Landmark has provided environmental services to the University of Minnesota since 2009. The Twin Cities Campus is located in one of the oldest areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and former industrial uses such as railroad yards, chemical plants, oil recycling businesses, bulk petroleum storage, manufactured gas plants and grain elevators have resulted in a large assortment of environmental issues. Our work has ranged from Phase I ESAs, Phase II Investigations, and cleanup and construction oversight during redevelopment to pre-demolition asbestos surveys and environmental compliance for existing facilities. Our compliance work has included a comprehensive regulatory compliance assessment, preparation of MPCA and Metropolitan Council Environmental Services discharge monitoring reports, preparation of Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans, and Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Plans.
Multiple UMN departments, Landmark and Carl Bolander and Sons teamed together for the Como Student Housing cleanup project, which won a Minnesota Brownfield ReScape Award for environmental impact. Working closely with the project team for this multi-family residential property, Landmark prepared design documents, cost estimates, and conducted construction oversight and reporting for the remediation of a 5.3-acre residential Property funded by multiple Hennepin County Environmental Response Fund grants. Cleanup consisted of excavation of approximately 16,400 tons of lead, arsenic, copper and PAH contaminated soil. See link: https://mnbrownfields.org/case-studies/como-student-housing-soil-remediation/
