NPL-Caliber Cleanup at Former Industrial Site

Home / NPL-Caliber Cleanup at Former Industrial Site

Project Description


Hart & Hickman completed a $2,000,000 Time-Critical Removal Action at a former industrial ceramic manufacturing site in Abingdon, Illinois. The former facility, demolished in 1935, manufactured sinks and bathtubs in the early 1900’s.  Former lead-glazing operations at the facility resulted in extensive soil impacts. H&H performed extensive historical research to determine potential sources and pertinent structures at the property, completed site investigation using traditional and innovative methods, prepared necessary work plans, and completed a15,000-cubic yard stabilization and disposal project in several weeks. Activities included community outreach to inform local stakeholders of the proposed actions and implementation of extensive air monitoring due to the residential setting.
