COMMERICAL PROJECTS

WATERWAY CONSTRUCTION/ REMEDIATION

 

SHINN KELLOGG, LLC. (SK) Principals of KA has provided technical and environmental expert services for the pre-design, design, construction, and post construction of contaminated soil and ground water including design and construction.

 

Upland & Cedar River, Austin, MN. MGP Site (Confidential Client)

 

SK submitted on and was hired to provide remedial efforts on the above-mentioned project. However, SK was hired to redesign the above-mentioned project, as SK submitted an alternative design summary as part of the RFP submittal. Therefore, SK provided a design / build performance-based scope of work (SOW) for the civil and remedial execution on land and in the Cedar River. 

 

The entire Midwest, including the project from the begging was plagued by significant rain in the fall of 2018. SKs SOW entailed attaining all permits and surveying and photographing the existing conditions of the project site on land in in river, including photo documentation of sidewalks, curbing, utilities and nearby foundations of homes and businesses nearby.  Additionally, securing the working perimeter with particulate and visual controls, constructing run-on and run off, and job site traffic routes and controls, designing and building an on-site waste water treatment plant (intended for use during river sediment removal only), stripping existing topsoil, removal of MGP odorous source contamination and debris fields to an elevation of 1160. The pre-excavation removal action elevation was 1182 and when SK arrived at the site the ground water (GW) was at 1179, versus the original engineering firm RFP and Contract Agreement depicted GW elevation of 1177. SK was mandated to pre-excavate to 1177, forcing SK to begin its civil technique removal action 2’ below water…critical engineering firm mistake, as SKs sheetpiling and steel sheets were paid for and already delivered to the project. Starting over in materials would have cost hundreds of thousands and delayed the project 90 - 120 days.

 

The Phase 1 removal of 19’ (feet) of the non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) impacted soils were removed in the wet through the water column without dewatering using mechanical excavation techniques. An additional challenge became the significant light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPL) contamination that floated to the top of the water column during excavation disturbance that required skimming, collection and consolidation for final disposition or treatment of the LNAPL. SK designed a cost effect soil and sediment removal technique to accelerate closure for responsible parties (RP). The design is contrary to the industry norm of stop, NAPL contamination removal at the top of the water column…now it’s a groundwater problem. A total of approximately 21,398.04 tons of NAPL impacted soils were removed, managed (including solidified), and hauled off-site from the upland area for final disposition. Given SK was able to attain MGP impacted soil removal to elevation of 1160, the client was not required to install a significant cut off wall at the river’s edge to prevent NAPL recontamination. SK managed all water, collecting it and pumping it to its waste water treatment operation and discharging to the local POTW. Water treatment upland was not anticipated, however due to 3 weeks of rain and a higher than anticipated water table and the river, SK managed and treated 500,000 gallons of water and MGP NAPL. 

 

Phase 2, SKs next challenge was the unpredictable Cedar River that rises and falls quickly, therefore flash flooding occurs. SK was required to perform ALL sediment work from only one side of the river. SK designed to re-route one half of the river at a time to eliminate the challenging speed of the river (300-4,000 fps) through the areas of impact, during sediment removal. SK performed a deflection diversion to re-route the river around dredge management units (DMU) 1, 3 and 5 on the West side of the river. SK drove steel sheeting and plates, installed turbity barriers, sediment containment curtains and oil booms on the interior and exterior to contain the dredge management units (DMU), while removing up to 8’ of MGP NAPL impacted sediment. Upon completion of the removal action and restoration (existing river grade + or – 25 cubic yards throughout ALL DMUs) of the West side of the river, SK diverted and contained the East side of the river during removal of DMUs 2, 4, 6 and 7, while removing up to 6’ of MGP NAPL impacted sediments, while protecting the West clean side of the river. SK managed and treated 1.3MM gallons of NAPL and water. Phase 1 & 2 of the Cedar River sediment removal action quantity of sediment removed, managed (including solidification) and hauled off site for final disposition was 6,810.99 tons.

