24 hr Spill ResponseThe most traditional method for soil remediation consists primarily of soil excavation and disposal to a landfill or a “dig and haul” scenario. Evergreen AES maintains an inventory of heavy equipment to better serve clients in the completion of soil remediation projects.
Evergreen AES has established relationships with landfills in all of our service areas to enable processing of impacted materials in a timely manner. Even in the event of an emergency, we are often able to expedite the disposable process to give our clients piece of mind in knowing we are working in their interest.
In-situ technologies are also a viable option for soil remediation and include bioremediation, the treatment of environmental problems through biological means. In bioremediation, either naturally occurring or specially bred bacteria are used to consume contaminants from soil or extracted groundwater. Bioremediation is sometimes used in conjunction with a pump and treat system.
Evergreen AES has successfully used bioremediation as a method of soil remediation in the treatment of elevator shafts and hydraulic lift stations contaminated by leaking hydraulic fluid and areas impacted by leaking underground storage tanks.
