Remediation team set for Florida site

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Stauffer Management Company (SMC) officials announced the selection of the remediation team for the Stauffer Chemical Site in Tarpon Springs, Florida.

O’Brien & Gere has been selected as Stauffer’s construction manager for the remediation project.

Envirocon, based in Missoula, Montana, has been selected to perform the construction of the project, with Black & Veatch Special Projects Corp. to assist with construction oversight.

Cleanup is estimated to take eighteen months, which includes: the consolidation and capping of contaminated soils in the north and south parcels of the site; installation of a cut off wall to reduce movement of groundwater contamination at the site; and restoration of the eastern shore of Meyers Cove. The project schedule is currently being refined.
