarbon and heavy metal contamination. Our remediation planning needed to accommodate complicating factors such as extensive landscaping, fixed finished grade elevation requirements to suit building façade elevations, and residential occupancy of the structure.
Carlson obtained IEPA approval to mitigate the potential ingestion risk by installing a novel, thin section engineered barrier covered by sod. This barrier met aesthetic requirements, shortened installation time, reduced soil haul-off, and minimized human exposure to impacted soils.
Carlson also provided oversight of the abandonment of a potable water well located at the property, an action which was a prerequisite for the issuance of the comprehensive final No Further Remediation letter allowing either residential or industrial/commercial land use of the property.
