Water Remediation Services
Our water remediation services remove contaminants from groundwater and from bodies and streams of water. Groundwater is the water that is below the surface of the ground, which makes up 95% of the freshwater found in the United States. This means that around 40% of the world’s drinking water comes from groundwater sources such as boreholes and wells. So, if you didn’t think that contaminated water remediation services were important before you started reading, your eyes are now open to the necessity of such services. Besides being a source of drinking water, groundwater provides farmers with water to irrigate crops and for companies to manufacture products. Unfortunately, spills from oil, gas, fertilizer, and pesticides can cause groundwater contamination. That being said, there are various ways to remedy the problem. Groundwater contaminant remediation is the process of treating groundwater by removing the pollutants. There are many different methods of groundwater remediation; contact us to learn more before you need our services.
Emergency Water Remediation
When you have hydrocarbon release on water, be it oil, gas, or any other petroleum-based product, you need to take immediate action to mitigate the spill and remediate the contaminated water. Human exposure to hydrocarbons is most prevalent through skin contact and consumption of contaminated food and water. Crude oil has been proven to cause DNA damage and defects in cardiac function in both humans and animals. There are basically three treatment methods that are used by environmental cleanup specialists to remediate a hydrocarbon release on surface water and groundwater. One method is called pump and treat, where the water is removed from the ground and is treated with biological or chemical agents. The use of organic matter such as plants and microorganisms to clean contaminated water by breaking down certain chemicals is also very effective.
