Environmental Due DiligenceASTM Phase I/II/III Site Assessments and Subsurface Investigations (residential, commercial & industrial) throughout the U.S. MARLEY has provided environmental due diligence services on properties throughout the United States. Properties have ranged from small, undeveloped residential parcels to abandoned CERCLA/RCRA facilities.
BlasKote Brownfields Site Investigation & Cleanup, Houston Ship Channel, Houston TX. This abandoned 4.5 acre industrial facility historically refurbished carbon steel equipment used in the off-shore petrochemical industry. When hazardous lead concentrations were discovered in uncontrolled piles of sand grit blast material dispersed throughout the property, Phase II investigation activities were halted and MARLEY initiated an expedited removal action to excavate, stabilize, manifest and dispose of 2,800 tons of grit blast material. This response action eliminated a potentially hazardous long-term exposure to employees working at neighboring industrial facilities.
Fellows Gear Shaper Company, ASTM Site Assessment & Subsurface Investigation and RCRA Facility Cleanup & Closure, Springfield VT. As the prime consultant for the mortgage holder following a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, MARLEY performed the site assessment, subsurface investigation, characterization, and RCRA cleanup and closure of the 350,000 SF gear cutter manufacturing facility. In addition to performing all aspects of the investigation and cleanup, MARLEY prepared a series of Remedial Action Plans and closure reports (Equipment Closure Report, Corrective Action Plan, Land Use and Deed Restriction notices, Final Site Report, HASP, etc.) detailing every aspect of the facility’s cleanup and closure.
Construction Engineering & InspectionsBuilding Demolition & UST Removal Oversight of a Defunct Nursing Home, Hartford County CT. As a prime consultant for the mortgage holder, MARLEY performed an environmental assessment of a defunct 50-bed nursing home for the purpose of identifying the environmental issues associated with the facility. MARLEY’s pre-demolition survey established the presence of non-friable asbestos in building materials. A ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey confirmed the presence of several unregistered underground storage tanks (USTs) no longer in use but never properly abandoned. MARLEY prepared the bid documents, solicited bids, secured the necessary municipal demolition permits, managed contracts with Contractors, and performed all oversight during abatement and removal of the regulated materials and USTs, and demolition of the main structure and its outbuildings.
Permitting & Regulatory ComplianceNPDES General Permit for the Discharge of Storm Water Associated with Industrial Activities, Various Clients in Connecticut. MARLEY has prepared NPDES stormwater general permits and facility Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) for several industrial clients. We prepared the SWPPPs in a format that makes performing the quarterly monitoring and semi-annual sampling/monitoring easy for facility personnel to self-implement.
Spill Prevention Countermeasure & Control (SPCC) Plan Preparation, Various Clients in Connecticut and New York. MARLEY has prepared and certified several SPCC Plans in accordance with 40 CFR 112 (SPCC Rule) for several commercial and industrial clients. We have also prepared Tier I Qualified Facility SPCC Plans which can be self-certified and maintained in-house, at significant cost savings to the facility.
CTDEEP Coastal Boundary Permit/Approval for a Proposed High-Density Residential Development at the Black Rock Shipyard Superfund Site, Brewster Street, Bridgeport CT. Originally, a steel boat manufacturer (1960 – 1991) the Site fell into disrepair and EPA placed a geotextile cap over the Site as a temporary measure to control public and marine exposure to PCBs and heavy metals. MARLEY joined the Developer’s team of architects and engineers to secure the state and municipal permits necessary to construct a 76-unit high-density residential condominium on the abandoned Superfund site. MARLEY prepared and successfully secured CTDEEP approval (without comment) the zoning application’s Coastal Boundary Review Application and Coastal Management Plan.
