Remediated Soil: 148,737 Tons
Parcels Remediated: 216

In January of 2010 the City of Jacksonville began remediation for the Browns Dump Site, located in an area north of 28th Street and west of Moncrief Road. The remediation included the former Mary McLeod School site which is currently operating as a community center, Moncrief Village and many single-family residences. Remediation was started in 2010 and was completed in 2016.­

The Browns Dump Site remediation consisted of the removal of approximately 99,160 cubic yards (148,737 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.

The project included the remediation of the former Mary McLeod School site which included excavation and replacement of the soil around the former school buildings and placement of a two-foot soil cap on the open area on the north end of the school site. 

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.
