FORDS PROJECT

REMEDIATION, RESTORATION & REDEVELOPMENT

Project Description

USA Environment, LP was contracted for this 185-acre Brownfield to Greenfield project on the Raritan River in Woodbridge, NJ. The site’s long industrial manufacturing history presents complex remedial and restoration challenges. The remediation, due its size and complexity, resulted in significant wetland impacts requiring large-scale mitigation. Upon completion of RAO Area 1 with NJDEP, the client was able to market the capped property for redevelopment, adding significant project value.
