Upon assessing a client's property and finding it to be contaminated with chlorinated solvents, GRI recommended that the property be entered into the Brownfields Program to limit potential environmental liability during future site development.
A client of Geological Resources, Inc. (GRI) acquired a former textile mill property and an adjoining industrial facility property with the goal of redeveloping the sites as part of a Sports and Entertainment district. The two properties total approximately 6.83 acres. The textile mill began operations in the early 1900s and adjoining it was an active machining and metal fabrication facility.
GRI assisted in conducting a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and a Phase II ESA consisting of soil and ground water sampling on both properties. The properties were contaminated with chlorinated solvents. GRI recommended entering the properties into the Brownfields Program to limit potential environmental liability during site development.
GRI worked with the client’s attorney to prepare a Brownfields application and conducted additional assessment and remedial activities that the Brownfields Program required, as well as prepared and implemented the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) during redevelopment activities.
