(1-69 & US 31)
Under Bernardin Locmueller & Associates,
we assisted in research & drafting several NEPA/Category Exclusions baseline studies. Projects included the US31 Plymouth to South Bend Environmental Impact Statement and the I-69 Tier I Final Environmental Impact Study.
Performed lead-based paint Clearances on nine apartment units at Oak Grand Community Apartment Complex on Green River Road in Evansville. Collected dust-wipe samplings and sent these to
laboratory for findings.
Conducted lead-based paint Inspections on residential housing. Collected dust wipes, Niton XRF tests and soil samples on residences. Collected lab results & developed a Risk Assessment report with findings and recommendations for hazard control techniques.
Conducted extensive field research on over 33 proposed highway corridors to identified and documented all man-made/natural environmental considerations. Reviewed
