Waste remediation services factor in the sites that have been directly and indirectly contaminated; both the initial point of contamination and the places where contaminants have spread must be treated. When working with water, for example, contamination could be widespread and difficult to trace.
What is hazardous waste remediation?
In the waste management industry, remediation refers to the reversal of environmental damage. Removing and cleaning up contamination is an extensive process that involves the elimination of hazardous materials from four kinds of contaminated sites: groundwater, surface water, soil, and sediment.
What causes contamination?
Contamination of these four sites could be caused by large-scale environmental events, like industrial oil spills or hazardous waste emergencies. It could also be the product of the long-term, accumulating environmental health decline caused by pollution, sewage, treatment plants, or by-products of industrial activity.
Clean Management’s remediation services include:
As part of our groundwater remediation services, we treat contaminated water beneath the earth’s surface.
Contaminated groundwater could be a result of industrial spills, runoff, and landfill seepage.
Groundwater remediation efforts could include physically removing the water from the ground for treatment, injecting chemical counterparts, or utilizing biological defenses.
Surface Water Remediation
Surface water remediation efforts remove pollution from contaminated bodies of water that are above the ground. Remediation methods for these situations are similar to those for groundwater.
Our soil remediation services treat contamination that’s built up in the soil. This contamination can affect agricultural and environmental health when left untreated.
Sediment remediation treats pollution in the sediments that accumulate at the bottom of bodies of water.
The goal of remediation is to remove and clean up contaminated sites to protect humans and the environment. To accomplish this, a regulation-compliant team must fully execute an extensive, carefully planned remediation effort complete with continued monitoring after the remediation.
Clean Management’s hazardous waste remediation services include any solution your company may need to correct environmental damage from spills, seepage, or other forms of contamination. Contact a Clean Management representative in your area for information on available remediation services.
