Project Summary

A 17.5 acre Brownfield site in Detroit, which once housed multiple factories, fuel storage operations, a rail yard, paint shops and commercial structures has recently been developed into a medical distribution center for a major medical supply company. Subsurface investigations within the area identified that the historical operations released volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including chlorinated solvents, which posed a potential risk to the indoor air quality of the proposed medical supply warehouse facility. The environmental consultant (AKT Peerless) was able to secure Brownfield funding through the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and prepared and submitted a Vapor Mitigation System Work Plan to the MDEQ which detailed the installation of the system design for the proposed new building.
