Remediation Project at the Former Belle Meade Army Depot in Somerset, NJ
The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) teamed with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to perform a series of environmental studies and several areas of concern were noted. Surface soil impacts were identified at six-residential properties that border the Former Belle Meade Army Depot. These properties were subject to remediation.
As general contractor, Banneker supervised the removal of trees and vegetation; clearing and hauling away tree/brush/debris which required construction of temporary haul paths between the dump site and rear access to the properties. Additionally, Banneker performed excavation by removing and transporting 1-foot of surface soil to a designated dump site for staging. The last phase of construction involved restoring the remediated areas with six-inches of clean fill and six-inches of top soil; replacing vegetation with grass; restoring fencing or installing new fence along the site boundary with installation of parallel silt fence to discourage further migration of surface sediment.
