Contaminated Soil Excavation & Disposal

The excavation and disposal of contaminated soils may be required as part of an EPA-mandated site clean-up or in conjunction with new construction. In either case, the scope of the overall project often involves other works, such as:

  • Containment of an isolated zone of contamination before excavation can be accomplished
  • Perimeter containment of  large areas of contamination
  • Site dewatering and pumped water treatment
  • Excavation support for new construction

Moretrench has the capability of accomplishing any of these project objectives, using techniques such as ground freezing, slurry trenching, deep well, wellpoint and eductor system dewatering, and various earth support systems. This ability to undertake other aspects of the overall work in addition to contaminated soil excavation and removal can realize both cost and scheduling advantages to our clients.

Moretrench personnel are experienced in the special requirements of the handling and disposal of contaminated soils. Our project management and site crews involved in environmentally sensitive work undergo comprehensive Health & Safety training including:

  • OSHA 40-hour HAZWOPER training
  • OSHA 8-hour annual refresher training
  • Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) training
  • Hazard communication training
  • Respiratory protection training
