USACE/Former Beltsville Agricultural Research Center/SIA Solutions
Our environmental consulting team was proud to provide services to facilitate the revitalization of a former 104-acre property in Beltsville, MD, that had been owned by USDA. The property, consisting of 23 buildings built in 1910, had been used for poultry research and quarantine purposes and was in need of extensive environmental assessment.
Our team conducted a comprehensive environmental site investigation to assess the presence of hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste, including asbestos, RCRA metals, PCBs, and low-level radioactive waste. During the investigation, it was revealed that due to the age of the buildings, asbestos, lead, lead-based paints, mercury, and PCBs were the main concerns and needed to be managed in accordance with environmental regulations.
Following the site characterization, our team completed a comprehensive environmental condition survey of the property to support the transfer process. This survey provided a thorough analysis of the current environmental conditions and potential environmental liabilities associated with the property, helping to ensure a smooth transition for the new owners.
Our environmental consulting services played a crucial role in the revitalization of this former Beltsville property, ensuring that the site was properly assessed and managed in a responsible and sustainable manner.
