Phase I & II ESAs and Cleanup Oversight of Former Manufacturing Building – 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.

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
