Summit provided profiling, removal and transportation for 153 tons of hazardous soil for Ames Construction for the Pit Property Development – Overheard Bridge to Lot 5 for The BNSF Railway Company in San Bernardino, CA.  The removal of the contaminated soil is in preparation for a new six span overhead bridge between Lot 5 and the recently developed Pit Property at the San Bernardino Intermodal Facility that will increase efficiency of this location. In addition to the removal of hazardous material, Summit will also be providing:

  • Safety Plans
  • Air Monitoring
  • Project Management

This scope of work ensures the safety the workers on site during this expansion as well as those in the surrounding area.

Summit has been awarded both environmental consulting and contracting services for the 144 million dollar Fullerton Road Grade Project. The  project that will eliminate the existing at-grade crossing in the City of Industry crossing the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) Los Angeles Subdivision and Metrolink (Riverside Line) at UPRR milepost (MP) 21.43. When completed, the project will eliminate delays for emergency responders, crossing collisions and as well as traffic congestion. Summits scope of work will include:

  • Transportation & Disposal for both hazardous waste material and soil for beneficial reuse.
  • Plan preparation & Training.
  • Air monitoring & Site characterization.
  • Report Preparation.

Removing contaminated soil and disposing of it properly prevents toxins from reaching any potential ground water supply and takes away all possibilities of the surrounding community being affected by it.

 

Summit provided both in charge environmental consulting and contracting services as part of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Placentia Avenue Grade Separation project.  This was the first of seven-grade separation projects along the BNSF/Orangethorpe Corridor being constructed in the Orange County Bridges program. The construction project consisted of lowering the Placentia Avenue roadway under the BNSF tracks to provide a grade-separated crossing. Construction of bypass tracks and a temporary detour road were necessary to construct the Project. Summit’s scope of services included the completion of the following plans; Site-Specific Health and Safety Plan, Sample and Analysis Plan, and Soil Excavation Management Plan.  The field services included soil sample collection along 5,300 feet of track, soil analysis and characterization, and stockpile sampling, in addition to the transportation and disposal for over 130,000 tons of non-hazardous and California Hazardous soil.
