Overview of Services

ERFS provides fixed cost delineations, remediations and community board services.


City of Jersey City –PPG Industries Chromium Cleanup Consulting.  ERFS serves as the City’s technical consultant in evaluating and approving remediation plans being implemented by PPG Industries under a court ordered settlement agreement.  Remediation plans include large scale soil removal efforts, dewatering and groundwater treatment, community air monitoring, and chemical injection activities all conducted by PPG and its consultant and overseen by the NJDEP and  Jersey City.  ERFS plays a key role in balancing the construction schedule and thoroughness of remediation with the needs of the City, the affected residents and the redevelopment plans.


Long Island City Substation Site for ConEd.
  ERFS implemented a pre-approved ISCO direct push injection design over a 16,000 square-foot contaminant source area. ISCO was selected to reduce total BTEX concentrations in soil and groundwater prior to installation of other groundwater remedial methods that were to be incorporated into the construction of the substation.  Due to the critical path for construction of this essential electrical distribution facility, project requirements included mobilization within 3 weeks of contracting, meeting the requirements of rigorous health & safety reviews, obtaining HazMat Storage and Use Permits from local fire department, coordination with simultaneous demolition activities and completion of injections at 81 individual locations within a two-week period.  Three treatment events were successfully completed in four months.  Substantial reductions in total BTEX were detected after the second treatment event in approximately half of the site monitoring wells. Project goals were met with a very short response time and substation construction proceeded.
