  These traditions continue today with our staff of over 200
professional scientists and engineers of all disciplines. MM&As
diverse technical staff have the qualifications and direct experience
necessary to handle any environmental or civil design-related project.



             30 Years and Counting
  Founded over 30 years ago in the Appalachian Mountain town
of Bluefield, Virginia, MM&A has grown into a dynamic and
diverse consulting and engineering firm. Today, the employee-
owned company operates from eleven offices in eight states and
has over 200 employees. Our technical staff includes: civil and
environmental engineers; geologists and hydrogeologists; chemists;
biologists; risk assessors; GIS specialists; wetlands specialists; and
construction managers.
   Our growth strategy is simple; we grow one satisfied client at

SITE INVESTIGATIONS AND REMEDIATION

  MM&A remains at the forefront of the environmental
science and remediation fields. Our team of professional
scientists and engineers has the experience to steer sites into
the appropriate regulatory program and fully characterize
the sites in accordance with the applicable state guidance
documents. Specific site investigation services include:

• regulatory program Selection and Negotiations
• preparation of remedial Investigation (rI), Site assessment
  Work plans, and Sampling and analysis plans (Sap)
• preparation of Site Specific Health & Safety plans (HaSp)
• multi-media Site Investigations
• Contaminant Fate and Transport modeling

   For more than a decade, regulatory programs have
slowly gravitated to risk-based closures versus stringent
published remedial goals. MM&As scientists (including
toxicologists) have extensive experience in preparing
site-specific risk assessments and developing site-specific
remedial goals that match the intended property use and
future exposure scenarios.
  Because site closure is not always achievable through
human and ecological risk analysis, MM&A has a staff of
engineers to design the appropriate, cost effective remedy to
address any contaminant in any media. Our experience in
remediation design includes the following technologies:

•   lNapl/DNapl recovery*+

Description of Work:
  As engineer and Remedial Contractor, MM&A prepared
the remedial design and implemented the ROD-Specified
remedial action at the North Carolina State University
(NCSU) lot 86 National Priorities List Site. The NCSU Lot
86 Site served as a burial site for hazardous chemical and
low-level radioactive waste generated in the Universitys
educational and research laboratories from 1969 until its
closure in November 1980.
   NCSU estimated it disposed approximately 300,000 cubic
feet of chemical waste at the Site, including: solvents (1,1,1-
trichloroethane, chloroform, bromoform and methylene
chloride), organics, alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, inorganics,
acids, bases, oxidants, amines, pesticides, herbicides,
fungicides, phenols, halogenated hydrocarbons, and PAHs.
Some of the chemicals disposed were air reactive, water
reactive, and shock sensitive. The site was rated and placed
on the NPL List in October 1984.
  The ROD specified remedy was shallow soil mixing and
stabilization using a crane mounted auger unit connected
to a borehole shroud and air treatment train. Soils and
buried waste were stabilized using a 15% mixture of
Portland cement.

       Waste Water Treatment System Design

Client: Industrial Client
project location: ludlow, Kentucky
Description of work:
  MM&A designed a replacement waste water treatment
system for the Ludlow engine Terminal owned and operated
by a Class I Railroad. According to the client, water
collecting in the storm drainage network beneath the facility
was conveyed through pipes to a basin that once served as the
roundhouse turntable. The turntable mechanisms were long
ago removed, and the drain in the bottom of the turntable
became plugged, allowing the turntable to act as a large
holding tank for storm water flowing from the facility. The
network serviced an approximately 2-acre drainage area,
which included ready tracks, fueling area, yard drains, and
parking areas.

Key Work assignments:
• Surveyed and mapped the existing system and evaluated
  its effectiveness
• jet cleaned and vacuumed the drain lines and disposed
  recovered grit off-site
• Determined the design flows associated with the drainage
  network and evaluated the current system attenuation
  and treatment of flows
• Evaluated potential alternatives for treating the storm
  water discharge
• prepared a summary of findings in an Evaluation report
  suggesting recommendations for optimum implementation
• provided 50% design and upon approval, a 90% design for
  the treatment system
• Following client approval of the 90% design, mm&a
  proceeded with the final construction drawings for the
  wastewater treatment plant
                                                                5

        Storm Water management Design

Client: Industrial Client
project location: Elkhart, Indiana
Description of work:
  MM&A designed enhancements to the storm water
treatment system at a large Indiana industrial facility.Storm
water draining from the 159-acre facility flowed into a
retention quality pond prior to discharging off site via a
NPDeS permit. The pond had a surface area of 0.15 acres,
with the outflow being controlled by a v-notch weir, yielding
a maximum holding volume of 370,000 gallons. Given
the large drainage area supported by the pond, the ponds
retention time was shorter than optimal, limiting its potential
effectiveness for improving water quality. In addition, pond
outflow control was limited and the two pipes conveying
the pond outflow were restricted to a 5-year storm event
capacity. To address these issues, the pond was reconfigured
into a constructed wetland to polish effluent with a 1.65
million gallon storage capacity. Outflow from the constructed
wetland was controlled by (2) riser barrel structures, which
expands the basins storage capacity to control a 50-year storm
event and attenuate the peak flow. Another modification was
the installation of submerged, individual valved-pipes to
convey flow from the forebay to the rest of the structure. This
created desired catastrophic event controls and increased the
retention time while filtering the storm flows through 5,700
added riparian plants.

