Under a bankruptcy settlement, our client is responsible for cleanup and facilitating redevelopment of a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act site in Meridian, Mississippi. Past releases from the former facility resulted in contamination of soil and groundwater, as well as dense nonaqueous-phase liquid impacts that extend to the bank of a river that borders the site. Our challenge is to design and implement a remedy that maximizes the benefits to the environment within the limits of available funding.
Integral developed a conceptual site model that presents a thorough site understanding based on existing data and information and provides the basis for focused investigations to support the design and implement corrective actions. We have worked closely with the client to develop a strategy that prioritizes implementation of corrective action elements that address the most immediate hazards, maximize environmental benefit, and facilitate site redevelopment.
Integral’s efforts have been critical to regulatory approval of a corrective measures study, and we are leading the design of corrective measures with remedy implementation anticipated in 2024.
