Chris has particular expertise in the assessment and remediation of sites impacted by mercury, such as former chlor alkali manufacturing facilities, including those sites with impacted sediments. For example, he served as the Project Manager for the preparation of remedial action work plans, permits, and design and construction documents for the Ventron/Velsicol Superfund Site in New Jersey. The project entailed excavation and off-site disposal of over 50,000 cubic yards of mercury-impacted soils; installation of a 1,300-foot-long, 30-foot-deep cut-off wall; wetland restoration; and placement of a 19-acre, single-layer cover system.
