FPM Volunteers at MacDill AFB for CORE Program
March, 2018 - Ethan Blatt and Brett Evans of FPM Remediations, volunteered at the oyster dome installation event at MacDill Air Force Base. The event was held by Tampa Bay Watch, a nonprofit organization that performs a variety of habitat restoration and protection activities throughout the year, utilizing thousands of volunteers to help the bay recover from its environmental problems. Volunteers helped transport and deploy over 200 oyster domes along the shoreline as part of Tampa Bay Watch’s Community Oyster Reef Enhancement (CORE) program. In total, over 9,000 oyster domes have been deployed along the shoreline at MacDill AFB over the past 2 years. The goal of Tampa Bay Watch’s CORE program is to increase the oyster population in Tampa Bay and at the same time, provide habitats for small organisms, prevent erosion, improve water quality and promote fish and wildlife habitats.

FPM will analyze alternatives to address free product and the approximately half-acre area where residual fuels are present in the vadose zone and capillary fringe at Landfill Site LF030/31. The goal of the FS is to identify technologies and recommend a remedial approach that will reduce and eventually eliminate the hydrocarbon plume that is currently being addressed using a pump and treatment system. Upon completion of the FS, FPM will prepare an Explanation of Significant Differences (ESD) documenting the new treatment technology and identifying cap drainage improvements to facilitate capturing runoff on the upgradient side of the cap.
FPM was awarded a contract to perform annual Land Use Control (LUC) inspections and reporting at seven sites, cover maintenance at seven former disposal sites, and maintenance and repair of 20 groundwater monitoring wells at Little Rock Air Force Base, AR.

FPM Volunteers December 2018
December, 2018 - Ethan Blatt and Brett Evans of FPM Remediations, volunteered at Tampa Bay Watch’s oyster shell bar construction event at MacDill Air Force Base. As part of Tampa Bay Watch’s Community Oyster Reef Enhancement (CORE) program, the Oyster Shell Bar program creates oyster reefs similar to natural oyster communities found along shoreline areas throughout Tampa Bay. First, volunteers helped shovel 10 tons of fossilized shell into marine-friendly mesh bags. From there, volunteers then constructed an oyster shell bar by deploying the bags of shells along the shoreline in permitted design. The goal of the oyster shell bar program is to provide and enhance marine habitat while providing environmental education and stewardship within the Tampa Bay community through hands-on community restoration.
Through the creation and enhancement of new oyster habitat in Tampa Bay, many new ecological benefits will occur, including:
