HGL Team Named Awardee for Scovill Landfill Remediation

In September 2023, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 1 awarded HGL a Remediation Environmental Services (RES) contract to remediate near-surface soils contaminated with metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at the Scovill Industrial Landfill Superfund Site (Scovill) in Waterbury, Connecticut.

Under this award, HGL and its partners Charter Contracting, LLC and GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. will excavate and safely dispose of contaminated near-surface soils, construct a protective soil cap, mitigate disturbed wetlands, and restore areas affected by the removal actions. The work is scheduled to begin in April 2024.

Led by Program Manager Andy Boeckeler, P.G. and Project Manager Lisa Tholl, the HGL-Charter-GZA team brings decades of combined experience successfully remediating Superfund sites both nationally and within New England. The team will leverage this experience to support EPA’s mission to protect human health and the environment, and return contaminated land and groundwater at Scovill to productive use.

The Scovill landfill remediation is the first project awarded in EPA Region 1 under this RAF/RES Multiple Award IDIQ, which spans three EPA regions across 13 states and two territories. The HGL-Charter-GZA team is honored to be conducting this important work on behalf of EPA.
