VERTEX managed the remediation of a site located in Anaheim, California that was being developed as an apartment complex. The site was historically a part of larger parcel that was subdivided and used for industrial operations, warehousing and parking.
VERTEX initially completed due diligence including a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and Phase II Limited Subsurface Investigation (LSI). Findings identified impacts to soil. VERTEX conducted remediation at this site in an effort to remove the identified dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) contamination in soil. The remediation conducted at this site generally consisted of soil sampling, soil excavation, confirmation sampling, waste characterization, off-site disposal, and regulatory status reports, and the preparation of OCHCA closure reports, as risks were reduced to acceptable levels to allow for the development of a multifamily apartment complex. VERTEX was able to obtain a regulatory closure (conditional no further action) letter from the OCHCA for this site.
