Walker Branch Recycling - Site Remediation - Fort Worth, Texas
ELC provided the equipment, manpower, and logistical support to remediate an illegal dumpsite. Approximately 370,000 cubic yards of construction and demolition debris was relocated to a permitted landfill. The project was completed in two phases to accommodate the clients work schedule and budget requirements and the site was completely cleared in 64 working days.
Aircraft Fuel Farm: UST Upgrades - Dallas (Love Field), Texas
Removed and replaced four UST's at an aviation service center. Four 12,000 gallon steel tanks were replaced with four 20,000 gallon fiberglass coated double wall steel tanks. Approximately 600 feet of double-wall flex pipe was installed, along with new transition sumps and aircraft fuel dispensers. The tank excavation was shored to protect two adjacent UST's and a jet blast fence that remained in service during removal/replacement.
Folgers Coffee Company: Waste Management Unit Closure - Sherman, Texas
Project consisted of waste management unit (WMU) closure for a beverage processing facility. Two 1.5 million gallon capacity wastewater processing ponds/lagoons were removed from service and ELC was tasked to provide "clean closure" of the WMU's on a lump-sum contract basis. Working closely with the public owned treatment works (POTW), a closure plan was developed and implemented to ensure compliance with the facilities wastewater discharge permit. A storm water pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) was developed and implemented to maintain storm water compliance. ELC provided in-situ treatment of the wastewater for suspended solids, hydrocarbons, and biochemical oxygen demand. The entire volume of wastewater was successfully discharged to the POTW well below the permit levels and without incident. Approximately 3,000 tons of remaining sludge was solidified to meet land disposal restriction (LDR) requirements and the solidified material was disposed at a local landfill as class II non-hazardous waste. The ponds/lagoons were backfilled, graded for drainage, and hydro mulched. Confirmation sampling confirmed that the site met the criteria for clean closure.

Soil sampling analytical results confirmed that the lead concentrations were highest in the bullet trap and decreased with distance from the trap. The highest concentrated lead-containing material within the bullet trap was drummed and recycled. Soils excavated from the plate and pit trap, range floor, and sidewalls of the range were stockpiled, sampled, characterized, and appropriately disposed as non-hazardous wastes at a nearby landfill. Following excavation activities, confirmation soil samples were collected and were reported as below Texas specific background concentrations or applicable residential PCLs.
