HGL’s Prominent Leadership on DoD PBR Projects
Over the past 15 years, HGL has become a Performance-Based Remediation (PBR) industry leader, successfully managing and executing single- and multiple-installation PBR projects ranging in size from $5 million to $45 million under both RCRA and CERCLA. HGL has completed these projects for Department of Defense clients, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Army Environmental Command, and Air Force, and it has successfully managed performance risk and liability for them using various remedial technologies. Additionally, HGL has 27 years of experience executing firm fixed price projects with challenging milestone performance schedules. With their extensive experience executing PBR projects, HGL’s staff has developed expertise in negotiating and securing consensus on all aspects of environmental remediation projects from the investigation through closure (end state) phases. HGL’s strong performance on these PBR projects is evidenced by the “Very Good” and “Exceptional” ratings below.
HGL’s PBR Project Examples:
- Performance-Based Remediation at the Former Fort Ord, California: a former Army training facility with groundwater contamination linked to historical fire training activities
- Performance-Based Remediation at MacDill Air Force Base and Avon Park Air Force Range, Florida: two active Air Force installations with multiple sites requiring cleanup of various contaminants.
- Performance-Based Environmental Remediation Services at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois: an active Air Force installation requiring remedial actions at 20 separate sites,
- Environmental Remediation Services at Former Blaine Naval Ammunition Depot, Hastings, Nebraska: a Formerly Used Defense Site requiring remediation of groundwater contaminated with VOCs and explosive compounds,
- Removal Action at Umiat Test Well No. 9 at Umiat Air Force Station, Alaska: a Formerly Used Defense Site requiring excavation, transport, and disposal of PCB-contaminated soil, and
- Groundwater Treatment Plant and Extraction System Operations at South Jersey Clothing Company/Garden State Cleaners Superfund Sites, Atlantic County, New Jersey: EPA CERCLA sites contaminated with PCE and TCE.
