However, a hasty RCRA Facility Assessment results in too many open questions and poorly framed defenses, which regulators use to leverage more expensive investigations and remedies that may be necessary.
Large parts of a century-old facility were man-made, consisting of fill materials placed in Lake Michigan. Free petroleum product was present beneath parts of the site, necessitating RCRA cleanup.
BBJ Group professionals were responsible for designing and installing systems for free product recovery. Within six months, free product in an area impacted by heavy fuel was reduced from 1.5 feet thick on the water table to only a sheen.

By completing site investigations, potential real estate purchasers and sellers are able to ascertain the environmental quality and “as-is” value of the property.
BBJ Group managed cleanup of a former glass manufacturing site within the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) program. Before BBJ Group’s involvement, progress was stalled after years of disjointed investigations. BBJ Group implemented an aggressive site-wide approach to move the cleanup forward by (1) properly identifying areas of concern through consolidation of historical information with new soil, groundwater, and vapor sampling data, and (2) designing remedial actions that met ISRA requirements while reducing overall project costs.
State agencies often have jurisdiction supplementing federal authority for cleanup of contaminated groundwater, surface water soil, and other media. To meet state and local requirements, BBJ Group professionals have investigated and restored more than 1,000 contaminated sites in North America.
