This is an excellent example of a boot wash station that we used on a Superfund site seven years ago. We entered from the top right, cleaned the loose mud off of our boots. Next, we stepped into the center bin and cleaned everything off of the boots. Lastly, we stepped into the closest bin and rinsed off.

Temporary Boot Wash

We were excavating a riverbank next to a former Superfund cleanup site and we hit a layer of black soil. I stopped the work and called out an Environmental Agent (EA). The EA took samples of the soil and sent them to a lab for analysis. I had the contractor rope off the area and build a temporary boot wash at the site entrance. It turned out the soil was clean.
