Remediation at this site began just after the 4th of July break in New Bedford, MA. This particular site runs an entire city block, consisting of 3 distinct excavation areas.
To date approximately 6,000 tons of soil containing asbestos has been carefully excavated, handled, loaded, and transported offsite to an approved landfill.
When working with asbestos in an open environment such as this, dust control measures are put in place to protect the site workers and keep surrounding residents safe.
Work is expected to be completed by mid September. More updates to come!
