Kettle Point, Rhode Island

Lead Project Engineer, ARCO Products Co., Los Angeles, CA                 1995  1997

ARCO had a 22 acre terminl terminal located on Naragansette Bay, RI at Kettle Point.  My six-year involvement included the removal of all structures on site and a complete remediation of on-site soils.  Because the adjacent property also had petroleum contamination in the ground water (after soils were excavated and remediated), on-site rock was used to back fill below the water table to protect clean soils from re-contamination.  Soils were remediated with land farming techniques using the the old tank farm areas.

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management issued a closure letter for this site after remediation was completed.  The site is now slated for redevelopment by the Waterfront Redevelopment District.
