Connecticut DEEP Ecological Risk Assessment

Metal Fabrication Facility; Connecticut


After multiple unsuccessful attempts by previous consultants to satisfy the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environment (DEEP) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) concerns regarding ecological risk, Roux was contracted and developed a highly complex, yet targeted, ecological risk assessment study to evaluate ecological risks associated with a former metals production facility in Fairfield County, CT. Roux reevaluated and revised the ecological conceptual site model based on an in-depth site reconnaissance to focus on emergent and forested wetlands. Bioavailability techniques were integrated into the assessment to streamline the risk analysis for benthic invertebrates and terrestrial wildlife from exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and metals in sediment and wetland soils.
