Site Assessment and Remediation

Ensuring protection of human health, maintaining compliance with regulatory standards, and preparing for reuse or redevelopment projects on property that may contain hazardous waste and/or materials requires a team familiar with hazardous materials regulations. We prepare environmental reports and remediation efforts that cost-effectively meet short-term requirements, while minimizing long-term cost and risk exposure.

Assess, Evaluate, Remediate

Our environmental engineers, hydrogeologists, and scientists conduct assessments on sites ranging from small commercial lots to large oil fields. We work with private and public property owners to identify and manage environmental liabilities, mitigate risks, and best utilize capital expenditures.

We design, implement, and manage sampling and remediation programs, and our experts consider immediate and long-term impacts when determining suitable technologies. Our hands-on approach includes maintaining the treatment technology and continually evaluating its effectiveness.

Our Leaders

Glenna McMahon
Senior Hazardous Waste Project Manager

Hazardous assessment and remediation can seem daunting, but I relish these exciting challenges. I love the process of figuring out what data is needed, obtaining that data, and then fitting all the pieces together.

It can be a long process, with more twists and turns than anticipated, but I have found that the key is keeping an open dialogue about the project objectives and ensure understanding and certainty in our process.
