64-Acres Covered by 30 years of Vegetative Growth

Location: Humble, Texas
Project Value: $160,000


LWR was chosen to provide soil remediation services at a 64- acre parcel of land in Humble, Texas. The property was cov- ered by 30 years of vegetative growth following the end of its useful period as a producing oilfield.



  • Excavation, transportation, and disposal of approximately 4,000 tons of non-hazardous soil impacted by petroleum and metals
  • Extensive land clearing and construction of temporary ac- cess road for hauling was required due to the excavation areas being scattered throughout the property
  • Approximately 2,500 cubic yards of brine impacted soil was transferred to a 5-acre cleared area where it was blended with existing surface soil to reach chloride levels low enough to support vegetative growth
  • Three additional drilling mud pits were discovered during excavation that were remediated in real-time though a change order
  • Project was completed on schedule in August 2019 with zero safety incidents
