Hazardous Materials, Lead-Based Paint, and Asbestos Survey – HNLC Port Authority – Newark, Ohio

STONE was retained by the Heath-Newark-Licking County (HNLC) Port Authority to complete an asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and hazardous materials (Hazmat) assessment for a building located at the Heath, Newark, Licking County Port Authority facility. The building was planned for demolition. The ACM survey was conducted in general accordance with Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) and National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) protocols. A lead-based paint (LBP) assessment of painted surfaces was performed during the site visit using a handheld X-ray fluorescent (XRF) analyzer. Hazardous materials including regulated and universal wastes were observed throughout the building and included household size containers of paints, adhesives, cleaning chemicals, coatings and acetone, as well as fluorescent bulbs, light ballasts that may be Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB)-containing, mercury thermostats, air conditioning units and drinking water fountains that may contain Freon. STONE provided field sampling results within five days of receipt of laboratory results.

“Bayshore Environmental is very pleased to have engaged STONE to conduct a Phase II assessment of a contaminated commercial property.  The technical staff at STONE worked with us to develop an excellent program that entailed soil and groundwater sampling, testing and removal of drums of waste petroleum products, and the remediation of contaminated soil.  STONE conducted the work in a timely manner, produced an excellent report that was tailored to meet our needs, and all at a very reasonable cost.  We are pleased to endorse STONE and look forward to working with them in the future.”
