Everett Smelter Site Remediation, Everett, Washington
Municon provided vibration monitoring of deep dynamic compaction ground modification work for Asarco Inc. The project involved removing the most contaminated materials, primarily arsenic, lead and other metals, from former smelter operations. Material with arsenic concentration above 3,000 ppm on the 600-acre site was excavated and taken off site for disposal. Once contaminants were removed, the site was restored with clean fill, and the area was prepared for reuse.
