Featured Project

Brantford, ON

Milestone Environmental Contracting Inc. was awarded a contract to provide environmental services for two properties in Brantford, ON. The remedial strategy developed for the sites involved removing Petroleum Hydrocarbon (PHC) impacted soil through excavation and off‐site disposal and in‐situ treatment of Trichloroethylene (TCE) impacted areas via abiotic reduction through Zero Valent Iron (ZVI) amendment using mechanical soil mixing to effectively distribute ZVI into the TCE impacted zone.

Type of Work
  • Soil and Groundwater Remediation
Key Services
  • Excavation and Disposal
  • In-situ Remediation Technologies
  • Water Treatment
  • Brownfield Redevelopment
Key Highlights
  • Soil mixing strategy employed at the site was designed to ensure adequate distribution of the ZVI within the soils to minimize odours and off-site adverse impacts.
  • Soil mixing equipment delivery system with an integrated GPS system ensuring the reagent was delivered in the correct quantity in the correct location.
  • Due to restrictions at the property line, a 2-metre narrow corridor was completed through a ZVI injection program consisting of 20 temporary injection points spaced approximately 1.8 m apart.
  • To ensure there were no off‐site adverse impacts, an air-quality monitoring program was implemented consisting of VOC monitoring, particulate matter monitoring, noise monitoring and a meteorological station
