TRC entered into a contract with Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (Con Edison) for the assumption of liability and responsibility for the decommissioning, asbestos abatement, demolition, and environmental remediation and long term monitoring of properties owned by Con Edison, including the Waterside Generating Station. The properties comprise a total of 9.2 acres located in mid-town Manhattan and are collectively referred to as the “First Avenue Properties.
TRC’s RE Power team assumed full responsibility for the physical decommissioning of the sites. Work included the asbestos abatement, the decommissioning and demolition of all structures and the environmental assessment and remediation through to closure. The work was completed in 2008; the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) issued closure determinations for all sites. It was completed for a fixed price and on a schedule based upon the access to the site. Some of the scope highlights included:
In total, more than 100,000 tons of non hazardous soil was disposed of at beneficial reuse sites, over 1000 tons of PCB contaminated soil at designated landfills, 100 tons of lead-hazardous soil, and over 100,000 gallons of oily water as part of its hazardous waste management responsibilities.
