ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES

As a long-time federal Department of Defense contractor providing environmental services, WCP has completed or is currently working on more than 180 Hazardous, Toxic and Radioactive Waste (HTRW)-related contract task orders. Environmental investigations include, but are not limited to, Defense Environmental Restoration Program (DERP) Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) projects, Environmental Condition of Property studies, environmental baseline surveys,  preliminary assessments, site inspections, remedial investigations, feasibility studies, remedial actions, closure and removal of aboveground and underground storage tanks, and hazardous materials inspections.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITION OF PROPERTY (ECP) OPTION 1, KALAELOA POTABLE WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
 

WCP prepared an ECP Option 1 report to support the disposal of the potable water distribution system located in Kalaeloa. The water system comprised three major components: two fee-simple watersource properties totaling 10.049 acres; the transmission mains and easements that connect the source properties with the distribution system; and the distribution system, itself. The ECP Option 1 report provided a consolidated and streamlined evaluation of existing environmental conditions on the Kalaeloa property to enable a determination of whether the property is suitable for disposal with appropriate notifications, covenants, restrictions, and land use controls.

PHASE I ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENT FOR AKANA PETROLEUM, INC.
 

WCP completed two Phase I ESAs for Akana Petroleum, one to assess an approximately 2.53-acre site located just east of Kawaihae Harbor and another for a 6.832-acres site in Hilo. The Kawaihae site serves as a truck terminal for Chevron petroleum products servicing four gasoline stations and small independent ranchers and boaters in West Hawaii.  Several ASTs containing diesel and unleaded fuel are located on the property.  Results identified a Recognized Environmental Condition (REC) and WCP recommended sampling be conducted to characterize and delineate the full extent of the subsurface contamination. The Hilo site contained a 14-pump self-service gasoline station and other petroleum-related and warehousing services.

 

LIMITED HAZARDOUS MATERIALS INSPECTIONS FOR SAINT LOUIS SCHOOL

 

WCP conducted a Limited Hazardous Material Inspections for two facilities at Saint Louis School—Newell Hall and the Gerber Field House. Newell Hall is a three-story concrete classroom building and is slated for renovation work. Gerber Field House is a one-story Quonset hut building with a corrugated metal roof and is planned for demolition to make way for a new athletic facility. The inspections were conducted to identify proper handling and disposal methods during renovation and demolition work.  The facilities were inspected for asbestos-containing building materials and lead-based paint.

 

PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT/SITE INVESTIGATION FOR VARIOUS TRANSFORMERS, MARINE CORPS BASE HAWAII

 

WCP completed this PA/SI for various pad-mounted electrical transformers located at MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay. Potential PCB contamination in soil and concrete existed as a result of possible past dielectric fluid testing practices and/or releases. Field and data acquisition activities at the 76 transformer locations evaluated included surface soil sampling; concrete-pad wipe-sampling; and sample labeling, recording, storage, and shipping. Surface soil (0 to 0.5 feet below ground surface) and concrete pad wipe samples were collected by WCP from each identified transformer site for analysis of PCBs as Aroclors. A minimum of eight discrete surface soil samples and applicable quality control samples were collected around the perimeter of each transformer concrete pad.

SITE INVESTIGATION AND REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION/FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR THE FORMER MAUI AIRPORT LANDFILL

 

WCP completed the SI in 2007; the objectives of which were to determine if any contamination existed at the site that may be attributable to U.S. military occupation and use; identify potential contaminants of concern; identify potential impacts to areal soils or underlying groundwater; and preliminarily define the extent of contamination and need for further investigation.  The purpose of the subsequent RI/FS phase of the project, which began in 2009, was to characterize the nature and extent of soil and groundwater contamination at the site, and evaluate appropriate remediation alternatives. Work included collection of soil and groundwater data to supplement findings of the 2007 SI, and utilized soil borings and the installation of groundwater monitoring wells for matrix sampling and analysis. A determination of the type and extent of contamination led to development of remedial alternatives: intrinsic bioremediation; encapsulation; excavation and off-site disposal; and ex situ treatment by thermal desorption or soil washing.

 

REMOVAL OF CONTAMINATED SOIL AT THE FORMER TRANSFORMER BUILDING, FORMER MAUI AIRPORT

 

Approximately 271 gallons of dielectric fluid were released when a transformer was vandalized during a copper theft at the former Maui Airport in Puunene. In 2005, WCP undertook the removal of PCB-contaminated soil from the site. WCP determined the horizontal and vertical extent of contamination using field screening with samples analyzed at a temporary field lab. Employing a grid system, PCB-contaminated soil was excavated and packaged into UN-certified bulk sacks and tri-wall boxes for transportation to an EPA-permitted disposal facility. As the work progressed, WCP tested soil samples to confirm that PCB concentrations throughout the site were below the 1 ppm project action level. Excavation eventually unearthed the concrete foundation of the former transformer building, which had to be demolished and broken into pieces small enough for loading and shipping to the disposal facility. Ultimately, 633 cubic yards of contaminated soil and concrete debris were excavated and removed.  The site was backfilled with approximately 915 tons of clean fill and compacted to grade.

REMOVAL OF UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS AND REMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED SOILS, VARIOUS ARMY FACILITIES

 

Work for this project included demolition, excavation, and backfilling to remove the specified USTs and all associated equipment; and site restoration, including pavements and landscaping. Tasks also included the collection of soil and water samples for testing to satisfy the State of Hawaii Department of Health, Technical Guidance Manual for Underground Tank Closure and Release Response. This scope of this project involved the removal and closure of USTs, demolition and disposal of a vault that housed two of the tanks, cleaning and disposal of tanks, cleaning and securing 3,000 feet of six-inch pipeline, characterization and/or remediation of eight UST manholes, and installation of one AST. All tank residue, product, sludge, rinsate, and contaminated soil were transported off-post for treatment and disposal.  Project sites included Fort Shafter, Wheeler Army Air Field, Schofield Barracks, Tripler Army Medical Center, Aliamanu Military Reservation, and Helemano Military Reservation.
