Investigation and remediation

Storage TankMillions of storage tank systems in the U.S. contain petroleum, agrichemical, or hazardous substances regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). Many of these underground storage tanks (UST's) / aboveground storage tanks (AST's) have leaked in the past or are currently leaking.

Therefore, we maintain a thorough knowledge of current Local, State and Federal clean-up regulations. Including:

  • Brownfields Legislation
  • Tiered Approach to Corrective Action Objectives (TACO) in Illinois.
  • Missouri Risk-Based Corrective Action (MRBCA) Process
  • Technical Standards and Corrective Action Requirements for Iowa.

Utilizing our well-experienced engineers, registered geologists and registered groundwater professionals on staff, our goal is to complete all projects in a cost efficient way for our clients, while meeting all applicable regulatory requirements.
