San Antonio International Airport (SAT) was built in 1941 as a military base and converted to a commercial airport in 1953. With two terminals situated on over 2,600 acres and more than 12 domestic and international airlines, SAT provides non-stop service to more than 30 domestic and international destinations.
Freese and Nichols was selected in January 2013 by the City of San Antonio for an IDIQ contract for On-Call Environmental Services. The contract is for a period of five years with a scope of services that includes:
Environmental Monitoring (air, storm water, surface water, soil, and groundwater)
Title V Air Permitting
Environmental Site Assessments, Hazardous Material Surveys (asbestos, lead paint, etc.) and Contaminated Material Management
Environmental Compliance Audits
Preparation of Pollution Prevention Plans, including Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans, and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans

A portion of this airport was constructed over a pre-Subtitle D era landfill. Freese and Nichols worked with airport staff to develop work plans for delineation of these fill areas using a combination of an electromagnetic terrain conductivity survey and installation of soil borings. Delineation of these areas is necessary to allow for airport expansion into previously undeveloped areas owned by the City.
