The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) used EnviroBlend to remediate soil contaminated with cadmium and remove it offsite. TCLP levels prior to treatment were leaching above the TCLP standards. The use of EnviroBlend helped NYSDEC save $30,000 while working to restore the Erie Canal Frankfort Section in New York.
The Erie Canal – Town of Frankfort Section site is part of New York’s Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Site (NYHWDS) Program, also known as the State Superfund Program. Contaminants of concern in the sediment and wetland soils were polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, and mercury. Key components of the cleanup included: dredging and off-site disposal of approximately 24,000 cubic yards of canal sediments; restoration of the excavated canal bed to promote the re-establishment of the ecological environment; imported soil fill and native plantings; and monitoring the restored areas for erosion, settlement, and growth of plantings.
