FORMER MCLOUTH STEEL MILL SITE
Assessment, Site Decommissioning & Remedial Design for Brownfield
NTH was retained to conduct a comprehensive site evaluation in preparation for abatement, demolition, remediation, and redevelopment activities. The site is a former steel manufacturing plant covering more than 200 acres that has Toxic Substance Control (TSCA) and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) liability due to historic operations and current site conditions.
The initial plan was to redevelop the site into a residential community. When that did not prove economically feasible, the site owner retained NTH at their consultant for their planned resumption of steelmaking operations at the site.
The former steel manufacturing plant still contains numerous buildings, debris piles, regulated wastes, a wastewater treatment facility and waste management units.
NTH has provided the following services:
NTH performed expedited turnkey services for the redevelopment within the developer’s tight time constraints. Although these projects did not proceed to construction, NTH identified relevant concerns at the site and gathered data that will expedite and reduce costs for any for future development at the site.
