Investigation and Remediation To complete the remedial investigation for the inactive manufacturing facility, Black & Veatch provided services such as Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment, a feasibility study, and environmental sampling leading to a Record of Decision (ROD). The Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessments determined that facility activities resulted in contamination of soils with metals, including chromium and hexavalent chromium. In addition to soil contamination, groundwater and surface water were contaminated with hexavalent chromium, the main contaminant of concern at the site. It posed a threat to the sole source of drinking water in the area. In order to eliminate this threat, Black & Veatch constructed and implemented a groundwater treatment system. As of 2017, over 10 million gallons of contaminated water has been remediated, returning it to the environment as clean water. The groundwater remediation system continues to remediate contaminated groundwater at a rate of 100 gallons per minute.

These are easy to communicate on a community level, but have more specific benefits when installed at military applications. Following on from U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) initiatives aimed at deploying more renewable energy, the cost-savings, distributed energy resource (DER) applications and energy security benefits be gained cannot be overlooked. Microgrids Boost Energy Resilience and Independence at Military Installations The Department of Defense has committed to deploying 3 gigawatts of renewable energy throughout military installations by 2025. Military bases all over the world have taken a proactive approach in achieving these goals, with many implementing solar photovoltaic generation.
