Challenges
  • Goodwin College purchased the former gasoline station and vehicle repair facility to redevelop as its Gateway Building to the College. The brownfield property was used as a gasoline station and auto repair facility for more than 50 years. Soil and groundwater at the site was contaminated with gasoline and other petroleum products.
  • Work was conducted under the CT Voluntary Remediation Program using EPA Brownfield Cleanup Grants, under EPA oversight.
Solutions
  • Zuvic Carr completed Phase I, II and III Environmental Site Assessments, and a Sensitive Receptor Survey, working in accordance with its Health and Safety Plan and Job Hazard Analysis.
  • A pre-demolition assessment of hazardous materials in the building was completed, including sampling and testing of roofing materials, wall board, tiles, mastics, adhesives and paint.
  • A Remedial Action Plan and Analysis of Brownfields Cleanup Alternatives was prepared that called for excavation of additional contaminated soil and removal of hazardous building materials prior to building demolition. The remedial action was completed in accordance with an EPA-approved Quality Assurance Project Plan and appropriate environmental permits.
  • Post-remedial groundwater compliance monitoring was completed and verification reporting was filed with the CTDEEP and EPA.
Highlights
  • Successfully achieved clean closure of the property and CTDEEP and EPA approval of the cleanup and verification within a rigorous timeframe established by Goodwin College.
