  1. Have geocells been used as a stabilization method on other waste sites in the country? (5-18-2009)

    Geocells have been successfully implemented on the former Ambler Asbestos Superfund Site. The geocells at the former Superfund site were filled with concrete. At the BoRit Superfund Site, the geocells are being filled with soil and stone. There are sections of the geocells structure at the former Superfund site that are scheduled for maintenance this Fall, but the maintenance is for repairing erosion of the stream bank around it. The geocells structure has remained intact and functional since it was installed in 1992.

    It is important to note that EPA has been working closely with the United States Army Corps of Engineers on the design of the stream bank stabilization. They have supported the designs for the BoRit Superfund Site.

    Any questions regarding the former Ambler Asbestos Superfund Site should be directed to the Remedial Project Manager, Jim Feeney, at (215) 814-3190.
