Bardstown, Kentucky

After years of operation serving the auto parts industry, a zinc and chrome plating plant in Bardstown, Kentucky shut down operations. Extensive contamination, particularly chrome and acid residue, was present in the plant. In some places, sludge on the floor was several inches thick.

A major challenge was obtaining approval for our cleanup plan from regulatory authorities. Faced with complex and unusual circumstances, regulators were reluctant to give the green light. After lengthy and sometimes intense negotiations, Cedar Creek won approval to proceed with essentially no change to our original plan.

Start to finish, the job took about three months. Today, the owner enjoys a new space and peace of mind knowing the site is free from contamination.
