NYCSCA – PCB Soil Remediation
New York, NY
NYC School Construction Authority
2017 to 2019
- Transportation and Disposal of Contaminated Soils
- Thorough on-site Sampling; Testing and Analysis of Soils
- Stone, Sand, Clean Fill
Posillico was retained by the NYC School Construction Authority to remediate contaminated soils in multiple schools across New York’s five boroughs, over a contract duration of 3 years. The work involved removing PCB-contaminated soil from schools by building containment corridors, excavating, handling, transporting, and disposing of the contaminated material, backfilling the excavated area, and restoring the site with new landscaping. All this was accomplished with minimal dust, odor, and logistics disturbance to the school, as well as to the surrounding communities.
WHAT MADE THIS JOB COMPLEX
HOW POSILLICO SOLVED IT
To complete these projects on schedule, Posillico invested time and effort into early planning such as proper parking space management and the right-sized equipment and right-skilled labor force. In addition, communication was key, whether by establishing relationships with local vendors to get materials in a timely manner or communicating with school teams to be able to deliver on the specific restoration plans. Lastly, the use of dust suppression techniques, Community Air Monitoring equipment, containment areas, rigorous safety measures and the proper PPE ensured the community and workers’ safety at all times.