 

Not anticipated was a Phase 3. SKs follow on challenge, as it was discovered 900’ down river that another 1,000’ of sediment was impacted from 6” to 2’. SK redeployed down river in March of 2019, challenged with stationary and floating ice, cold weather conditions and a tight window to remove an additional 2,250 tons of MGP NAPL impacted sediment before the flash flood arrival. SK designed a deflection and shoring system, however the engineering firm wanted SK to perform the SOW with turbidity curtains alone and take on the liability of safety and contamination migration. SK designed a robust sandbag deflection wall. SK waited for the perfect window of river height and water speed to pull this design off, however it would save $500K, if successful. That window occurred and SK removed the sediment in 4 days, just 6 hours before the river increased its elevation by 9’ the next 24 hours. The work was performed in the wet, while managing NAPL in-situ with manpower, oil booms, pads and pumps to contain.

 

Upon conclusion of removal of NAPL impacted soils and sediment, SK restored the upland, including 1,200’ of river bottom and shoreline using specified sand, gravel, rip rap and some carbon core mats in certain locations. All removal activities delineation was performed first, by 3rd party surveying the existing horizontal and vertical extents of the site, including anticipated removal of impacted soils and sediment. SK performed ALL removal and restoration activities upland and in the river using excavators and dozers that were equipped with global positioning systems (GPS). GPS enabled equipment checked in daily, with an independent surveyor established base and verified its coordinates. The GPS enabled equipment then communicated with the Topcon instrumentation during operation to ensure vertical and horizontal positioning. Critical location marking points were established by the engineering firm and logged into the SKs equipment GPS software to provide the required as-built identified in SKs Contract Agreement. SK has completed Phase 1, 2 & 3, including final grading and built a prairie field in the summer of 2019 making this a green space. SK will go back in 2020 to ensure measured growth has occurred and or will occur.

Ashland Lakefront, WI. Mega-Site Superfund Site/Xcel Energy

SK Principal assembled a Team that was awarded the PRAP (pre-remedial action plan) consultancy on this estimated $100MM plus Superfund site. The project oversight was performed by USEPA and WDNR. Initial goal was to overturn the PRAP that mandated a hybrid removal consisting of significant dewatering and removal of sediment in the dry within Lake Superior. We performed upland and in-water assessments including focused feasibility input, PRAP, regulatory strategy, technical and legal team strategy, re-design of remedial design and remedial action plan (RDRA), performance sampling and verification plan (PSVP), health and safety plan (HASP), performance of soil and sediment treatment (pilot design on treatment of sediment), and further refinement of Lake Superior remedial action of 16 acres of contaminated sediment with long chain hydrocarbons (creosote and coal tars).  This also included consulting during the Record of Decision (ROD) and the Consent Decree (CD) negotiations. Additionally, the employment of an in situ chemical oxidation pilot study, including development of collaboration with EPAs SITE Program for the degradation and recovery of DNAPL at depth on the site. The site today has received regulatory approval to wet dredge the entire area in Lake Superior, saving Xcel Energy multi-millions.

 

Metropolitan Utility District (MUD) MGP Site

SK Principal completed the remediation of the Omaha 26 acre MGP site for Burns & McDonnell (BMcD) and the Metropolitan Utility District of Omaha. Mr. Kellogg had significant input in the redesign and implementation of the site. The project changed significantly when hazardous levels of lead in the soils were encountered requiring a work stoppage. He participated in a written modification to the remedial action plan (RAP) for lead solidification. Civil structual expertise was required to eliminate the need for high cost shoring near an active rail line and adjacent street. Significant demolition was employed to remove highly contaminated soils within robust MGP purifier infrastructure. The contaminated soil volume increased from 11,800 tons to 46,647 tons. A significant portion of work was performed in Level C due to high benzene or lead levels. Benzene reduction measures, such as continuous foaming, was required due to very low perimeter benzene requirements. Because of these significant changes Mr. Kellogg lived in the field 5 days a week for 2 of the months, to ensure minimal price change on a per unit ton basis. The total project bid was $76 per ton and ended at $70 per ton. This price included additional lead stabilization, multiple excavations, compaction and backfilling at separate times. The original scope of work (SOW) at $76 per ton used less labor and iron assets, as specified in Mr. Kellogg’s prepared technical execution plan (TEP). The work also included T&D of contaminated material to landfill. Cost savings to the client was in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Due to Mr. Kellogg's foresight, he built and bid efficiencies into the project for a larger SOW prohibiting significant spend creep.

