Glastonbury-East Hartford Magnet School

Fuss & O’Neill was contracted to address contaminated soils at a former tobacco processing plant that contained elevated concentrations of pesticides, and potentially leaking underground storage tanks. The town required removal of all soils with detectable levels of pesticides unless such soils were to be covered by the proposed building.

Fuss & O’Neill scientists completed a comprehensive three-dimensional characterization of the extent of pesticide impact to limit the volume of soil to be excavated. We oversaw the removal of three large underground storage tanks and associated oil-impacted soil.

Our team addressed the adjacent daycare’s concerns related to the generation of potentially contaminated dust during construction. We also published a closure report documenting full remediation of the property prior to any new construction.

The aggressive remediation project provided a safe site to build a new Glastonbury-East Hartford Magnet school.
