Kīnā'ole - ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES

 PROJECT Example

CLIENT: USACE Omaha District

Statement of work: Under a Single Award Task Order Contract (SATOC), Kīnā'ole is conducting Property Assessments (PAs) at three Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) properties: Duluth International Airport, Minnesota; Black Hills Ordnance Depot, South Dakota; and Glasgow Air Force Base, Montana. These PAs are being performed following the guidance and methodology of Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) Preliminary Assessments.

However, they are not called Preliminary Assessments due to the fact that each of these properties has progressed into subsequent phases of the “CERCLA process.” These efforts include the following additional tasks 1) property transfer information, 2) identification of Third-Party concerns, and 3) Right of Entry (ROE) access issues. FUDS Inventory Project Reports (INPRs) will be provided for each property for the applicable category, i.e. HTRW, MMRP, CON/HTRW (Containerized Hazardous, Toxic, and/or Radioactive Waste) or BD/DR (Building Demolition and Debris Removal).
