Remediation–Urban Site: Ashland Youth Center Soil Remediation Project


This urban site was spatially constrained not only by adjacent residential homes, but lay along a traffic corridor that was not conducive to the large volume of truck traffic necessary to move the material generated. PSEC worked diligently to ensure as little disruption to traffic as possible, including utilizing a complicated excavation plan that allowed access to the site by several interested parties throughout the project.
