PCB Mitigation

Project Manager: Elizabeth Gonzalez, PE

PCB Mitigation

Waterstone was retained by an active steel manufacturing plant to assess the source and extent of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) impact identified in the basement of a former plate mill which was being retrofitted for use as a pipe mill. Extensive characterization sampling was conducted within the concrete walls and floors of the facility in order to define the extent of contamination. Affected building surfaces which had the potential for human exposure were mechanically prepped and encapsulated with a double layer epoxy system which is regularly inspected and maintained as a part of an approved Operations and Maintenance Monitoring Plan (OMMP). All work was conducted in coordination with and under the regulatory oversight of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to facilitate a risk-based TSCA approval for encapsulation of the affected building materials.
