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.

“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.”
