The Cherryville Recycling and Disposal Facility is located within the Regional District of North Okanagan. XCG prepared the landfill closure design brief, including final contours, evapotranspiration cover, soil balance, erosion and sediment control, surface water management, leachate management, landfill gas management, end use, and environmental monitoring program.
XCG was retained by Barnes Group Inc. (BGI) to conduct site assessment and remediation activities at a former automotive component manufacturing facility located at 3100 Mainway, Burlington, Ontario.
XCG was retained in 2009 to undertake the detailed design, tendering, construction oversight and contract administration for Phases 1, 2, and 3 of the landfill gas collection and flaring system at the Tom Howe Landfill.
XCG was retained by Atlas Copco Canada Inc. (ACCI) to conduct site assessment and remediation activities at an industrial facility located at 1157 Blair Road, Burlington, Ontario. Previous environmental investigations completed by another consultant identified the presence of elevated concentrations of chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs) in both the shallow overburden and deep bedrock water bearing zones at the site.
XCG was retained by our client (developer) to assist with the characterization and management of numerous soil stockpiles identified on-site. XCG conducted characterization activities in accordance with the stockpile sampling requirements presented in Ontario Regulation 153/04, in order to satisfy requirements necessary to obtain a Record of Site Condition for the property. XCG prepared a soil management plan for the contractors to follow and for the client to have on file.
Achieving remediation site closure can be challenging, time consuming, and costly. Treatment train approaches are often a practical means to address difficult remediation sites. The optimal approach to soil and groundwater clean-up often requires the use of multiple technologies either sequentially or concurrently to achieve the most cost-effective approach throughout the entire life cycle of cleanup at a project site.
XCG was retained by Leggett & Platt Inc. (LPI) in 2006 to provide engineering services in relation to the investigation of soil and groundwater quality and subsequent remediation of a former industrial facility, located at 66 Jutland Road, Etobicoke, Ontario. Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) activities completed by XCG between 2006 and 2007, identified the presence of elevated concentrations of chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs) within the shallow overburden soil and groundwater at the site.
Successful Environmental Due Diligence Assistance to meet Client’s Environmental Condition Waiver Deadline
Recently, XCG successfully assisted a purchaser make an informed business decision about moving forward with a purchase/sale agreement. The environmental work included a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and follow-up Phase II ESA to assist in understanding the environmental site conditions and risks.
A Schneider Foods transport truck (owned by Maple Leaf Foods Inc.) was involved in a collision while enroute to Brantford, Ontario. The transport truck was struck by a vehicle on the passenger side and the fuel tank was ruptured. As a result of the ruptured fuel tank, an estimated 620 litres of diesel fuel was spilled onto the asphalt and concrete curb spillway along the highway.
In September 2013, a transport truck owned by a USA-based hauling company rolled-over at an intersection outside of Fort Erie, Ontario. As a result of the truck roll-over, approximately 17,000-liters of diesel fuel was released to the asphalt road surface. During the release, a significant quantity of diesel fuel entered a catch basin at the intersection, which discharged to Frenchman’s Creek.
