Hamtramck School Due Care Activities
BLDI was retained by a school to conduct the necessary environmental due diligence involved with the redevelopment of a property located in Hamtramck, Michigan into a school. Previous uses of the property included a Department of Public Works garage that included five underground storage tanks (USTs) and an area where incinerator ash was disposed. To satisfy the bank requirements for the loan, BLDI conducted a variety of investigation activities, in order to fully document the Owner’s requirements with regards to due care and continuing obligations and gain Michigan Department of Energy, Great Lakes, and Environment (EGLE) approval on the Documentation of Due Care Compliance (DDCC).
BLDI worked with EGLE to develop an exposure pathway evaluation plan that would meet their requirements for DDCC approval. Incremental sampling was conducted to evaluate the direct contact exposure pathway for the soccer field, which had been graded with impacted fill material when it was developed. Extensive soil gas sampling was conducted to evaluate the vapor intrusion concerns for the school building.
During the different phases of this project, BLDI utilized its expertise to prepare Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments, and a Documentation of Due Care Compliance, which was ultimately approved by EGLE.
BLDI conducted a variety of investigation activities including incremental soil sampling sampling and extensive sub-slab vapor sampling, in order to fully document the Owner’s requirements with regards to due care and continuing obligations and gain EGLE approval on the DDCC.
