Brownfields Redevelopment

Brownfields Redevelopment & Remediation – Jackson Pit Site

The Jackson Pit site, was a designated Brownfield behind the Lewes Home Depot and neighboring Eagle Point subdivision in Lewes, DE. The site contained decades’ worth of illegal dumping materials and debris including: house wastes and lumber. This caused major environmental concern due to the release of methane from the decomposing wood debris.  The site was selected for redeveloped, making way for an apartment complex that has been in the works since 2008. Sussex County planners and council members approved the development of a 168 unit apartment complex.  The proposed complex – the Arbors of Cottagedale Apartment – approval and construction were contingent upon clean up of the Jackson Pit site. Batta was responsible for the design and monitoring of on-site excavation. Batta performed segregation and disposal of soil (surface and subsurface) and buried organic debris and biodegradable waste.
