As part of the development team selected for the expansion of O’Hare International Airport, one of the world’s largest and busiest, INTERRA performed a Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessment of a 100-acre parcel for the airport’s proposed new international terminal.
Phase I work included a review of available government records, aerial photographs, topographic maps, and interviews with local government officials and owners of existing buildings. Once the review was complete, INTERRA prepared protocols for an environmental subsurface investigation and assessment. Phase II work involved drilling and sampling over 100 environmental borings, quarterly sampling of seven groundwater monitoring wells, an inspection for hazardous building materials such as mercury, asbestos and freon, a comparison of analytical data to the State of Illinois’ Tiered Approach to Corrective Action Objectives (TACO), the delineation of contaminated areas, and recommendations for cost-effective site remediation to keep the project moving ahead.
INTERRA’s work was successfully completed within an extremely tight schedule to accommodate client and City of Chicago project deadline requirements.
