Here is our project update for the week ending September 20th:
This week, the crew conducted work at both the Glenbrook Road project area as well as at the Federal property. The effort at the Glenbrook project area included mechanical digging and refilling 6 test pits in areas of clean fill to collect soil samples to assess existing compaction and soil moisture in these backfill areas. This will help us complete our restoration plans as it pertains to the recommended soil compaction at the site. Our crew continued their ongoing efforts at the Federal property, which included calibrating monitors and conducting the equipment inventory needed to in prepare for the upcoming excavation.
As we continue to prepare for the remaining tasks at the Glenbrook project area, we are simultaneously completing 'End of Project' tasks at the Federal Property. Until cooler weather returns, we will conduct some final restoration efforts where possible in completed areas at the 4825 Glenbrook Project area. The team tentatively plans to start some of the backfilling and compaction activities at the site next week. This involves first utilizing clean back fill soil already staged at the Glenbrook Road project area, potentially starting next week. Next, we will be bringing in one truck of soil at a time, as needed.
As we noted in previous weekly updates, when the cooler fall weather does return, we will resume excavating the small areas that remain to be completed at the Glenbrook project site. Additionally, the ECBC team will be performing a second round of soil gas sampling in the basement of 4835 Glenbrook Road. The sampling will take three weeks and then analytical results will be available by early January 2020. This will help our team assess any final actions for 4835 Glenbrook Road.
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.
