(Federal, State & Local)
This is a three-year contract procured by Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) for the assumption of the management of comprehensive environmental assessment and remediation activities at the 21st Avenue Fleet Maintenance facility ultimately moving it towards regulatory compliance and closure. PACSCON personnel served as project principal and senior technical advisor on this $1.72 million contract, the largest contract of its kind ever procured by HART. The HART Facility includes approximately 19-acres of land and includes three buildings denoted as the Main Shop, Preventative Maintenance (PM) Building, and the Main Office Building. This facility operates as the primary administrative, maintenance, parking, and fueling facility for the HARTline bus operations. Onsite environmental investigation activities at the facility date back to 1985 through which five (5) areas of environmental concern (AOC) have been identified. The primary constituents of concern (COCs) at the facility are petroleum-related resulting from the fueling area and seven (7) former USTs located west of the Main Shop, as well as the hydraulic lift systems and former steam clean bay.
City of Tampa
The Howard F. Curren Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant (HFCAWTP) was built in 1978, is operated by the City of Tampa, and is the world's largest denitrification filter plant. The plant treats all wastewater discharged to the city system and has a design capacity of 96 million gallons per day, annual average daily flow. Effluent discharge from the plant is continuous and is either discharged to Hillsborough Bay or used as reclaimed water for cooling and irrigation. PACSCON personnel served as project principal in charge of a multidisciplinary team that completed a Comprehensive Facility Audit, Emission Unit Inventory, and Rule Applicability Determination at the plant. As a second phase of work, using the data collected during the initial activities, the project team prepared and negotiated a combined air construction and Title V air renewal permit for the facility. These activities have also been used to guide and inform the capital expenditure allocations under the facility-wide master planning process that is currently being completed for the HFCAWTP by others.
