NEWFIELD STREET REMEDIATION Middletown, CT :: In 2008, CME was hired to complete Phase II and III site investigations, and to develop and implement a Remedial Action Plan (RAP) for a former automotive facility that was being redeveloped into a commercial facility. The tight construction schedule required a rapid assessment and cleanup, while staying within budget and satisfying the CTDEP's Remediation Division. CME implemented the RAP, simultaneously delineating and remediating petroleum-impacted soil at several areas of concern. CME is currently completing the postremediation groundwater monitoring, and expects to achieve regulatory closure in the spring of 2010. CME's rapid assessment and cleanup allowed the site to be redeveloped without interfering with the aggressive construction schedule.
