Depending upon where the gas spill occurs, the cleanup process may be more or less intensive. For example, if the spill occurs on the roadways, it can be cleaned up and remediated with minimal effort if the proper spill response occurs in a timely manner. All efforts must be made to ensure that not only the hazardous substance release is removed from the roadway, but swift attention to avoidance of spilling into the waterways is also required.
However, if a spill occurs on porous ground, spill remediation will be more intensive. The soil will need to be treated and in some cases, removal of the soil will be required. When soil removal is necessary, the environmental services company will need to follow all of the regulated waste disposal guidelines to ensure the spill area is clean and contaminate free.
When a fuel spill is on the ground, North Texas Spill Response removes the hazardous substance in the soil by placing it in contaminated soil plots. We then treat the contaminated soil with ELMN8 solution. ELMN8 is a patent-pending non-hazardous and non-toxic solution that, when applied treats any hydrocarbon contamination through a chemical oxidation process. Once the contaminated soil has been treated, the byproducts of weather and carbon dioxide are all that remain.
When a hazardous substance release occurs, response time is the most critical element. When you contract with North Texas Spill Response for your environmental services spill response company, we will ensure a speedy response, as well as ensure that you have all of the reporting paperwork in place before a spill occurs.
