The “Big Dig” in Boston will redirect traffic back through previously neglected areas of the city. Properties that once had little value are now worth redeveloping. An office, residential, and retail campus is planned for the site of the oldest electric generating plant in the city.
Cement-based solidification/stabilization (S/S) treatment was used to address lead- and petroleum-contaminated soils at the site. Excavations there found petroleum-based free product apparently released from underground storage tanks (USTs), as well as soils contaminated with heavy metals, apparently from ash fill.
