During the extension of Route 146 in Worcester, the Massachusetts Highway Department contracted Soil Solutions to perform patented ex-situ chemical fixation for lead impacted soils.
The soil was previously classified as hazardous waste and subject to expensive disposal fees and taxes.
The remediated soils were reclassified as non-hazardous and allowed for transport and disposal at a less expensive Subtitle D landfill.
Soil Solutions conducted treatability analysis to determine the proper chemical admixture and engineered the ex-situ remediation process to meet site conditions.
We then mobilized specialized process equipment and patented chemical stabilizers to perform the work, and managed all soil remediation, stockpile tracking, confirmation analysis, and transportation and disposal activities.
