Detection, Decontamination, and Decommissioning

Phase 1: Site Survey

Phase 1: Site Survey

3D EnviroLogics offers complete solutions from planning decommissioning strategies to monitoring decontamination and providing measurable post-decontamination results.  We also provide technical services unique to our field of expertise. 3D EnviroLogics provides technical surveys, exit strategies, data management services, and many other custom solutions for our clients.

There are 2 main regulatory statutes- EPA (40 CFR 262.11) requires the determination of hazardous waste in construction debris; and OSHA (29 CFR 1926.850e) defines safety, health, and environmental regulations for construction. These require identifying and mitigating hazards that could affect workers and the environment before, during, and after demolition/construction.

We develop decommissioning strategies unique to the facility based on the client’s ultimate objective. We can tailor our plans for property transfer or sale, property function changes, industrial clean-up efforts, demolition, and even remediation of public lands.

Phase 2: Sampling for Hazards

Phase 2: Sampling for Hazards

The 3DEL method of dealing with projects ensures due diligence for complying with the above statutes.

The 3DEL Decommissioning Process:

  • Phase 1: Initial Feasibility Assessment (historical interview, document searches, and facility inspections).  This phase identifies which hazards are likely to exist and whether or not they should be sampled.
  • Phase 2: Facility Characterization Assessment (preparation of sampling strategy plans and actual sampling for hazardous contaminants).
  • Phase 3: Decontamination and Selective Demolition (the implementation of our clean-up processes, especially involving mercury).
  • Phase 4: Post-Decontamination Clearance Testing (how clean is “clean”, confirming project goals were met)

Phase 3: Decontamination Activities