Key Work assignments:
• Surveyed and mapped existing storm drain system and
  evaluated existing system’s effectiveness
• jet cleaned and vacuumed storm drains near the fueling
  racks, 3.5 million gallon aST system, and other petroleum
  handling facilities at yard
• Determined design flows associated with drainage area
  encompassed by network and evaluated how current
  system attenuated and treated flows
• Evaluated potential alternatives for treating storm water
  discharge from facility
• provided 50% design and upon approval, a 90% design for
  treatment system
• provided final construction drawings for storm water
  treatment system

         VOluNTARy REMEDIATION
       bROwNfIElD REDEVElOpMENT

  Over the last decade and a half, various states have
recognized their inability, due to limited resources, to
oversee and enforce investigation and remediation at
impacted industrial facilities. As a result, most states have
created Voluntary Remediation Programs (VRP) of various
dimensions, designed to direct industry toward site closure
with minimal involvement with the regulatory agency.
MM&A has hands-on experience in navigating sites through
VRP programs and acquiring certificates of completion.
More importantly, our staff understands which programs are
not flexible and may create additional liability. Our staff
maintains the necessary licenses and credentials to perform
work under the various state programs. VRP services
routinely offered include:

• Negotiation of Consent agreements
• Selection or Creation of remediation Goals Based on
  Intended property Use
• preparation of program Specific plans and Documents
• preparing public Notices and Conducting public meetings
• obtaining Covenants or Certificates of Completion


  In addition to VRP programs, MM&A has experience in
various state Brownfield programs designed to provide for
the redevelopment of abandoned or inactive sites.

After unsuccessful attempts of implementation of a
remedial work plan, the Site was entered into the State
Voluntary Remediation Program. Under the VRP an initial
investigation identified an extensive list of contaminants
of concern (COC) including the dioxin 2,3,7,8-TCDD,
metals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-volatile
compounds (including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons),
total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH), pesticides, and
polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Due to the extensive list
of COCs, the Sites proximity to the Kanawha River, and
numerous other potential receptors, the State contracted
MM&A to serve as the technical reviewer for each phase
of site work. For the first phase, MM&A worked closely
with the responsible party (RP) and the regulatory agency
to implement a thorough sampling protocol to adequately
delineate the Site and to collect sufficient data for a complete
risk assessment. MM&A served as the lead technical
reviewer for risk assessment.

Key Work assignments:
• assist rp with developing a comprehensive sampling plan
  to characterize site

Description of work:
  MM&A was tasked with performing a Phase I
environmental Site Assessment (eSA) in accordance with
the ASTM protocol on approximately 500,000 acres located
in a three-state area. The property was previously used for
coal mining and possibly timbering. Due to the large size
of the property, MM&A obtained and performed a thorough
record search and reviewed aerial photographs to identify
potential areas of environmental concern prior to any site
reconnaissance. The overall property was surveyed via
helicopter to confirm and map the areas of concern and to
identify any additional areas. each potential area of concern
was visited, inspected and mapped in a GIS database.

Client: Class I railroad
project location: Savannah, Georgia
Description of work:
  Senior MM&A personnel provided trial support to a
plaintiff pursuing settlement of a pollution liability claim
against Lloyds of London Insurance. The insurance claim
involved expenses associated with the assessment and
remediation of soil, ground water, and surface water
impacted by the release of a large volume (approximately
80,000 gallons) of creosote from an above ground storage
tank (AST) and appurtenances. Lloyds of London denied
coverage, claiming that the release occurred after the policy
expired and that the release was not a catastrophic one from
the AST, but rather multiple releases over time from the
facility. In addition, the defendant claimed the expenses
associated with the remediation were excessive.
  MM&A provided expert witness testimony revealing that
the release was in fact, associated with the AST and was
catastrophic in nature. In addition, MM&A was in agreement
with the expenses associated with the proposed remedial
technology for soils and ground water.

    Co-Environmental Emergency response

Client: Class I railroad
project location: Tri-Cities, Tennessee
Description of work:
  MM&A was called for a release from a tanker car carrying
bis (2-ethyhexyl) phthalate. Approximately 17,000 gallons
of liquid were spilled from the leaking tanker car onto a
third party property. A portion of the released material
immediately entered the storm water drainage system while
the remainder was absorbed into the soil. MM&A was
responsible for rapidly assessing the extent of the impact
to soil using a direct push system while eR actions were
ongoing. In addition, MM&A monitored streams during a
24-hour storm event to assess the potential impact to

      Environmental/Indoor air Quality (IaQ)

Client: regional property management Company
project location: raleigh, North Carolina
Description of Work:
  MM&A was retained to determine the origin and cause of
a mold condition on the interior perimeter walls of a large
three-story commercial building. Moisture mapping and
IAQ sampling verified the existence of moisture intrusion
and mold condition(s) within the building. A detailed and
systematic investigation of the overall building system
eliminated common water intrusion causal conditions.
Further mechanical investigation of the building’s
multiple HVAC systems, coupled with pressure testing
and environmental evaluation of the building revealed that
moisture was being drawn into the structure, due to an
abnormal negative pressure condition within the building.
High humidity air was being drawn into the perimeter wall
cavities and was being trapped by vinyl wallpaper in the
interior walls, resulting in moisture concentration and the
development of mold growth. Construction deficiencies and
the design/modifications of the HVAC system were cited as
casual factors to the client.

Key Work assignments:
• Verification/identification of moisture/mold conditions
• Determine o&C of condition
• Determine opportunities for subrogation.
• remediation recommendations
