In March of 2010, the City of Jacksonville began remediation for the 5th & Cleveland Incinerator Site, located in an area just north of the intersection of 5th and Cleveland Streets, approximately one mile northwest of downtown Jacksonville.  The remediation has included several city parks, Blodgett Villas and numerous single-family residences.  Remediation for parts 1 thru 64 started in 2010 and was completed in 2016.  5th & Cleveland was awarded the 2013 Florida Chapter American Public Works Association Environmental Project of the Year Award.

The 5th & Cleveland Site remediation consisted of the removal of approximately 176,300 cubic yards (264,491 tons) of soil impacted with ash containing lead, arsenic, dioxin and PAHs above the project Remedial Goals. Contaminated soil was removed in order to provide a two-foot barrier within the impacted pervious areas across the site, stockpiled to undergo TCLP sampling/analysis, and properly manifested for transport to Trail Ridge Landfill for re-use as initial cover at the landfill.  

During the remediation, ETM in concert with the contractor worked meticulously with each individual property owner to ensure that their property was remediated to their satisfaction as well as to meet the requirements of the City/EPA Consent Decree. Each property was surveyed and inspected before and after remediation to ensure the restoration of the property to the pre-remediation condition or better.

Upon completion of each parcel, ETM prepared an individual completion report for EPA approval.  The completion reports included the pre- and post-construction survey with the property owner, photo documentation, a confirmation sampling plan, an as-built plan and an institutional control plan.
