Site remediation is the cleaning up and restoration of contaminated sites back to a standard suitable for human habitation and use.
Site contamination is mainly by accidental spills of petroleum products and industrial chemicals; and release of untreated or poorly treated municipal and industrial waste.
Depending on the nature of the released contaminant, the unsaturated zone or both the unsaturated and saturated (ground water) zones become contaminated. The selection of a particular remediation technology for a particular site depends on the soil properties of the site, the rate of migration of the contaminant plume in space and time, the risk posed by exposure to the contaminant and the land use at the site.
PCE undertakes the following remediation techniques:
Remediation to some could sound like an expensive inconvenience because there are usually no obvious profits to be gained from undertaking it.
There are legal implications of owning contaminated land and the earlier your site is cleaned up, the better it will be for you because the longer the contamination stays in the soil, the more expensive it is to detect and treat it and contaminated properties generally result in low market values.
When you have had a spill or accident in the past or you are continually releasing contaminants in the soil, it would be wise to contact PCE for advice about the most suitable course of action and mitigation measures. We will then advise you on what your problems are and what we are going to do, why we are doing it and how we will do it to solve your problems. Then we will showcase PCE’s remediation abilities on your premises. Rest assured that you will be satisfied with our level of service.
