Plabell Rubber Company Property Cleanup

Toledo, OH

Hull is working with the City of Toledo and St. Clair Redevelopment, LCC to implement a CORF (Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund) grant to complete environmental remediation and demolition activities at the former Plabell Rubber Company property and the nearby vacant Armstrong property.

Hull completed Phase I and II assessments funded through a U.S. EPA brownfield assessment grant and managed match-dedicated cleanup and demolition activities provided by repaid funds originally awarded to the City as part of its U.S. EPA Brownfield Cleanup Revolving Loan Fund grant.

Hull prepared specifications and oversight activities for asbestos abatement and demolition activities.  We prepared plans and implemented remedies to address soil contamination at the property.  Soil excavations removed surface and subsurface soil above VAP (Voluntary Action Program) generic direct contact standards and leach-based soil values for off-site disposal.  The excavations were then filled with clean backfill.

This project will result in significant environmental improvements as well as the expansion of the adjacent business, Rivereast Custom Cabinets, Inc., planned residential areas, and green space adjacent to Swan Creek.   This property is across Swan Creek from Hull’s office on Erie Street.  It is part of an overall effort to revitalize this portion of Toledo’s Warehouse District.
