Fill Site / Former Sand Mine
Phase II Environmental Site Assessment
City of Gary, Indiana
Our environmental team was retained to conduct a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of an active clean fill site located at the northeast corner of Morse Street and W. 21st Avenue in Gary, Indiana. The site is a former 80-acre sand mine, identified as the J-Pit, owned by the City of Gary, and operated by Beemsterboer Slag Corporation as a clean fill site.
KEY PROJECT ELEMENTS
Subsurface investigation activities to evaluate the fill included the advancement of six soil borings across the property with the use of an ATV drill rig to depths of 30 to 34 feet below surface grade.
Evaluated the types of subsurface fill materials through soil and groundwater sampling, using temporary monitoring wells and analytical testing to confirm or deny the presence of contamination at the site.
