Concurrent Session 3B – How to Remediate and Redevelop Sites in a Changing Climate

This session will focus on three case studies in New Jersey and show how each project was designed to remediate existing site conditions, while returning each site to productive use. The site case studies will highlight sustainable strategies and how changing climate conditions were accounted for in the design. The sites featured are as follows:

  • North Bergen, NJ – A 7-acre maintenance facility returned to beneficial use through implementing innovative methods of remediation and water management. An injectable PRB vs direct-install PRB, resource recovery of demolition debris, and flood mitigation using a storm water by-pass system.
  • Jersey City, NJ – A 100-acre parcel on the Gold Coast of Hudson County, Jersey City, NJ. The project was designed to promote sustainable living (work where you live, live where you play). Impacted materials were capped and left on-site and built into the plan.
  • Newark, NJ – A 6-acre Stadium Renovation. Remediation and storm water management were the keys to returning a football stadium closed in the 1980’s back to a grateful community.

After presentations, open discussion will be led with representatives from GE and others will discuss how they approach Brownfield’s and how sustainable strategies can be integrated into any plan.
