Kimmins Environmental Service Corp. said Tuesday that one of its subsidiaries has received an $18 million contract to clean up a Superfund site in Illinois.
Kimmins Thermal Corp. received the contract for a cleanup at the LaSalle Electric Utilities Superfund site in LaSalle County, Illinois. Kimmins succeeds a Westinghouse subsidiary on the project.
The project involves the excavation of contaminated soil, on-site incineration and asbestos abatement work, as well as building demolition and decontamination work. The contract also calls for the collection and treatment of ground water and other restoration work.
Kimmins, which has a regional office in Niagara Falls, said work on the project will begin immediately and is expected to be finished during the fall of 1992.
In addition, Kimmins recently has received contracts for several projects worth more than $25.5 million from Bethlehem Steel Corp., the O'Hare Airport Authority in Illinois, Sterling Organics, Occidental Petroleum Corp., Niagara Mohawk Power Corp., the City of Tampa, Fla., and the Town of Amherst.
