Mahaffey Fabric Structures was recently in the news for a new structure erected in Belleville, IL. Ameren, a corporate energy company, is using the structure to cover the area while contaminated soil is removed from the ground.
According to Tim Vizer of the Belleville News-Democrat, "Ameren is spending $35 million to clean up the site where the old Belleville Gas Light and Coke Company had once stood. That company had polluted the soil with tar and ash in the late 1800s as it created gas from coal to light city street lamps. The plant was closed in 1917, but all the toxic byproducts remained in the ground."

Temporary structures are often used for a variety of projects, one being enviornmental remediation, as noted above. Mahaffey Fabric Structures has provided temporary enclosures for numerous applications, including soil remediation and odor and emission control. These structures can be used as volatile containment, decon tents, negative pressure and detoxification facilities, and for site security.
