Vermont Fish and Wildlife Dept. Firing Range, VT
Overview: Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department operates shooting ranges at the two State Conservation Camps located at Buck Lake and Camp Kehoe near Lake Bomoseen as well as two informal shooting ranges. The Department contracted MT2 to support its management of these ranges to provide for ongoing operations in a safe, enjoyable, and environmentally sustainable manner.
MT2 Services: MT2’s tasks included 1) visit to each existing and proposed shooting range sites, (2) description of current conditions and site usage, and (3) recommendations and suggestions pertaining to firing range upgrades, safety, environmental stewardship of the sites, and range operations & maintenance.
Firing Range Remediation
Maricopa County Sportsmen’s Firing Range, AZ
Overview: MT2 was contracted by Maricopa County Flood Control District to mitigate potential physical, occupational, and environmental hazards associated with high concentrations of lead and other metals in firing range soils/berms and in achieving closure and obtaining a finding of No Further Action (NFA) for the range in compliance with Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (AZDEQ) requirements.
MT2 Services: MT2 provided demolition, excavation, soil stabilization treatment with ECOBOND®, and transportation and disposal.
Outcome: A total of 8,000 cyds of soil was excavated from the site during the remediation activities; of which 5,100 tons were treated and disposed as non-hazardous, providing significant cost savings for MCFCD. In addition, MT2 recovered 50,000 lbs of lead shot for recycling and provided the recycling funds to the County as a project off-set.
Closure & Remediation
NYS OGS Mid-Orange County Correctional Facility Firing Range, NY
Overview: MT2 was contracted to provide turn-key firing range closure and remediation of the NYS Mid-Orange County Correctional Facility firing range.
MT2 Services: MT2 project tasks included: Underground Utility Locate, Erosion and Sediment Control, Clearing and grubbing, Excavation of 4,600 tons of soil, soil screening, ECOBOND® Pb treatment of 3,600 tons of soil, Characterization of soils to determine disposition (disposal or onsite re-use), Post-Excavation and Post-Treatment sampling, Off-site transport and disposal of solid waste or Beneficial Use of Soils, and Site restoration (return soil to site, final grade, seeding, demobilization).
Contaminated Soil and Sediment Remediation
Northborough Former Fish & Game Site, CA
Overview: MT2 was contracted to perform soil and sediment remediation associated with high concentrations of lead and arsenic in soils at the former Northborough Fish and Game site in compliance with Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and US EPA requirements.
MT2 Services: MT2 completed excavation, treatment with ECOBOND® of arsenic and lead-impacted soils/sediments and transportation and disposal. Tasks include 1) Site preparation and pre-remediation tasks including erosion controls, preparation of access roads, clear vegetation, de-watering, installation of a temporary swale and stream diversion; 2) Bench scale treatability testing, to determine the appropriate amount of ECOBOND® Pb and As to be used to reduce leachable levels of metals in the soil and sediment to below RCRA thresholds; 4) In-situ chemical treatment soils exceeding RCRA hazardous waste levels with MT2’s ECOBOND® technology rendering them rodnon-hazardous for disposal; 5) Excavation of contaminated soil and sediment up to approximately 2 feet below grade; 6) Transportation and disposal to a nonhazardous landfill for ECOBOND® treated soils; 7) Removal and off-site management of clay pigeons; and 8) Final site restoration and demobilization including restoration of wetlands in accordance with the wetland restoration protocol and applicable permits and approvals.
