W&M conducted a wide range of environmental assessments for a large pipeline company at compressor stations located throughout Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. Our work at these compressor stations ranged from Phase I ESAs, Phase II Investigations, and remediation of impacted soil associated with condensate and waste materials disposed into on-Site pits. Remediation tasks included remedial design, development of project work plans, contractor oversight, working with the state and local regulators, and confirmation sampling.
W&M performed a wide range of environmental services for this former copper wire manufacturer while it was still in operation and after it was shut down and ultimately sold to a real estate investor. W&M provided a full range of environmental services to this facility while it was still in operation including development of their SWP3, SPCC plans, asbestos surveys, Petroleum Storage Tank (PST) management, removal and closure of Leaking PSTs (LPSTs), and general regulatory assistance (e. g., waste classification). Following plant shut down, W&M assisted the client with Phase II sampling, remediation of impacted soil, and closure through the TCEQ Correction Action Program. The Site has been cleaned up and closed and ultimately sold to an investor.
W&M works at this cosmetic manufacturer (hair care products) on a daily basis serving as the in-house Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) manager. Our duties include general regulatory compliance, plant safety, and environmental training. W&M has also conducted a Phase I ESA, Phase II Investigation, remediation, closure through the TCEQ, and development of SWP3 plan for the facility.
W&M has worked on a wide range of projects for a nationally respected law firm and their clients. This work has included real estate due diligence for mergers and aquisitions and regulatory compliance projects. Specific projects have included Phase I ESAs, Phase II Investigations, addressing enforcement issues with the TCEQ, and remediation projects. Working with this law firm required attention to detail and expertise with the fate and transport of potential chemicals of concern in the soil and groundwater.
The Tri-City Firing Range, located in Plano, Texas (Site), has been utilized for police officer training purposes since its construction in the 1980s. Lead was identified in the soil on the property and sediments of an adjacent creek bed. W&M entered the Site into the TCEQ VCP, conducted soil and groundwater sampling to delineate the impact, developed the required VCP documents, completed limited soil excavation and off-Site disposal, and received final closure through the VCP.
On-Site sampling identified shallow surface soil impacts and only limited impacts to the sediment in the creek. No groundwater impact was identified at the Site. Once the Site was delineated, W&M developed a Response Action Plan (RAP) that was approved by the TCEQ and quickly completed by excavation and off-Site diposal. W&M determined that the Site could be closed under Remedy Standard A with and alternative cleanup level utilizing a transport model to verify determine a Tier 2 Protective concentration Level and thereby increasing the cleanup level from 15 mg/kg (State background for soil lead) to 500 mg/kg. This process allowed W&M to perform less remediation and, thereby, substantially decrease the remediation costs associated with this project. The project was completed on-schedule and on-budget even when additional tasks were requested by the City of Plano.
W&M has performed environmental assessment, remediation and VCP activities at the Fort Worth Opportunity Center property in Fort Worth, Texas (Site). The Site is approximately 4.5 acres in size and developed with three interconnected buildings. A laboratory and other commercial businesses operated on the Site prior to the Fort Worth Opportunity Center.
The Phase I ESA identified RECs on the site, and consequently W&M performed a Phase II investigation of the property. The assessment identified chloroform and trichloroethene (TCE) in both the soil and groundwater. The contamination was addressed through the TCEQ VCP and active groundwater remediation via enhanced vapor recovery.
