A transformer fire resulted in the uncontrolled release of approximately 1,100 gallons of oil containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The release impacted surrounding soils, gravel, and a containment system consisting of a catch basin, piping, and an oil/water separator. Olympus excavated and loaded into roll-off containers 400 tons of contaminated soil and 300 tons of contaminated gravel. The roll-off containers were prepared for shipment and the contaminated material was transported to a Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)-approved disposal facility. Oil within the contaminated oil/water separator was recovered and pumped into drums for proper disposal. Approximately 35,000 gallons of water from the separator was treated using granular activated carbon and the separator was hand-cleaned using a PCB solvent.

RECEPTIVE, ADAPTABLE, AND PROACTIVE
“We worked with Olympus to demolish, dispose, and backfill two buildings containing hazardous materials. Olympus’ crew was receptive to our requests, adapted to changing site conditions, suggested ways to increase efficiency, and didn’t sway from their proposed cost. Together we changed the site from dilapidated hazardous buildings to a clean construction-ready property.”
