Examples of Recent Site Support
Poudre River Site, Fort Collins, CO
The site contains a 12-acre former municipal burn landfill that operated from the late 1930’s to
the early 1960’s.
Fuel-related groundwater contamination and the presence of coal tar in the Cache la Poudre
River were issues of concern. The proximity of a former manufactured gas plant (MGP) and a
gasoline supply station to the landfill prompted EPA Region 8 to conduct a Targeted
Brownfields Assessment (TBA).
The BTSC assisted with the development of field work plans using the principles of the Triad
Support included development of an evolving CSM to determine the source and extent of
contamination at a complex site, and input on cost-effective site characterization using
innovative sampling and field-based analytical technologies.
Rodeo Waterfront, CA
The Contra Costa Redevelopment Agency was awarded two $200,000 Brownfields
Assessment Grants for the Rodeo Waterfront. One grant is for "Bennett's Marina" and is a
hazardous materials grant. The second is for "Joseph's Fishing Resort" and is a petroleum
The major concern on the site is a tar pit from a petroleum refinery that was on or near the site
in the early 1900s. The refinery most likely burned in 1926. The site assessment also includes
sediment sampling in the marina to determine the feasibility of dredging the marina and
restoring the site to its historical marina use.
The BTSC provided support in identifying cost-effective tools and approaches for the sampling
and analysis of the site.
Support also included participation in project meetings and development of input for sampling
and analysis plans.
Highway 42 Revitalization Area, Louisville, CO
This site received an assessment grant in August 2004.
The Brownfields area for this grant is an industrial area consisting of a self storage
warehouse, an historic gun club and skeet shooting range, a former landscape contractor's
nursery, small manufacturing facilities, an auto body shop, and a concrete batch plant; in
addition, coal mines might underlie the area or parts of it.
Plans for this area include preserving the two existing residential communities adjacent to
the Brownfields area and converting the existing industrial tracts into a transit-oriented
mixed-used development adjacent to the city's historic downtown.
The BTSC provided assistance in development of the Field Sampling Plan by
incorporating use of the Triad approach, review/analysis of the Phase II report, and
participation in project meetings.
