Excavated Materials Disposal Plan Review
CORE was selected by the New York City School Construction
Authority’s Industrial & Environmental Hygiene Division to perform
ongoing reviews of numerous Contractor prepared excavated material
disposal plans (EMDPs). Specifically, CORE was contracted to determine
compliance with the specifications and Environmental regulations.
This includes but is not limited to determining recommended sampling
rates based on proposed disposal facilities, analysis of sampling data for
hazardous or petroleum based contaminants, determining adequacy of
proposed hazardous waste transporters, and reviewing sampling plans for
compliance to specifications.
CORE’s reviews have provided insight and clarification for the many
facets of excavated materials disposal planning and smoothed the way for
the approval of numerous EMDPs throughout New York City.
On November 5, 2015 the NYC Administrative Code was amended to
include the new Local Law 12 (LL12) that requires that the Department
of Energy (DOE) and SCA provide environmental data reporting to
constituents of the public schools, including charter schools. The law was
established in response to potential exposure concerns to air contaminants
in a leased school in the Bronx.
CORE assisted in reporting any environmental inspection, visual or tests,
conducted in or adjacent to a public school by or under direction of the
NYCSCA IEH Division that indicates a quantifiable result exceeding a
maximum regulatory level.
