Eveready Battery Company
The 14-acre Eveready Battery Edgewater Facility in Cleveland, Ohio operated as an industrial parcel starting in the 1890s, manufacturing steel, batteries and varnish. No longer in use, Eveready voluntarily sought to assess the environmental impacts and remediate the site in order to sell it for future development. Burgess & Niple (B&N) worked with Eveready and the developer to assess, remediate and clear the site.
B&N performed Phase I and 2 Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) and risk assessments under the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Voluntary Action Program (VAP) protocol. Remedial alternatives, including bioremediation and risk-based corrective actions, were developed. This resulted in an Operations Maintenance Agreement, which was also implemented by B&N.
Through close coordination with the Ohio EPA and USEPA Region V Brownfield Program, a Covenant Not to Sue was issued for the property. Today, the site is being developed into a $100 million residential/mixed-use development called Battery Park.
