TRC Recognized for Removing Lead Contamination from Mill River

TRC Companies Inc. has been awarded a pair of awards from the Environmental Business Journal – one for business achievement and the other for an innovative remediation project to remove lead sediment from the Mill River in Fairfield, Conn.

Our mandate at TRC is to make the earth a better place to live, and we’re thrilled to be recognized by EBJ for doing just that,” said John Cowdery, president of TRC’s Environmental Sector.

The uniquely structured Mill River project involved dredging contaminated sediment along 2.5 miles of the river, performing passive dewatering of more than 30,000 tons of sediment and treating of more than 100 million gallons of wastewater within an aggressive two-year timetable.

The Mill River meanders 16.3 miles through Fairfield before emptying into Long Island Sound.

TRC shared the award for the Mill River cleanup with Shipman & Goodman, LLP, a Hartford law firm involved in the project.
