Old Bethel Native Hospital, Bethel, Alaska

ChemTrack was responsible for the project management of demolition for the former PHS hospital facility in Bethel, Alaska.  This facility consisted of a 100,000 square foot main hospital building, and nineteen (19) out-buildings including lead painted Quonset huts, former living quarters and a wastewater lift station.  Prior to building demolition, all friable asbestos materials were abated, PCB ballasts were removed from all of the structures, and the lead sheeting from x-ray rooms containerized for recycling.

In all, there were 1,200 dump loads of ACM debris that required disposal at an EPA approved landfill.  Miscellaneous hazardous materials including medical waste, waste industrial chemicals, gas cylinders, and batteries were identified at the site.  Where possible, usable materials were recycled.  The project also included mechanical raking of the five–acre complex and conducting a site sampling and project closure verification in accordance with a CIH-designed plan.  ChemTrack landfill activities included obtaining permits from the Air Force and ADEC, site preparation, O&M, landfill closure, as-builts, site restoration and re-vegetation.
