SES was hired to provide extensive environmental remediation, decommissioning, and demolition of an old coal powerhouse and stormwater treatment facility in Pontiac, Michigan.

The abatement activities included removals of friable and non-friable asbestos from the facility’s respirators and chillers. The bulk of the abatement work was located in a three-story tall boiler house unit. This abatement required strategic and specialized containment shelters alongside the exterior of the boiler house.

The remediation activities included the clean-up of the storm water treatment plant, including a 1-acre retention basin. This cleanup consisted of hazardous materials including: lead, PCBs, mercury, heavy metals, and industrial chemicals.

All waste and contaminated materials where then loaded and transported to an approved off-site facility.
