NTH Consultants, Ltd. (NTH) was involved throughout this entire project as EQ quickly retained NTH during the remedial phase of the project to assist with environmental sampling and to help assess whether contaminated soils were adequately removed. NTH also assisted with various geotechnical matters and was involved with engineering for several activities needed to complete the restoration. NTH worked with the NPS for EQ along with a multidisciplinary team of engineers, biologists, ecologists, geologists, and environmental scientists.
According to the National Park Service, "the remediation of the Krejci Dump Site has benefited the Park and the public. This has become a model remediation in the NPS; by taking a contaminated former industrial site, restoring the ecology to its native condition (including three acres of wetland and wet meadow habitats) for unrestricted use by Park visitors, animals and plants alike, and transforming the additional open space that can be used for recreation ear a very urban environment."
The project was not without it's challenges however; for a more in-depth discussion of the design & construction challenges of the Krejci Dump Site restoration, please attend our free webinar on July 28, 2015.
