Environmental remediation is perfect for ensuring that any pollutants and contamination within a site’s soil don’t adversely affect human health. Here’s a rundown on what environmental remediation services offer and when they may be warranted.
Let’s dig in!
What Is Environmental Remediation?
Environmental remediation is a process where contaminants and pollution are taken out of a site’s surface water, sediment, groundwater, or soil.
This helps to ensure that pollution doesn’t harm the environment or human health. It also helps to prevent contaminants from reducing the soil’s fertility.
When the soil is cleaned up correctly, we all benefit. After all, diseases related to contamination can be prevented. In addition, the soil can confidently be used for the cultivation of crops.
To ensure that the remediation process is performed properly, you must hire experts who will comply with all related regulatory requirements.
What Pollution Must Be Removed?
Hydrocarbons are among the most common types of contaminants in the soil. Other common contaminants include the following:
Hydrocarbons also include heavy metals, such as cadmium, arsenic, mercury, and lead. Among all of the metals, lead is most dangerous to humans.
What Does Environmental Remediation Involve?
Environmental remediation involves several steps.
First, remediation professionals must investigate your property and assess its state. Then, they will create a report on their findings and submit this report to state environmental protection officials.
If the professionals determine that too many hazardous materials are in the water or soil on your site, based on state requirements, you must clean up this site. This will allow the site to comply with the relevant environmental standard.
Next, the professionals will use a variety of cleanup techniques based on whether contamination has been found in the soil, groundwater.
Finally, the experts will work to prevent future contamination through isolation possible pollution sources from groundwater and surface water.
