Site Remediation & Contaminated Soil Removal

One of the most important factors of construction and land development is respecting the environment and following strict environmental protection laws put in place by the government. When a site is determined to be contaminated, environmental site remediation must take place.

Environmental remediation is the removal of pollution or contaminants from environmental components such as soil, groundwater, sediment, or surface water. Remedial action is generally subject to an array of regulatory requirements put in place by the government and involves a number of stakeholders including landowners, developers, provincial law makers, ministry staff, approved professionals, environmental consultants, lawyers, local governments and scientific experts.

A site that is experience any form of environmental pollution is a complex problem. Contaminated sites are a concern because they can pose a threat to human health, the environment and safety. The effects of contaminants on humans can range from minor physical symptoms to life-threatening diseases. Environmental hazards can occur on land and in the water and have the potential to harm not just the land or water it is taking place in, but the wildlife in that area as well.
