Highground was contacted by the NYS Department of Parks, Recreation and Historical Preservation. We are working with the owner’s representative ARCADIS to execute remedial actions on the soil at the former North pool at the Rockland State Park in Valley Cottage, New York. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s) were identified during the pool modernization activities.

Highground’s work includes excavation, transport and disposal of contaminated soil. Apparently, it was found that the pool paint and caulking contained PCB’s. The objective is to meet the NSDEC Residential Use Soil Cleanup requirements. The project involves the removal of approximately 7000 tons of PCB impacted soil associated with the 24,000 square foot pool. Highground has mobilized to the site to begin clean up. All soil will be disposed at a RCRA Subtitle C Landfill.
