A3E provides soil management solutions for our Clients. We design soil management plans and specifications for our clients that provide cost effective solutions for the soils being removed from or managed on site. We work closely with our Clients to provide the most cost-effective solution so the project budget is not blown on soil disposal. A3E provides oversight during the soil management process to ensure that soils are being handled correctly and documented properly.
A3E understands each site is unique and requires a designated plan that controls the movement of soils on site or disposal of soils off site. The most cost-effective solution for managing your soils is to keep them on site and avoid disposal costs. In many cases this can be implemented in conjunction with soil disposal if the materials can’t be completely managed on site. A3E will work with your architectural team to develop a plan that meets the project budget and meets any regulatory requirements that may be tied to the development process.
There is a significant cost savings between disposal of soils at a CCDD and Subtitle D Landfill. A3E provides services that includes historic background studies and soil testing to determine the soil characteristics on site. Our process includes a preliminary investigation for our Clients to determine ahead of soil removal as to whether their site qualifies for soils to be disposed of at a CCDD facility. We have Licensed Professional Geologists on staff that are able to certify soils that meet the IEPA values for CCDD disposal. If our Clients’ site does not meet the CCDD values, we work with them to manage soils on site or to complete a waste profile for Subtitle D landfill disposal. A3E has a close working relationship with both CCDD and Subtitle D Landfills and will walk our clients through the soil disposal process.
A3E’s staff is experienced in soil management and oversight services. Our staff has performed oversight services on sights all over the northern Illinois region at sites that include petroleum retail locations, substations, industrial locations and private development sites. Our services include soil vapor monitoring with Photoionization Detectors (PID) to ensure soils are being disposed of offsite properly or managed on site accordingly. Our staff understands the importance of meeting the soil management design and specifications. A3E provides Inspector Daily Reports to our Clients at the completion of each day detailing the activities of the required oversight work on site.
