US Army Badger Ammunition Plant
Under this contract, we executed comprehensive support for a large, Restoration, Conservation, and Recovery Act (RCRA) – and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) – complaint Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS). These services included initial site investigations, design services, landfill construction, long-term operation and maintenance (O&M), and closure. Our efforts supported full site closure and transfer of the property from the Army to other federal agencies.
The SpecPro Group self-performed environmental remediation and restoration activities on 7,500 acres of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant (BAAP) site in Baraboo, Wisc., as part of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). This included the demolition and remediation of over 2000 structures totaling 1.7 million sq. ft, which were heavily contaminated from explosive and propellant manufacturing, as well as acid production, solvent rectification, waste treatment, and other industrial support processes.
As part of these restoration activities, we designed and implemented a large scale groundwater investigation program which included RCRA Facility Assessment/Investigation (RFA/RFI) through Decision Document (DD) development and implementation. We also performed long-term remedial action operations and maintenance (O&M) of the on-site Groundwater Treatment Plant (GTP) for seven years and successfully transferred the site to the Bluffview Sanitary District in 2011.
