The Bellwether District

The former Philadelphia Energy Solutions refinery site is being redeveloped into the Bellwether District, a 1,300-acre industrial logistics, e-commerce, and life sciences center. Langan is the dedicated environmental professional for field observation and reporting for the owner to make sure the project meets the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Land Recycling Program (Act 2) and the Environmental Protection Agency One Cleanup Program objectives for implemented redevelopment activities. We are providing contaminated soil and groundwater management and tracking, waste disposal tracking, import fill management under PADEP’s Management of Fill Policy, unanticipated environmental conditions identification and resolution under multi-stakeholder input, and remedial investigations. Langan developed innovative digital solutions for daily field reporting, rapid GIS spatial mapping and deliverables, and web dashboards for collaboration, and provided drone surveys for earthwork tracking and cut/fill analysis.
