Here is our project update for the week ending Friday, June 14th,
This week, site operations focused on conducting additional sampling and excavation work at any remaining arsenic and metals contaminated "hot spots'' at the Glenbrook project area. Also, our crew worked at the Federal Property site, where they weighed and cut up many of our used soil drums, preparing them for disposal.
On Monday, five confirmation samples were taken around the former driveway apron area, then the heavy rains arrived and we paused operations until the next day. For the rest of the week, the crew were collecting further soil samples, analyzing the previous week's results, and if the results came back clear or not exceeding the arsenic background levels, a grid was filled with clean backfill. Another nearby grid with some arsenic contamination was excavated until saprolite was reached, then over-excavated two feet. During the week, a total of 8 roll offs of non-contaminated soil and 57 drums of contaminated soil, were excavated and removed.
Next week, similar efforts will continue at the Glenbrook Road project area and at the Federal Property. The Army team preparing for the upcoming low probability excavation effort at Area 2, have rescheduled that effort to begin in mid-July instead of next week. It is still estimated to take a few weeks to complete.
Our Glenbrook project site operation hours are currently Monday through Thursday, from 7 am to 4 pm, and the site is secured and monitored Friday through Sunday.
Safety remains our number one priority. Throughout every phase of the project, all necessary precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the site workers, the residents of the community, and those walking and driving by.
As always, we encourage you to call or email us any time with questions and concerns.
