Industrial Marine Facility Demolition and Remediation
For over 60 years, this 42-acre property has served as an oil and gas pipe yard and shipping terminal. The primary project challenge was completing management of demolition and remediation prior to termination of the client’s lease without disrupting shipping activities. Additionally, the property is situated in a low-lying area abutting the Intracoastal Waterway and levee system, which is prone to flooding and requires special permitting. Langan completed soil and groundwater, regulated materials, and naturally occurring radioactive materials assessments; managed demolition of buildings and structures; developed and implemented remedial plans and a Self-Implementing Cleanup Plan; and completed and managed permitting of the project with the Department of Natural Resources, Office of Coastal Management, Army Corps of Engineers, and Local Levee District. We delivered the project within the required timeline and our client exited its lease without penalty after receiving No-Further-Action letters for 15 Areas of Interest from the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) Remedial Action and Corrective Action Program, a closure letter from LDEQ Office of Environmental Compliance, and a letter of acknowledgement from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region VI.
