Black & Veatch was tasked to implement the remedial design (RD) that was prepared by another consultant a few years earlier. Recognizing that things can change during a 3-4 year gap, Black & Veatch was prepared for changed site conditions. The need to confirm previous ground water plume maps resulted in several changes to the slurry wall alignments. Approximately 10 times the quantity of buried concrete debris was encountered than was known during the RD.
Under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 4 Remedial Action Contract, Black & Veatch performed environmental consulting services at the Camilla Wood Preserving Site. The Camilla Wood Preserving Site is approximately 40 acres in size, was constructed in 1947 and operated under various names until 1991 when Camilla Wood Preserving Company filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy and wood treating operations ceased.
Black & Veatch has provided services at the Omaha Lead Site for EPA Region 7 since 1999 under both the EPA Response Action Contract (RAC) and the Architect-Engineer Services (AES) Contract.

The Railroad Avenue site consists of chlorinated volatile organic compound (CVOC) groundwater contaminant plumes caused by historical releases of PCE and TCE that have occurred at the site. The data produced during the RI identified two separate source areas that are currently managed as two operable units (OUs): the northern plume (OU1) and the southern plume (OU2). The source area of the OU1 plume was approximately located along Railroad Avenue in West Des Moines, Iowa.
Gavins Point Dam is the southernmost dam of the six large dams on the upper Missouri River.

Coordination efforts were the responsibility of experienced Task Order managers throughout the group. Project elements included:
The intent of this project is to protect a residential area in Miami-Dade County from increased water elevations that will result from the Everglades National Park Water Deliveries and Restoration Project.
