BROWNFIELDS/VOLUNTARY CLEAN-UP/LAND DEVELOPMENT

Brownfields are defined by the EPA as "abandoned, idled, or under-used industrial and commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination." Both government and economic drivers have created an intense interest in voluntary clean-up and re-use of environmentally impacted land. EMC2 is well qualified to support Brownfields projects and voluntary corrective actions from concept through completion.

National Zinc Site, Bartlesville, Oklahoma - After conducting the remedial design and overseeing the remedial action at the site, 2-acres of metal-impacted soils remained on private property. EMC2 staff was responsible for developing a cleanup plan that not only protected human health and the environment, but also allowed for the redevelopment of the site into a soccer field for the Boys & Girls Club of the City of Bartlesville. The design of the protective cap addressed the future reuse of the property by including routing for future electric lighting, landscaping, parking lot and plans for future institutional controls. The winning partnership between the State, the City of Bartlesville, the Bartlesville Coalition, the PRP, and the private landowner was the key ingredient to the successful redevelopment of the site.

Blackwell Zinc Site - Former Zinc Smelter - The City of Blackwell wanted a land-use plan developed for the 188-acre former zinc smelter property that would be compatible with remediation and reuse of the contaminated sites in the existing Blackwell Industrial Park. The Park is part of the Blackwell Pilot Deferral Project, a site managed by the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality. EMC2 performed final design and construction management for the remediation of the property that ensured that the remedy would remain protected during and after redevelopment.

Rico, Colorado - Former Mining Community - EMC2 staff is assisting the landowners, community and the PRP to solve water quality and related issues. By working with the regulatory and community stakeholders to develop a Brownfields-type remedial program that would best serve all stakeholders high legal transaction costs and detailed investigations that are typical of CERCLA type actions will be avoided. The plan will also be supplemented by applying to all applicable state and federal grant and incentive programs.
