Marcus Dairy, Sugar Hollow Road

BL Companies has performed extensive environmental investigation and remediation associated with the redevelopment of this former industrial site to a new retail shopping center in Danbury, Connecticut. Prior to initiating subsurface investigation, BL Companies conducted historical research, identified numerous environmental areas of concern, and developed a Conceptual Site Model as the basis for subsurface investigation. Phase II and Phase III Site Investigations were completed, which identified and delineated the extent of several releases of Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (LNAPL) associated with an existing diesel fuel above ground storage tank (AST), former diesel fuel and gasoline underground storage tanks (USTs), and an oil-water separator. Based on the degree and extent of the LNAPL releases, a Remedial Action Plan was developed in order to achieve compliance with the Remediation Standard Regulations of the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection and move the site through the Connecticut Transfer Act program. Site demolition and soil remediation were conducted in conjunction with redevelopment of the site as a retail shopping center anchored with a Whole Foods Market. New building construction is almost complete, with Whole Foods and several other retail tenants open for business. Remediation activities have included the excavation and off-site disposal of petroleum-impacted soil, encapsulation of petroleum-impacted soil under the new building in conjunction with the use of an Environmental Land Use Restriction, and monitored natural attenuation of groundwater. Post-remediation ground water monitoring is ongoing.
