Environmental Remediation Projects

    Former Brine Pit Closure, Decommission and Demolition- Odessa, TX

  • Approximately 1,430 cy of salt were relocated from the brine pit into an adjacent brine pit.
  • Obsolete steel and HDPE pipe conveyance lines were removed and blind-flanged during the closure of the brine pit. Various appurtenant structures were removed and segregated into disposal stockpiles.
  • Opal removed approximately 7,500 sf of multi-media liner containing six layers of materials and a leachate detection system was removed. The liner and other demolished materials were disposed as special wastes in an offsite industrial landfill.
  • Approximately 16,500 cy of borrow material was excavated, hauled, placed, and compacted in the former location of the brine pit. Grading and seeding were completed to prevent ponding of precipitation and direct storm runoff
