Camp Fire Cleanup

The Camp Fire Cleanup was a nationally recognized project Odin was able to participate in as a subcontractor of Ceres Environmental. Along with other contractors, the entire town of Paradise and neighboring cities such as Concow and Magalia were cleared of debris and contaminants in order for the general public to return. 

Odin’s lots in Concow and Magalia were residential lots. Utilizing 5 crews of 5 people each, with the support of a superintendent and project engineer, Odin was able to clear 86 total lots over 20,000-man hours. The cleanup consisted of one excavator operator and one dozer operator, with the other three crew members handling the smaller debris removal, dust control, and directing haul trucks. Each lot was cleared of metal, followed by general burned debris, and concrete, before the soil was scrapped and removed in order to clear all contaminants from the site. In addition, all vehicles were removed from the lots. The vehicles ranged from cars and pickup trucks, to smaller ATVs and motorcycles, to larger RVs and buses, with the occasional boat and trailer. Due to the extreme heat of the summer months and working 6 days a week for 12 hours a day, some concerns facing Odin was heat stroke and exhaustion for the crews, as well as dust control.
