Trying to navigate the world of environmental remediation can seem like a confusing and daunting task. In this article, our experts will take an in-depth look into the remediation process, and why it is crucial to have a team of remediation experts you can count on.
What is Remediation?
Remediation refers to the process of reversing or stopping environmental damage. During remediation, polluted or contaminated soil, sediment, surface water, or groundwater is removed to reduce the impact on the environment. Environmental impact regulations are put into place by the state and federal agencies, such as the EPA. Being in environmental compliance is critical as noncompliance can cause health problems, hefty fines, legal problems, or shutdown of production.
How Does the Remediation Process Work?
Seeking experts in the remediation field is your best course of action to ensure environmental compliance. At Handex we will organize and execute a remediation plan by evaluating the site, creating a plan of action, and implementing that plan.
The first step is to take an assessment of the site to identify the severity of contamination. This is achieved by assessing the current site by collecting soil and groundwater samples and reviewing the site's history. By assessing the site, it allows us to develop an innovative, cost-effective plan of action. Every remediation project is unique, so we create a one-of-a-kind plan of action for your project’s needs.
