Acquisition-Support Environmental

We don't just "talk the talk" when it comes to applying creative engineering solutions to environmental issues that are protective of the environment while saving our clients money. . .  We "walk the walk." 

Recent example projects include:

Salt City Enterprises, Syracuse, New York - ASE was retained to evaluate a Site in Syracuse, New York where our client was proposed a $12,000+ investigation to be potentially followed by still more costly remediation.  ASE worked with the regulator to open a spill incident for the site, then presented a standards and risk-based case to the regulator to attain closure of the site at a savings to the client of over $10,000. 

333 Butternut LLC, DeWitt, New York - Closure of three 10,000-gal gasoline underground storage tanks at a former gasoline station in DeWitt, New York. 

Camillus Cutlery, Camillus, New York - Phase II ESA of a prominent former cutlery manufacturer, consisting of soil and groundwater characterization in support of the marketing of the property. 

Metal Finishing Supply, Inc., East Syracuse, New York - Based on a Phase I ESA that ASE performed in support of a prospective sale of this metal coatings manufacturer, ASE performed a limited scope surface soil sampling and test pit effort at the site. This Phase II ESA identified VOCs in surface soil.  ASE assisted the client in opening a NYSDEC Spill Incident Record for the Site, then attaining closure of the spill record, using a risk-based approach.  The sale of the facility was recently closed.

KeyBank, Syracuse, New York - To support fast track redevelopment of a site in Syracuse, New York, ASE removed a hydraulic lift and a limited volume of soil previously indicated to be contaminated.  ASE documented removal and collected post-excavation samples with an eye toward eventual closure of the spill record that had previously been opened for the site.  Following removal and initiation of redevelopment of the Site, ASE successfully petitioned the regulator for closure of the site.   

TCE Site, Crowland, United Kingdom - ASE served as a subconsultant to evaluate remediation alternatives for a site in Norfolk, UK where soil and groundwater are contaminated with TCE.  Instead of the costly (and potentially risky from a public and worker health standpoint) removal envisioned by the UK consultant, ASE prepared a Remedial Options Analysis (ROA) and Conceptual Remediation Plan that proposed the far less costly and far more protective alternative of in-situ phytoremediation of soil and groundwater.  It is anticipated implementation of the technology will begin in the Summer of 2008. 

Other recent projects include:

Little Falls Urban Renewal Agency, Little Falls, New York - Phase I ESA of future site of City of Little Falls Marina, Southern Avenue, Little Falls, New York.

Confidential client, Syracuse, New York - Phase I ESA of aqueous solvent formulator and batch outsource industrial parts cleaner, East Syracuse, New York.

Confidential client, Syracuse, New York - Engineering services for septic system and aerobic sewage treatment system rehabilitation at a 50+ unit mobile home park, Parish, New York. 

Confidential client, Syracuse, New York - Phase I ESA of a 21,500 sq. ft. bookbinding facility located in Syracuse, New York.
