August Mack Environmental has been selected by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to provide environmental consulting at the Kirby Tire Recycling Facility in Dublin, Ohio. The contract, worth $837,000, begins on July 1, 2003 and ends June 30, 2005. Four years ago, arsonists set fire to the facility, creating an eighteen-acre fire that burned over seven million tires. As the tires burned, they generated millions of gallons of oils. In order to extinguish the blaze, soil was dumped on the site, which stopped the fire, but buried the tires. As a result, August Mack will aid in groundwater treatment and soil remediation after oil trapped inside the buried tires contaminated surrounding groundwater and soil.
