PROGRAM

PVE was retained by the purchaser of the former Hudson River Psychiatric Center to apply for acceptance in the NYSDEC Brownfield Cleanup Program and satisfy all program requirements. There are currently 53 structures on the property, all vacant, and one of which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The developer is proposing the redevelopment of the site with construction of a town center style development to include 200 residential units, retail, commercial spaces and walking/biking trails.

PVE negotiated the Work Plan with NYSDEC representatives and ultimately completed three phases of Remedial Investigations including:

  • Excavation of 20 test pits for the purpose of delineating areas of historical fill

  • Drilling of over 75 soil borings

  • Installation and sampling of 15 groundwater monitoring wells

  • A comprehensive vapor intrusion evaluation

  • Interim Remedial Measures

  • Remedial Action Plan

  • On-Going Services
