Veolia Energy’s new 7000 foot steam line will connect existing excess steam production from Cambridge to meet Boston’s steam demand, while eliminating the need for discharge into the Charles River, improving environmental conditions. Construction started in the late fall of 2012. The new steam line spans two cities as it crosses the Charles River and is operating under multiple environmental permits, including USEPA NPDES RGP, USEPA NPDES CGP, MADEP/MCP URAM, BWSC permit, Boston and Cambridge Conservation Commission Orders of Conditions. The construction work is broken into distinct Segments, and construction phasing includes day and night work. SAK Environmental is Veolia’s on-site Environmental Engineer providing environmental management and permit compliance support for all segments of the project. SAK Environmental provides oversight of the excavation and management of contaminated soils, the dewatering and treatment of contaminated groundwater, field sampling and analytical testing, and regulatory reporting throughout the project. SAK Environmental Licensed Site Professionals (LSP), engineers, scientists and field techs are involved in the monitoring and inspections – working closely with Veolia Energy’s Construction and Environmental Health & Safety Managers to complete an environmentally responsible project.