Milwaukee, WI., Little Menomonee River, Moss American Superfund Site (Kerr McGee)  

SK Principal acted as the General Contractor while the SOW consisted of rerouting 4 miles of the Little Menomonee River and removing, “hot spots” in the river over 50 acres.  Manipulate portions of the new river channel to add sinuosity and promote river bank flooding, while removing 100,000 CYs of sediment. By-pass pumping was utilized for sediment removal in order to re-use portions of the existing river channel. Re-grading and restoration of the surrounding areas that consisted of wetlands was also performed. Sediment was managed. solidified and stored for future treatment. Additionally,excavation and classification of 100,100 CYs was segregated into various contamination levels for thermal treatment of the creosote contaminated soils. Contaminated water management and treatment was performed.

Metropolitan Airport Commission, Wetland Restoration Ham Lake, MN.

This SOW consisted of the creation of a high-quality wetlands on 120 acres that consisted of excavation of 420,000 CY, installation of a water control structure and creation of embankments. We treated the site with herbicides and replanted carious types of native wetland seed mixtures. Additional responsibilities consisted of erosion control and stormwater runoff compliance. PROBLEM SOLVING…the project was due to be completed in December through February, during freezing conditions. The project was

delayed by others until March, changing the anticipated frozen site conditions to water saturated site conditions. SK Principal designed specialized equipment that we were able to complete the project using low ground pressure hauling units.

Single Story to three (3) Story Buildings

Client – Multiple Utility Companies - References Available Upon Request

 

SK Principal was involved in building out of security and run-on and run-off controls were instituted. MGP structures were built from the early 1800’s through early 1900’s. Typically consisted of concrete, brick and brick and clay blocks. Significant below grade infrastructure demolition occurred within footings and foundations associated with the gas holders, separators, purifiers, tar tanks, naphtha tanks, smoke stacks.

 

General Contracted the Scope of work consisting of lead and asbestos abatement work that was subcontracted to Utility client approved abatement company. All required permits and notifications were submitted for and attained. Utility locates and abatement was completed. Prepared and executed work according to work and dust suppression plan. Before commencing structural demolition, remove all mechanical, electrical, piping, and miscellaneous appurtenances.  Demolition consisted of breaking up, cutting, filling of any holes resulting, final grading of the area, performing any other operations required, and the removal from the site of all structures and equipment (structures, substructures, floor slabs, equipment, tanks, pipes, fittings, electrical systems, light poles, wiring, underground conduits and wiring, isolated slabs, and sidewalks) as specified. Locating and abated various recyclables, including steel, wood, etc.

 

Examples of Specific MGP Projects;

 

  • SK Principal was involved with the design and implementation of the The Milwaukee Wisconsin Gas Historic 3rd Ward MGP Site SOW consisting of 2 City blocks of above and below grade demolition and remediation. A former glass manufacturing facility that occupied the former MGP sites one full City block was 2 stories in height located in downtown Milwaukee. Foundations and waffle floor were massive concrete buildouts not anticipated due to not having the availability of buildout documentation.

  • SK Principal Designed and built the The Norfolk, Nebraska MGP Superfund Site SOW consisting of a 3-story former MGP building and a 2-story building demolition in downtown. Below ground utility infrastructure, particular fiber optics 6’ away from dig depths of 21’ needed protection including shoring. Additionally, demolition of the 2-story building needed special attention as it was occupied on the other side of the common wall. We added an additional footing and tie in wall to existing common wall to preserve common. Upon completion, we modified existing common wall to specified City ordinance for use as an outside wall. Critical nature was if any portion of the common wall or roofline was disturbed, the entire building that was not within City code would have been required to be brought to within City code for occupancy.

LANDFILL WORK

 

MPCA WDE Hazardous Waste Landfill Remediation, Andover, MN. - On Going - 2020

Principal Frank Kellogg, has pro-bono consulted on this site to the City Council, Andover residents, the MPCA and Clean Harbors Environmental Services (CHES) over the last 26 years...including when the landfill was managed as a Superfund site by USEPA Regions 5. The site contains approximately 8,000 barrels of various hazardous and non-hazardous chemicals of concern (COC). The initial remedy was containment due to concerns of multiple COCs, health and safety of workers and residents and lack of technology for safe treatment or removal actions. Mr. Kellogg monitored quarterly ground water data and noticed in 2015 PCBs were detected. At that point Mr. Kellogg began his journey of methodically and behind the scenes advocating with the MPCA, Senators and House of Representatives to understand the significance of the upper aquifer contamination, surrounding residents and private/public wells. The Govenor, Senators, House of Reps and the MPCA got behind the remedial efforts and created a funding vehicle consisting of $20MM to remedy this remedial action.

