News and Updates from Our Environmental Assessment and Remediation Team
SERVICE SPOTLIGHT: Agency of Commerce and Community Development Funding
The new City Market Co-Op in Burlington, VT, following remedial planning and construction.
Stone continues to provide expertise and guidance for cleaning up and redeveloping underused or abandoned properties. Stone collaborates with the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development's Brownfields Revitalization Fund. The Fund saw its largest investment last year, when Act 74 deployed $25 million in funding to characterize and cleanup brownfield sites across the state.
SERVICE SPOTLIGHT: Testing New Tools For PCB Extraction
PCB extraction in concrete slabs currently involves cutting and removing contaminated materials. Read a description of how Stone assessed the degree and extent of PCB contamination at a 20,000 square-foot building in Springfield, Vermont.
Stone will conduct a pilot test to evaluate the efficacy of removing PCBs from the concrete slab of a former manufacturing facility in Springfield, Vermont using the solvent extractant, CAPSUR®. This aqueous-based solvent system is developed for the extraction of PCBs in solid surfaces including wood, metal, asphalt, and concrete. If successful, this new method may drastically reduce remediation costs compared to demolishing and disposing building material.
UPCOMING EVENTS: The Science of PFAS, New England Brownfields Summits
The former Blodgett Oven Factory on the shore of Lake Champlain now the home of a mixed use development and business incubation space. Learn more about Stone's work on this site here.
Stone is proud to sponsor and participate in two upcoming events this spring.
