Environmental Services Spill Cleanup
Our HAZWOPER certified technicians take environmental protection very seriously during any type of oil spill cleaning situation. With a wide range of environmental spill remediation options available, determine the best approach to meet your needs can be difficult. North Texas Spill Response can help you set out a plan of action before a spill occurs. So, whether your spill turns out to be in the form of groundwater contamination, soil contamination, or simply a surface spill, we will work closely with you to determine the most cost-effective solution to any spill at your facility.
Hazardous materials are harmful to your health as well as the environment, and attempting to clean up a spill yourself usually results in either doing so incorrectly and in many cases illegally. When you experience a hazardous spill, don’t take a chance, call North Texas Spill Response for assistance.
Petroleum Contamination Mitigation
Here at North Texas Spill Response, our team has spent years studying the many different ways to approach petroleum remediation, from both groundwater contamination and soil contamination points of view. When a petroleum spill occurs, it can find its way into water sources through many means. Either through condensation from underground or aboveground storage tanks, tractor-trailer tanker spills, drawdown water, or through tanker ship water bottoms, if there’s a chink in the armor, petroleum will find a way. When an oil spill occurs on soil, we begin the site remediation process by carefully, but quickly assessing the contamination area. Once we find the origin of the spill, we initiate a plan to reconcile the contamination. Once the oil spill has been remediated from the spill site, through the use of regulatory compliant hazardous waste management procedures, we transport the waste material, including the contaminated soil, in a safe and legal manner. When an oil spill occurs in water, we conduct a similar assessment of the spill site and quickly set up industrial spill containment berms to ensure that contaminated water does not travel downstream and outside the spill containment area. And, in many cases, we can solve an oil spill on water through the use of ELMN8 to remediate the hazardous hydrocarbon threat that exists. In the case of a tractor-trailer tanker rollover, this aids in instantly opening closed roadways so that traffic can pass freely.
North Texas Spill Response provides a multitude of hazardous material remediation services for oil spills, gas spills, and emergency diesel spill cleanup situations. These site remediation services include long-term, preplanned remediation activities that ensure your ground is as clean as before the spill occurred. We will clean up any contaminated spill site.
Hydro Excavation is the process of using water under pressure in conjunction with an industrial-strength vacuum to excavate and evacuate contaminated soil. Hydro Excavation, also referred to “hydrovac excavation” is used where conventional excavation is prohibitive due to tight spaces or other underground obstructions.
Onsite Soil Testing
North Texas Spill Response provides onsite soil testing after a spill as well as after site remediation to ensure that the hazmat services provided were effective in removing harmful materials from the environment. When you contact us for spill response clean up, we will prepare a detailed report based on our findings to ensure your site is clean.
In Situ Treatment
What is In Situ Treatment
In situ treatment, or in situ soil remediation, involves applying biological material, chemicals, or other physical processes to the subsurface of contaminated soil in order to degrade, immobilize, or completely remove the contaminants on site. In situ simply means in place. And, one reason why in situ treatment is desirable is that it removes the contaminants from the soil without the removal of the majority of the soil around the contamination. This leads to a solution that is more environmentally friendly, as soil erosion is avoided. Another reason in situ treatment is beneficial is that it can reduce the overall cost of site remediation. Below are a few of the methods of in situ soil remediation.
- Chemical oxidation in situ treatment
- The process of chemical oxidation entails combining chemical oxidants with the contaminated soil. When the chemical oxidants react with the contaminants in the soil, the result is that they become less harmful. Hydrogen peroxide is effective at breaking down petroleum contaminants in soil.
- When hydrocarbons, which are the contamination produced by an oil or gas spill, are allowed to remain deep in the soil they do not dissipate on their own. But, when you turn up the contaminated soil and allow the hydrocarbon contaminated soil to interact with oxygen it speeds up the biodegradation of the contaminants in the soil.
- Soil blending
- Soil blending consists of adding uncontaminated soil to contaminated soil so as to dilute the soil contamination to acceptable levels. Of course, ongoing soil testing must be kept in place to ensure that the contamination of the soil remains at or below regulatory levels.
