Feurring Commercial MUPD Remediation
Our client wanted to convert this 5-acre former plant nursery and agricultural area into a Multiple Use Planned Development. In addition to the development of the commercial property, the project also required new access roads and reconfiguration of the stormwater ponds on offsite County-owned lands. From historical uses, the area had contamination of agrichemicals like arsenic and dieldrin, and two parcels had been previously closed with Declarations of Restrictive Covenant (DRCs), which prevented site development.
WGI performed updated contamination testing, and to solve a soil balancing problem between the two parcels, developed an innovative soil management plan which allowed the soil to be moved from one parcel to the other despite having two different landowners. The drainage design included underground Contech storage trenches, which required analysis to verify the new stormwater management system would not spread existing groundwater contamination. WGI prepared an amendment to one of the DRCs to document the new stormwater management system. WGI conducted all site engineering and environmental work.
