PRAIRIE GATEWAY DEVELOPMENT
Project Name: Prairie Gateway Development, Commerce City, Colorado
Date Project Began: December 2004
Date Project Completed: January 2006
Project Description: Casey Resources, Inc. (CRI) was the Environmental Program Manager for the development of 950 acres of the former Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) property in Commerce City, Colorado. CRI was responsible for implementing a Materials Management Plan (MMP) for the development of the property in accordance with the National Wildlife Refuge Act of 1992, including the construction of a 35,000 seat regional soccer stadium. Prior to the initiation of the development, CRI personnel prepared comprehensive Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) for the property. The Phase I and II ESAs included the review of hundreds of documents pertinent to the property as well as site inspections and soil and groundwater investigations to assess potential impacts associated with the former use of the RMA. The Phase I and II ESA reports were used as the summary due diligence documents to secure construction financing and environmental insurance coverage for the project. The site was remediated as necessary to residential standards for redevelopment.
Type of Contamination: Limited area of Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) impacted soils and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in groundwater.
