City of NY: Law Department, New York, NY

Stored in the basement of a government building a couple of blocks away from the World Trade Center, were hundreds of boxed legal documents that got wet from underground water intrusion that seeped into the basement as a result of the recovery efforts from the 9/11 attacks.  Unnoticed for a few months as the fires burned and the NYFD hoses pumped water 24/7 to put out the fires from the collapsed buildings, these documents were not only wet, but covered with mold growth.  The SOW consisted of re-boxing onsite prior to removing the documents and shipping them to be freeze-dried, eradicated via gamma radiation, and hand cleaned to remove all residue.
