Environmental Site Assessments at the Jeffersonville Granary, Jeffersonville, Vermont

In June 2019, Stone was contracted by the Lamoille County Planning Commission (LCPC) to complete a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) for the then owner of the former Jeffersonville Granary in anticipation of selling the property for commercial use. Stone performed a Phase I ESA in accordance with ASTM E1527-13 and identified Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) associated with the property including the presence of an out-of-service, 1,000-gallon fuel oil underground storage tank, past and current use for refrigeration systems maintenance, and automotive repair. The property is immediately adjacent to a former railroad corridor. Based on these findings, Stone completed a Phase II ESA for the LCPC and a prospective purchaser that included a UST closure assessment, as well as remedial assessments for vapor, soil, groundwater, and building materials. The Phase II ESA identified that past land use resulted in impacts to the building slab from PCB contaminated hydraulic and cooling fluids. Stone evaluated various remedial options and ultimate developed a Corrective Action Plan and Self-Implemented Cleanup Plan to perform targeted removal of PCB-contaminated concrete and wood.  Stone assisted the current owner (Lamoille Build, LLC) with cleanup funding applications and administered an open solicitation for cleanup activities.  Cleanup activities are currently underway with an anticipated completion by early fall 2023.
