Environmental Remediation After A Spill
When your site has a hazardous material release that results in contamination of surface water, groundwater, soil, or the pavement, you need remediation services to ensure that your site comes into full compliance with all local and federal regulations. That is where we come in. We are fully HAZWOPER certified to provide the spill remediation services you need. But, before we get into the types of services we provide regarding hazardous wastes, we wanted to discuss what exactly environmental remediation is. Remediation defined is as the act of remedying something, basically reversing or stopping whatever environmental damage has occurred. Therefore, environmental remediation is when a professional remediation contractor is engaged in the removal of pollution or contaminants from groundwater, surface water, and any soil that might be negatively impacted. Remediation is the removal of waste products for the express purpose of protecting human health, as well as the environment.
Emergency Response Environmental Remediation
At North Texas Spill Response, we have extensive experience working with law enforcement and other first responders in responding to public health emergencies. This experience coupled with our extensive training in hazardous material cleanup has allowed us to grow in ways we never thought possible. We pride ourselves on our fast oil spill response and gas spill response times. When we arrive at the site of a spill, we quickly assess the situation and determine the best course of action to stop the spill from continuing. Once the flow of hazardous materials has been abated, we then begin the remediation portion of our response. We are highly aware that environmental remediation is very regulated and subject to a wide array of legal requirements. Of course, we adhere to them because these regulations are put in place based on assessments of human health and environmental risks. Contact us for all your spill remediation projects, or if you would like a free on-site consultation fill out one of the forms on this page.
Before we begin providing environmental remediation, we first conduct a site assessment to determine what types of contaminants are involved. This determination allows us to create a plan to quickly remediate the gas spill. Once we have determined the scale and scope of the cleanup necessary, we quickly get to work to fully clean your site of all contaminants.
What Is The Environmental Remediation Process?
The Basics of Hazardous Material Remediation
In case you are unaware, the law requires that any individual, company, or organization that experiences a hazardous material spill must rectify the issue as soon as possible. And, while there are penalties for not complying with the law, the benefits of quickly stopping the spill and removing the contaminants in a timely manner far outweigh putting off the cleanup procedures. However, the problem lies in the fact that most individuals, companies, or organizations don’t possess the qualifications necessary to take on massive cleanup efforts without help from a seasoned professional. Site cleanup can consist of large-scale efforts when you experience a toxic chemical spill. And, whether these contaminants are released into the soil, air, or water these hazardous materials must be removed and the site must be cleaned quickly so as to mitigate and minimize the damage that is done. Remediation services start with assessment, but as you can see below they don’t end there.
Once we have arrived at the spill site to provide remediation services, the first step in the process is the site assessment. In this step, our HAZWOPER trained specialists will examine your site to determine what type of contaminants are present. Then we will map the area and sample surface and groundwater, as well as any affected soil.
With the site assessment completed, our HAZWOPER trained professionals are now able to determine the best course of action with regards to the method of remediating the contaminated areas. The appropriate spill cleanup methods may include hydrocarbon oxidation, excavation, soil vapor extraction, pump and treat, and more.
In order to protect our own cleanup specialists, as well as those close to the spill and the community at large, we will next need to assess what safety measures need to be implemented during and after the cleanup is completed. In so doing, we will communicate clearly with public officials and all stakeholders prior to beginning the cleanup.
