Soil management screening of all soil to be re used or disposed of

Soil Management

  • Screening of all soil to be re-used or disposed of

  • Re-use or disposal of excess soil

Re-use of Excess Soil

  • Excess soil estimate = 195,000 tons

  • Current cost to re-use = $0

  • Current cost to dispose offsite = $100 per ton

  • Cost avoidance potential = $19.5 million

    Additional Benefits of Re-use

  • Re-use of landfill materials at the source

  • Site elevation increases to address storm surge concerns

  • Avoidance of 6,800 truck trips needed to dispose 195,000 tons of excess soil will reduce vehicle emissions and on-campus traffic related to "to and from" truck trips

On-Campus Options for Re-use of Excess Soil

  • Parking Lots

    • North Parking Lot

    • Lot D

    • South Parking Lot

  • Roadway Areas

    • Bianculli Boulevard adjacent to Boston College High School

  • Landscaped Areas/Landforms

    • Commencement Lawn

    • Soccer Field and Track

    • Behind Calf Pasture Pumping Station

    • Between Calf Pasture Pumping Station and Lot A (Quonset Huts)

      Site elevations to be determined by:

  • Adjacent existing or proposed (e.g. Campus Quadrangle) elevations

  • Storm surge concerns

  • Views

Screening

  • Visual screening to identify type of soil based on composition so that it can be temporarily stored and managed appropriately

  • Physical screening of soil that is filled with debris – glass, brick, metal, boulders – these materials represent risks of future settlement

    On-Campus Location Options for Physical Screening and/or Temporary Storage

  • South Lot

  • Lot A

  • Lot B

  • Lot C

  • Lot D
