PIONEER CLASSIFICATION SUCCESS at LAKE SUCCESS BUSINESS PARK

ANJV employees helped to develop and define successful classification procedures and methods.  During the development process, we conducted an 88-acre detection survey and cued classification program at a Brownfield site owned by a corporation. 

 

Project Synopsis:

  • Live artillery rounds were discovered in 1999. 

  • Concerns for safety of workers and nearby residential areas dictated remote excavation and blast shield containment for safe removal of possible buried UXO.

  • Prior work: The remote removal process was time consuming and costly – excavation and blast containment cost for 294 contacts on four-acre parcel donated for highway improvements was $274,175

  • Site littered with metal clutter from 100’s of years of use.

  • Our Project: Classified EMI data collected using a fixed-grid template

  • 80% percent of the detected anomalies declared clutter – estimated cost savings > $1.5M.

  • Identified 10 debris fields that required excavation.  138 ordnance items were found and destroyed within the debris fields.
