Envirologic provided brownfield and environmental services to the Houghton County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (HCBRA) in support of redevelopment of a Leaking Underground Storage Tank site in Calumet, Michigan. The approximately 28-acre site was used as a bulk petroleum distribution facility and filling station for 50 years.
Envirologic supported a successful effort by the HCBRA in northern Michigan (Upper Peninsula) to obtain a Brownfield Redevelopment Loan ($400,000) and Grant ($490,865) to support redevelopment of the site with a 40,000-square-foot traditional supermarket and multiple ancillary small businesses. Redevelopment activities conducted by Envirologic included the following: BEA activities, demolition of existing structures, disposal of drummed waste and scrap tires, completion of a Due Care Site Investigation, removal of unregulated underground storage tanks, removal of contaminated and oil-stained soil, and preparation of an Act 381 and Grant/Loan Work Plan. Envirologic developed a bid specification package, organized the bidding process, evaluated bids, and presented recommendations to the HCBRA. The redevelopment required coordination with the developer, MDEQ, remediation contractors, and local unit of government in order to ensure that activities were conducted in accordance with the Act 381 Grant/Loan Work Plan and local ordinances. This project example illustrates Envirologic's ability to identify redevelopment challenges and prepare and implement strategies that help finance and overcome impediments to redevelopment. The new store opened for business in July of 2013.
