Phase I & II ESAs and Cleanup Oversight of Former Manufacturing Building – Fifth Third Bank – Franklin Furnace, Ohio

STONE was contracted by Fifth Third Bank to conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of a former plastics manufacturer. The manufacturer melted high density polyethylene pellets and extruded them through molds. The site visit identified areas of staining and hydraulic oil storage. STONE was then retained to conduct a Phase II ESA consisting of shallow soil borings inside the main building.

STONE then coordinated bids to conduct cleanup at the building, which included removal of remaining chemicals, storage containers, piping, and miscellaneous solid waste/debris; power-washing all areas of staining and properly disposing of rinse waters; and excavating/disposing of petroleum contaminated soils. STONE reviewed the cleanup efforts and submitted a letter-report documenting achievement of the scope of work.

“STONE is an instrumental part of our team on the Portsmouth By-Pass Project: the 16-mile new construction project, which is the single largest project in ODOT history. This project has come with more than its share of environmental challenges. STONE has delivered over 30 full environmental clearance reviews and reports we have requested as part of the project, handling them from start to finish in a very timely & cost effective manner. Furthermore, they’ve proven themselves as an extremely valuable resource when it comes to consulting on mitigation efforts, hazardous materials, and resolving various unknown environmental situations that the project has encountered.

 

From the top down STONE has proven they are committed to excellence and we look forward to working with them on many projects in the future.”
