The Town of Oyster Bay asked H2M to conduct a remedial investigation and develop a remedial design for a seven-acre portion of Bethpage Community Park, which it had acquired from Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation. Prior to initial construction of the park in 1962, the property was utilized for wastewater settling ponds and fire training.
Following the surface and subsurface investigation, H2M prepared plans and specs for the excavation and disposal of contaminated soils. All in all, 173,000 tons of contaminated soil and debris was removed from the site under H2M’s watchful eye. The project was completed in a timely and safe manner, with minimal disruption to the surrounding community. Despite the park’s location directly across the street from a high school, soil removal was orchestrated using 5,300 dump trucks without causing a single delay or inconvenience to school buses or students.
