LGS conducted Phase II environmental site investigations on a number of commercial parcels in downtown Reno, Nevada, adjacent to the UPRR right-of-way as part of the City of Reno’s ReTRAC project, which relocated a several miles long section of the at grade tracks into a trench to reduce traffic congestion in the city. A metal fabrication plant with a 40 year history of operation was located on one such parcel to be acquired by the city. A historical investigation of the use of this parcel was conducted along with a site visit and interviews with current plant personnel. The results of a Phase I assessment led to a Phase II investigation of the soil and groundwater at the site. The object of these investigations was to ensure that the city did not acquire potentially contaminated properties.
