Building a Better Way



Remediation System Design, with Preliminary Engineering for a Scrap Metal Processing Facility




A Consent Agreement Final Order (CAFO), regarding a scrap processing operation, ordered that a storm water collection and treatment system and a track out reduction system for the scrap processing premises be designed and implemented as a corrective action at this site which had excessively high levels of contaminants in surface soils.  Retained by the client  to conceptualize and design, with preliminary engineering, a storm water collection and treatment system and a track out reduction system on the scrap processing premises. Asked to address a manhole in the northeast section of the property; a damaged storm sewer in front the scrap metal operation; roof drains on each building; oily chips/parts storage; parts cleaning; and a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Plan (SPCCP).  Evaluated alternative remedial technologies based on results obtained from site investigation activities.   Interacted with Client’s attorney, EPA personnel, State of Michigan personnel, and Detroit City and Water Department personnel with regard to requirements, permits, and approvals.   Reviewed US EPA’s documentation of contaminants delineated on the site.  Performed a site reconnaissance of the site, measured the site and identified all features on the site.  Prepared a CAD drawing of the site to scale.  Identified how truck traffic entered and exited the site and the frequency of traffic. Determined how the site handled, stored, repackaged, and transported metallic products in the form of scrap and excess materials from production plants in the area.  Observed the site during heavy rain to determine surface flow directions.  Developed a corrective action plan that met with EPA approval and addressed all aspects of the CAFO.  Conceptualized and designed a storm water collection and treatment system and the track out reduction system.
