The project consisted of repairing six levee breaches. Five of the breaches were located along the Spoon River Levee, and the sixth breach was located along an irrigation canal located along the lower levees. USACE Rock Island District presented two scenarios, the first scenario was to work around the clock, and the second scenario was to work twelve hours shifts. After reviewing costs and safety concerns, we all concurred that the project should be performed working ten hours a day six days a week. The daily production rate calculated by USACE was to place 1600 cubic yards of cohesive material on the levee; however, we exceeded that goal almost every day by more than double or triple. Due to inclement weather and the on-going success of the project, quantities were increased and contract quantities amendments were secured. This project was located in a rural area which poses a logistic challenge but did not delay our performance. There were no lost time incidents or recordable events.

Project Name:  Omaha Lead Site 2007, and ARRA Omaha Lead Site 2010
Project Owner: EPA Region 7 (Sub to Coastal Environmental Group)          Dates Held: 2009 – 2012
Project Value:  $20,200,000

The “2007 Omaha Lead Site Project”, and the “2010 ARRA Omaha Lead Site”, Contract Numbers EP-R7-07-05, and EP-R7-07-06 were awarded to Coastal Environmental Group by The United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 7 under a competitive bid procurement. The contract type was “Lump Sum Firm Fixed Price” with Two Option Periods

Enviroworks was a teaming partner and subcontractor for both projects, which consisted of removing lead contaminated soil from a total of 2,200 properties. Due to excellent planning and utilization of local resources, we were able to complete 800 properties within 13 months (this is an amount and rate unmatched in the 10-year history of work on this project by multiple remediation contractors). Through optimum scheduling and logistics support, EW and partners overcame the challenges presented by the size of this project which is the largest and, according to Bob Field, Program Manager at that time from EPA Region 7, the most scrutinized Superfund site in the country. The complex nature of managing site coordination and several field crews, performing the completion of approximately 26 properties per week, was accomplished through frequent and direct communication as well as clear delineation of responsibilities among team members. The excavation and backfill tasks on small, crowded properties in a dense urban environment required small equipment and operating ability to perform within low tolerances. With so many properties, claims after completion were held to a very low level by means of thorough documentation of site conditions (written logs, photos, and video). Continual communication with property owners throughout the site coordination, removal, and restoration process maintained high level of property owner satisfaction. The safety program used over the two contracts provided incentives for exceptionally safe behavior. Random safety audits were performed with rewards for perfect protocol. There were no lost day events for either project with 147,500+ man-hours worked under the 2007 contact and roughly the same hours for the 2009 contract. Although a substantial portion of the assigned properties were provided very late in the construction season, the project completed on time, within budget, and met all contract objectives.

Mr. Mateus project management responsibilities included the overall responsibility for the successful initiation, planning, design, execution, monitoring, controlling, and project closure.
