IKON was contracted to perform site remediation at a confidential client manufacturing facility located in Houston, Texas. The project entailed extensive clearing of trees and heavy brush along each side a man-made storm water drainage ditch. Once all vegetation was removed, the ditch soils were impacted primarily with heavy metals. The excavation performed was along the bottom and the two sides of this 1800 lineal feet long ditch.
Soils removed were surface related and excavation averaged approximately 1 foot in depth. IKON transported and disposed of the impacted soil material into a TCEQ licensed landfill as Class 2 characterized material. Following confirmation sampling by the engineer, IKON backfilled areas where soils were removed and built a new drainage ditch in accordance with lines and engineered grades, approved. Site was restored to better than original condition.
IKON returned to the site a couple of years later and performed additional soil remediation at three additional ditches overlying the site boundaries. The City of Houston ditch, UPRR ditch and the adjacent warehouse distribution ditch were remediated. Special permits were required from the City of Houston and UPRR rail encroachment permits were required. Impacted soil was removed off-site landfilled and clean soils brought in and graded per stormwater flow elevations.
