the removal of hazardous
materials from the 1950s
manufacturing site.
It also involves the re-

the removal of associated
utilities equipment, pipe-

and process plant structures,
tank farms, workshops, lab-

railway lines as well as a
primary school and busy
public highway, presented
many additional logistical
considerations
including
the removal of 2 bridges
spanning the river.
