Restoring the Ecosystem

Leveraging Innovative Design for Sediment Remediation and Landfill Closure

As remediation specialists clean up industrial manufacturing properties, the legacy contamination that makes its way into adjacent rivers and wetlands represents a significant liability and challenge. The science of sediment cleanup is difficult due to a long history of industrial discharges, the complex chemistry of comingled contaminants, and the impacts on ecosystems. Additionally, the scale of the problem, located beneath the water’s surface and spread by the tides and currents, often results in expensive remediation due to the volumes of sediment requiring potential removal and disposal. Responsible parties are challenged with efficiently navigating the complex sediment investigation and risk assessment process, including the ability to work with agencies to successfully identify satisfactory cleanup levels and select a protective remedial approach.

TECH FOCUS: Considerations and Solutions for AFFF Transition Projects

As the conversation surrounding PFAS continues to grow, so does the focus on a widely used firefighting product known as AFFF, or Aqueous Film Forming Foam. These foams are used to suppress fires at facilities that contain petroleum products or other flammable chemicals, as well as municipal fire departments and airports. Yet, because of the environmental and health risks posed by AFFF, many users are exploring the complex and costly task of replacing their AFFF systems.
