Client: SL Hospitality

Athenica was retained to investigate and remediate a vacant property in Jersey City, NJ prior to the redevelopment of the site with a hotel. During the initial Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, Athenica discovered the site’s past use as a grease manufacturing plant dating back to the mid-1800s and subsequent use as a gasoline station. In conjunction with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and our licensed site remediation professional (LSRP), Athenica performed the remedial investigation, developed a remedial action plan, performed the remediation oversight and lastly, upon completion of the remediation, issued a Response Action Outcome (RAO). Athenica’s remediation plan included the removal of free product consisting of pine tar via the use of several Enhanced Fluid Recovery (EFR) events throughout the site, followed by the excavation and proper disposal of all contaminated soil and the application of Oxygen Release Compound Advanced ® Pellets in the excavation pit under the direct supervision of the LSRP.
