Challenges
  • Goodwin College constructed several buildings and recreational facilities just north of its main campus building and on contaminated properties occupied by a bulk fuel storage and transfer facility on the east bank of the Connecticut River.
Solutions
  • The Zuvic Carr team was given the tasks of tank farm decommissioning, investigation and cleanup of the properties, and civil engineering work.
  • Zuvic Carr prepared the permits, plans and specifications, and supervised the removal of several aboveground and underground storage tanks, piping and contaminated soil associated with the former terminals. Zuvic Carr also managed the disposal of waste from the tank removals.
  • We designed and oversaw remedial activities which included excavation and off-site disposal of soil, dewatering and groundwater treatment prior to discharge to a surface water body, installation of a biosparge/ biovent (BS/BV) system, installation of a subsurface groundwater treatment peat trench so that contaminated groundwater was treated prior to discharge to the Connecticut River.
  • Zuvic Carr assisted Goodwin College with securing an EPA grant for cleanup, reviewed Contractor compliance with the Davis Bacon Act and provided technical updates in ACRES, the EPA remedial progress reporting database.
  • Zuvic Carr has continued to provide remedial performance monitoring and operation and maintenance of the BS/BV system, and periodic groundwater monitoring.
Highlights
  • Zuvic Carr successfully prepared the property for construction of the campus facilities while maintaining Goodwin College‚Äôs schedule.
  • Goodwin College was presented with an EPA Environmental Merit Award for the brownfield redevelopment project in 2012.
