This first big wave of PFAS treatment system construction work came from the water purveyors responsible for providing safe drinking water to residents and businesses. We are proud to be provide our expertise and turnkey construction services and partner with these purveyors to address this problem in our own backyard!!

Pictured above is our progress on the most recent PFAS water treatment plant improvement project. This project is being built for the Irvine Ranch Water District and will serve the City of Orange community with roughly 3 million gallons of clean drinking water per day. It’s tough to predict where the next big wave of PFAS treatment system construction work will come from, but yesterday’s USEPA proposed National Primary Drinking Water Regulations for PFOA, PFOS, and four additional PFAS compounds will surely spring its origin!

At ICS Our Secret Weapon is Our People – in fact, it’s one of our core values! Last week we received the following touching email (summarized) from a citizen within our community that reaffirmed that and is worth sharing with you: 
Two weeks ago, on a Tuesday around 5 o’clock in the evening, disabled, quadriplegic Marine Corps veteran (in a 350 lb. wheelchair) Mr. Windisch, his wife and his service dog found themselves at the bottom of a trail within in the Paramount Ranch State Park in Agoura Hills, CA. Unable to make their way back up the steep, washed-out trail due to muddy terrain from recent storms, they attempted to locate a park ranger for assistance but could not find one.
Luckily, they were able to track down three ICS team members who were finishing up at a project site within the park and were more than happy to help. Mr. Windisch described Javier, Demondre and Orlando as “friendly [and] highly motivated” in “their dirty clothes and muddy boots [that] testified to a long and hard day of work.” In order to get Mr. Windisch and his wheelchair safely up the muddy slope, Javier, Demondre and Orlando physically pushed and guided Mr. Windisch in his wheelchair up the muddy terrain. Mr. Windisch admitted that “without the help of Demondre, Orlando, and Javier there is no doubt that for my wife, my dog, and me, it would have been a long, cold, and very dark evening.”
Mr. Windisch concluded his email by saying “I have had the privilege of leading many of the finest young men and women our great nation has to offer. I know the value good people bring to an organization. As such, I feel that it should be known that in the course of rendering assistance to me, a wheelchair-bound veteran, my spouse, and my service dog, Javier, Demondre, and Orlando brought great credit upon themselves and Innovative Construction Solutions. They upheld the highest standards of good citizenship while representing your corporation.”
We could not agree more with the sentiments that Mr. Windisch expressed about these three men and are extremely proud to have them as part of our ICS family!

As the year winds down, we’d like to send a heartfelt thank you to those who have placed their trust in our team and helped make our success possible!

From our ICS family to yours, we wish you a safe holiday season and a successful New Year! 🎄❄️🎁🔔

Identifying sites suited for industrial redevelopment in California is becoming more and more challenging with most sites containing existing structures and environmental challenges. We take pride in our ability to serve our clients as a one-stop shop to tackle both and in turn add value!

Our team is currently working on the abatement and demolition of this 285,400 square-foot former warehouse in Vernon, CA. We are “cleaning and clearing” the site for redevelopment, which will consist of a 165,000 square-foot new warehouse building, a water storage tank, and a water quality basin. Great job team!
