To delineate the extent of the contaminated soil and groundwater, Farallon initially completed a subsurface investigation. Farallon then conducted a remedial alternative and cost-benefit analysis feasibility study to support the selection of a cost-effective remedial alternative that would protect human health and the environment and meet the property redevelopment objective to construct a nine-story building with an underground parking garage.
Based on the results of the subsurface investigation and feasibility study, Farallon developed a detailed Cleanup Action Plan that was used to manage the excavation, segregation, and off-site disposal of petroleum-contaminated soil during construction. The cleanup action also involved treatment of contaminated groundwater. Technical support services provided by Farallon resulted in an efficient and cost-effective cleanup solution for both the former property owner and the property developer, and facilitated timely completion of the planned hotel.
