GAL-588-11.10 Environmental Clearance Review – Gallipolis, Ohio

STONE completed an environmental clearance review report for three Gallia County Waste Areas (“sites”) associated with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) GAL-588-11.10 (PID 113908) project. The environmental review consisted of assessing the sites for surface waters, federal and state-listed species habitat, Section 4(f) and 6(f) public lands, FEMA floodplains, and hazardous materials. Cultural resource reviews were performed via subconsultant. STONE worked closely with the client to avoid any potential resources, and all three areas were recommended for environmental clearance. The client desired to begin using the waste/borrow areas within an expedited timeframe. STONE’s responsiveness allowed us to complete this project on a short timeline, allowing the Contractor to begin work on this emergency project.

I just wanted to reach out to both of you & all of Stone for your outstanding effort, due diligence & professionalism on this project.

I’m certainly no ESA expert, but I was blown away by the detail contained in your report, especially given the tight timeframe that was required for delivery.

Please know that your work at Walnut Grove is very much appreciated by everyone here at POAH.

For the record, I am now a huge fan of Stone Environmental, and I hope we will continue our working relationship well into the future.

Doug Dempsey, POAH
