Brickhouse conducted a Preliminary Assessment, Site Investigation, Remedial Investigation and ongoing groundwater monitoring to delineate soil and groundwater contamination at the Brick Recycling automobile salvage and scrap recycling facility. A total of 27 Areas of Concern (AOCs) were identified. Project work included a Remedial Alternatives Analysis for petroleum compounds in soil and groundwater along with preparation and implementation of a Remedial Action Work Plan. Remediation included hot spot removal from six AOCs and bioremediation of 2,500 tons of petroleum contaminated soil.
Brickhouse prepared Final Remedial Action Reports for soil and groundwater, which were approved by NJDEP in 2011 and 2012. A Classification Area (CEA) was established to restrict groundwater usage in a limited area. Brickhouse continues to monitor groundwater at the Site in accordance with the issued Remedial Action Permit and prepare Biennial Certification reports to NJDEP.
Brickhouse prepared Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SPPPs) for two of Brick Recycling’s scrap metal processing and recycling facilities. Part of these efforts included advising Brick Recycling as to the impact of new stormwater regulations on their operations and working with the facility to upgrade and modify operations to remain in compliance. Brickhouse continues to conduct NPDES sampling, monitoring, and reporting for both facilities.
