W&M worked on several proposed urban gas drilling sites located in the Town of Flower Mound. Our work has included Phase I ESAs, EPPs, Emergency Response Plans (ERP), HMMPs, NMPs, and noise monitoring. W&M utilized the Bruel & Kjaer noise monitor to determine drill rig noise levels while operating at a location outside the town. These measurements were then used to model noise levels for the site within the town to determine compliance. Noise abatement measures were specified to obtain compliance at the drill pad and compressor site.
W&M performed a wide range of environmental services for the pre-acquisition of proposed urban drill sites located in north Texas in the Barnett Shale. W&M completed Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA), Environmental Protection Plans (EPP), Hazardous Materials Management Plans (HMMP), storm water pollution prevention plans (SWP3), Noise Monitoring Plans (NMP), and noise monitoring at the drill sites. Because of variances associated with some of the drill sites and stringent municipal requirements, W&M assisted the client with the review process and public meetings. As a result of our work, many of the drill sites were approved. Additionally, W&M conducted noise monitoring to optimize compressor locations and ensure that their operation met local noise ordinances.
W&M has worked on a wide range of projects for this aluminum foundry including site sampling, remediation of impacted soil, UST removal and closure, development of SWP3 plans, SPCC plans, implementation of storm water pollution controls, compliance auditing, and Pollution Prevention. W&M has assisted this client in virtually all aspects of their on-going environmental compliance needs. W&M has responded quickly and been an advocate to the client in dealing with the state and local regulatory agencies.
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.
W&M developed SWP3s for over 100 concrete batch plants and associated aggregate mines across Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Site visits were conducted at each facility over a period of approximately three weeks. In addition, non-compliance issues were also noted and communicated to the Client. SWP3s were developed in accordance with each state’s General Permit. Budget and scheduling goals were achieved by developing report templates for each type of facility and conducting Site visits according to geographical areas.
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 at a secondary lead smelter in North Texas (hazardous waste Transfer, Storage and Disposal facility). Our work has included Phase II Investigations, remediation of impacted soil, soil sampling to evaluate air monitoring impacts, development of SWP3 plan and annual updates, spill prevention, control and countermeasure (SPCC) plan development, source reduction/waste minimization (SR/WM) plan, assistance with their Environmental Management System (EMS) plan, completion of their TPDES permit, and design and contractor oversight of landfill cell construction.
W&M assisted potentially responsible parties (PRP) in the closure of former battery disposal facility in Palmer, Texas. This site contained approximately 20,000 cubic yards of battery casing chips and other battery related waste materials. W&M conducted field investigations to delineate the environmental impacts, developed a site closure acceptable to the TCEQ, prepared plans and specifications to implement closure plan, assisted with selection of remediation contractor, and performed confirmation sampling and regulatory coordination. The remediation plan consisted of a RCRA-type solid waste management unit (SWMU) consolidating on-site waste materials and impacted soils. The SWMU was capped using on-site clay and the site was issued a VCP Final Certificate of Completion. W&M significantly reduces site closure costs by keeping the wastes on site (no off-site disposal) and utilizing Tier II calculations to minimize on-site excavation volumes.
