ECC has completed thousands of environmental projects with oversight from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VDEQ), Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), and D.C. Environmental Health Administration (DCEHA). ECC prides itself on working closely with clients and regulators to achieve the goals of both parties in a timely and cost-effective manner. Summaries of a few of these projects are presented below.
ECC, Inc. played an integral role in the redevelopment of the former Camp Simms military reservation in SE Washington, D.C.
Historically, portions of the Camp Simms military reservation were used as target range facilities, ammunitions dumps, and a defensive battery. The site is currently owned by the District of Columbia Department of Housing and Community Services. ECC executed Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments to comprehensively characterize the former Camp Simms facility, and developed a Corrective Action Plan for redevelopment of the site. The former Camp Simms facility is currently undergoing residential and commercial redevelopment through the D.C. Voluntary Remediation Program.
ECC, Inc. worked with our client and the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) to expedite the redevelopment of the former Price Brothers Aberdeen Plant facility in Harford County, Maryland.
The facility was formerly a concrete manufacturing plant and was the subject of a leaking underground storage tank (LUST) investigation by the MDE, Oil Control Program. ECC performed extensive soil and groundwater sampling at the Price Brothers facility, and developed and supervised implementation of an Action Plan for remediation of the site. The facility has since received a notice of compliance and is currently undergoing commercial and industrial redevelopment.
ECC, Inc. assisted in the redevelopment of the U.S. Army's former Cameron Station following closure of the military installation under Base Realignment and Closure.
Environmental investigations perfomed by the U.S. Army as part of the Findings of Suitability of Transfer for the base discovered petroleum and chlorinated solvent contamination in soil and groundwater. ECC provided additional subsurface investigations of the property and performed environmental remediation and monitoring during construction activities. Cameron Station is in the final stages of redevelopment.
