BART-MacArthur Transit Village
RPS developed and implemented a Remedial Action Plan to clean up the site of the future MacArthur Transit Village, a planned mixed-use development featuring approximately 600 units of housing, community, and retail spaces adjacent to the MacArthur BART station in Oakland, California.
Site soil and groundwater were contaminated by historical fuel releases from off-site properties. Under RWQCB oversight, RPS designed a remedial program that was fully integrated with development constraints and opportunities. The final remediation of local contaminated soils included significant soil excavation, groundwater extraction, and application of oxygen releasing compound (ORC) to facilitate natural bio-attenuation. RPS completed its environmental work so that construction could progress as planned. Development is currently in the advanced stages of completion.