The MPCA/Department of Administration went out for bid and CHES was awarded the WDE project to remediate. SK Teamed with CHES on the project is providing various services to the remedial action.

Superior/Onyx Seven Mile Landfill, Eau Claire, WI.

The SOW consisted of construction of a clay cap consisting of placement of geomembrane liner, placement of select granular fill drain layer, installation of gas collection/conveyance piping and site restoration. The project was designed by Ayers Engineering and specifications were met accordingly.

 

MPCA Maple Landfill, Pequot Lakes, MN.

The SOW consisted of installation of 308,500 Sf of 40 mil LDPE textured liner, erosion control, including erosion mat, pipe and media drainage systems. Additionally, a gas venting system was build according to specifications.

 

City of Rice Lake, Lemler Landfill, Eau Claire, WI.

The SOW consisted of installing a passive LFG venting system. We installed of 100,00 Sf of 40 mil PVC in a vertical trench encompassing a entire 10 acre perimeter. The liner was installed from a minimum of two Ft below static water level to the ground surface with depths of over 16 Ft. Upon completion placement of vacuum probes on each side of the trench to test for leaks and validate completion of SOW.

 

Monroe County Landfill, Sparta, WI.

The SOW consisted of excavation, loading, hauling and disposal of over 100,000 tons of refuse. Additional work consisted of segregation of waste, sampling, overpacking of drums and transportation and disposal of drums. Upon completion, site grading and

restoration was completed.

 

City of Eau Claire, Blue Island Landfill

The work consisted of restoration of a failing drainage control system and regarding of contour to prevent ponding of water. Heavy run-off created deep gullies on a steep slope, hence exposing refuse. We hauled, placed and compacted over 8,000 tons of topsoil and 20,00 SY of erosion blanket to remedy the problem.

 

MPCA, Olmstead County Landfill, Oronoco, MN.

The SOW consisted of construction of a gas extraction system. A total of 75 gas extraction wells were installed, including 22,547 Lf of gas extraction piping. Additionally, modification to the leachate collection system and installation of leachate tank, waste relocation, rock excavation, flare pad buildout, landfill capping and construction of surface water drainage features, as well as site restoration.

Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Park East Freeway, Milwaukee, WI.

Expansion of the freeway was complicated with encountering of various contaminated soils, therefore the SOW consisted of excavation, segregation, management thereof to define soil characteristics to identify a final disposition and approval from the WDNR. Utilization of GPS controlled equipment for placement and grading of the highway minimized disposal costs by allowing operators to adhere to precise grading tolerances, therefore reducing the amount of contaminated soils for landfill disposal.

USEPA, Scrape Metal Processing Superfund Site, Medford, WI.

The SOW consisted of sampling of lead impacted soils to determine whether or not the soils were to be removed for soils stabilization, including the dosing amount of the fixation admixture. Once the sampling delineated what soils required removal, mixing of reagent/fixation soils were stockpiled for further testing to characterize if the soils met TCLP testing to dispose of at a subtitled landfill. Areas throughout the site consisted of crushed battery casings that required higher mixing of reagent to ensure TCLP limits were met. Personal protection equipment (PPE) started out on the project in Level C and downgraded through high frequency of air monitoring to Level D.

USEPA/MPCA, MacGillis and Gibb Superfund Site, New Brighton, MN.

The SOW consisted of on-site construction of bioremediation piles for approximately 15,000 CYs of PCP and cPAHs impacted soils. This included grading. Pad construction, water collection system and an aeration system. The remedial process was considered as a pilot project to demonstrate whether or not enhanced bioremediation could achieve the goals prescribed by the Agencies. The PCP and cPAHs started out at approximately 200 mg/kg and achieved its remedial goals of less than 20 mg/kg in Minnesota winter months.

