Ferry Point Park Brownfield Redevelopment Project will redevelop a former landfill that is located adjacent to the Whitestone Bridge in the Bronx, New York. The site is bounded by the Hutchinson River Parkway, the East River, Schley Avenue, Emerson Avenue, and Balcom Avenue. The approximate 414 acre project site is one of the largest pieces of undeveloped parkland in New York City, and its redevelopment involves the rehabilitation of athletic fields, new comfort stations, a waterfront park, and a signature golf course.
The Ferry Point Park received its name from the ferried that historically travelled through the area from 1910 and 1939. New York City acquired the land in 1937, and the Department of Sanitation used it as a municipal waste site until the 1960s. Since then, filling operations ceased and the site was capped.
E2PM was retained to prepare a detailed Excavated Material Disposal Plan (EMDP) for the removal, testing, storage, handling, transportation, and disposal of unregulated and regulated soil removed from the planned excavations. The proposed soil excavations include: the Utility building area, the comfort station, and the rain shield buildings. The soil at the Ferry Point Park Brownfield Redevelopment Project have been characterized as having Volatile Organic Compound (VOCs), Semi-VOCs, pesticides, PCBs, and metals. E2PM performed the work in accordance with the following regulatory requirements:
- DOT 49cfr 172 -179; 387
- DOT e 8876
- EPA 40CFR 136, 257. 258. 261-265, and 271
