The 2021 field season is upon us and has gotten off to a roar of a start.
Out on Level Island, Alaska, we’ve been working with the FAA to execute a project that was first scoped as the removal of ~140 cy of contaminated soil/debris in two weeks, but quickly turned into a two-month project to remove ~2,500 cy.
The contaminated soils are the result of decades of waste accumulation that occurred when this FAA facility was once staffed with 20 people.
Now, it’s certainly not uncommon to encounter a change in soil removal quantities especially in remote locations where site history and uses are not always well documented/known.
But this project takes the cake!
Yet our well-oiled team of professionals took the change in stride as evidenced in these words by the FAA’s Environmental Program Manager:
“…[Brice Environmental] brings a lot of the science as well as the labor force to the project…and you know, they readily went from a really small project into a really big project. They handled that REALLY well for us and I think we’re all really fortunate to have had them onsite.”
Level Island is now host to an automated flight navigation aid system that supports aircraft travel across Southeast Alaska.
