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.

Regarding a Phase II ESA during Christmas week – Thanks for all that you did on this one. The Borrowers didn’t love the expense, but they really appreciated how conscientious you were in delivering this on time for us to close!! As did I!
