Riverbank LRA and Weston Solutions, Inc. Secure ESCA Grant from US Army for Privatized Environmental Remediation

WEST CHESTER, Pa., May 6, 2016 – Riverbank Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA) was awarded $39M Environmental Services Cooperative Agreement grant (ESCA) from the US Army to perform the second phase of a multi-phase privatized environmental remediation at the former Riverbank Army Ammunition Plant. The Riverbank LRA, working with Weston Solutions, Inc. (WESTON®) successfully negotiated the cooperative agreement that will enable this former munitions production facility, now the Riverbank Industrial Park, the ability to expand the current lease space.

The work to be performed will include cleaning and remediating interior surfaces, the removal and disposal of Galbestos panels, and surface soil remediation. The Riverbank LRA has worked with Weston for several years; this is the second ESCA that has been negotiated for this former Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) site.