MPCA/MDA, Albert Lea, MN. Herbicide and Pesticide Formulation Facility

KA Principal worked to technically convenience the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) that a thermal treatment application could treat Aldrin, Dieldrin, Toxaphene, DDT, DDE, DDD, Endrin, etc., including low level dioxins. A DCI medium temperature thermal desorption (MTTD) unit was used that could attain primary treatment temperatures of up to 1,250 degree’s Fahrenheit in the primary desorber and 1,800 degree’s Fahrenheit in the oxidation chamber. He worked with the regulatory agency to identify air quality criteria of less than 12 ng/dscm TCDD/TCDF , in which the MTTD unit achieved. Additionally, the soil treatment goals were also achieved as set by MDA to utilize the treated soils as backfill in the excavations. Moreover, he acted as the General Contractor self-performing ALL civil and water treatment work.

Additionally, 1,000 CYs of general debris was excavated and disposed of at a landfill. Building demolition was also performed and 70 tons of hazardous waste was identified, managed, excavated and disposed of at a Subtitle C landfill. Final site restoration consisted of placement of an asphalt parking lot.

Norfolk, NE MGP Superfund Site for Centel and Sprint

SK Principal has completed a design/build construction and remedial application of the Norfolk MGP Superfund Site for Sprint, Centel, Black Hills Energy (RPs) and Black & Veatch (A&E firm) as a self-performing General Contractor (GC). This project contained high risk civil shoring stabilization techniques for deep excavations in an inner city downtown environment. The project consisted of managing odorous MGP contaminated material extraction, while eliminating movement of a close proximity (6’) major state main fiber optics corridor. Further challenged by a currently occupied 1880 era MGP building common wall (2’), while removing soils up to 20’ below grade. Contaminated materials were transported and disposed of at a solid waste management facility. Neither the RP’s, nor the A&E firm wanted to design the project, there by requesting Mr. Kellogg to do so. The project was designed and executed on-time and within budget, without any causation issues associated with the work to the satisfaction of Centel and Sprint.

Clinton, IA. MGP Superfund Site for Alliant Energy

SK Principal acted as the General Contractor for the project, performing all services except for perimeter air monitoring and sampling collection.  Provided all equipment required, including a 1,250ºF soil temperatures DCI Medium Temperature Thermal Desorption (MTTD) unit to treat the 121,000-ton project which was originally estimated by the engineering company to be 15,000 tons.

The project included the demolition of large foundations and other underground structure. A significant amount of brick, concrete, wood and steel pipe required specialized material handling and processing. The brick and concrete were decontaminated and placed in the bottom of the excavations as backfill.  The steel and wood were separated from the impacted soil and sent off site for recycle.  Due to the City of Clinton’s un-willingness to accept significant volumes of NAPL-impacted water was transported to the Cedar Rapids Soils Management Facility (SMF), treated through carbon units and discharged it into the local POTW. In many areas, the soil contained concentrations of PAHs in excess of 510,000 mg/kg. The soil required pretreatment and homogenization to prevent exceeding the process capacity of the MTTD unit and maintaining working parameters associated with its IDNR air quality use permit. In addition, approximately 7,000 tons of hazardous lead impacted soils was encountered that required a redesign, analyzing, segregation, soils stabilization, transport and disposal at the local landfill upon validating soil stabilization achieved its 0.36 mg/kg lead target treatment goal.

 

A comprehensive demonstration/testing program was completed during the project consisting of four MTTD test runs on 2 separate occasions. Once at the SMF and then on the IPL MGP site itself, after the MTTD unit was relocated to the MGP site because of the substantial increase in the project soil quantity.  Relocation of the MTTD saved Alliant Energy approximately $3 million dollars in transportation costs.  Feed and treated soil were sampled and analyzed for PAHs and the stack gas was sampled and analyzed for particulates, SO2, NOx, CO, and PAH emissions in accordance with USEPA protocols.  The average results from the four tests showed the average concentration of carbon monoxide in the stack gas was 5.5 ppmv and the average concentration of particulates was 0.032 gr/dscf corrected to 7% oxygen. A destruction

and removal efficiency (DRE) of >99.99% was demonstrated for all combined PAH compounds.
