Firing Range Remediation
Eagle performed the remediation of two firing ranges. Phase one included the demolition of a metal enclosure which covered the range backstop. The metal enclosure was processed and transported to a metal recycling facility.
Once the enclosure had been removed, Eagle excavated the contaminated soil, segregating the soil based upon the locations and various levels of contaminants as identified by the engineer. Samples were collected from the soil by the engineer and based on those results a treatment method was established to stabilize the soil. Eagle incorporated a stabilization agent into the soil. Following stabilization, additional samples were collected to confirm the stabilization achieved the desired results. The soil stabilization was effective and allowed the soil to be classified as class II non-hazardous waste.
Phase two consisted of remediation of the second and larger firing range. This site included the excavation, segregation, screening and stabilization of several thousand cubic yards of soil. Additionally, Eagle constructed a cell where low level impacted soils were deposited. Following the placement of the impacted soils, the area was graded to the engineer’s design and geotextile fabric was installed over the cell. Eagle placed gravel over the footprint of the waste cell to stabilize the surface. Once the soil had been stabilized it was transported to an approved disposal facility. Following the removal of the contaminated soil, Eagle backfilled the excavations, spread seed, installed permanent erosion control features, fencing and warning signs. The project was completed safely, ahead of schedule and under budget.
