Site Remediation

A hallmark of our practice is how we roll up our sleeves and work with our clients and their consultants to develop cost-effective investigation and remediation strategies for contaminated sites.

  • Superfund-CERCLA
  • RCRA corrective actions and closures
  • Brownfields
  • Oil Pollution Act
  • State programs
