Pulaski Skyway Rehabilitation
Dresdner Robin provides Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) and construction support services for the rehabilitation of the Pulaski Skyway including onsite inspections, and the documentation of contaminated materials (soil and groundwater) management as required to maintain local, state, and federal environmental compliance.
Dresdner Robin prepared a Hazardous Waste Screening (HWS) report for the three-mile linear construction project. The HWS report identified numerous NJDEP Known Contaminated Sites, properties documented as having deed notices memorializing soil contamination and properties documented with groundwater contamination (Classification Exception Areas). Site traverses National Priority List (NPL) properties including the PJP Landfill and the Passaic and Hackensack Rivers (components of the Diamond Alkali Co. NPL). Dresdner Robin work scope included geophysical investigation, soil and groundwater sampling activities, aquifer studies, and coordination with numerous property owners to complete the pre-construction site investigation along the land corridor.
Further, Dresdner Robin conducted a sediment sampling program in the Passaic and Hackensack rivers for future river work construction activities. Data from these programs is being used to determine the most cost-effective and appropriate methods for managing contaminated soil and ground water, to determine dewatering calculations and flow rates, and to obtain landfill disruption approvals and develop environmental monitoring plans.
During construction, Dresdner Robin prepares and submits permit applications to acquire Discharge to Surface Water (DSW) or Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) permits for the treatment and discharge of contaminated ground water generated by construction activities, and Materials Management Plans and assists with Environmental Plans and Specifications for contaminated soil and groundwater encountered along the project corridor.
