What is Environmental Remediation?
Remediation is considered a course of action through which all risks start with a comprehensive and reliable assessment. ERMI has the expertise to develop an appropriate Remedial Action Plan (RAP) for contaminated sites. A Remedial Action Plan is beneficial to identify and evaluate areas of concern. ERMI will take into consideration the funding source and budget for the cleanup, cleanup time-frames, and all governing regulations for the cleanup.
ERMI’s professional engineering staff will design a cleanup for each site based on site-specific contamination levels and site conditions in order to cost effectively remedy the problem.
There are several situations where active remediation will be required at a contaminated property. State or Federal regulations may mandate that a property owner take active measures to restore the environmental quality to a site. A property may be associated with a State or Federal funding program, which will not only mandate that the cleanup take place, but will also fund all or a portion of the cleanup costs. In some cases a cleanup may be required as part of a real estate transaction with funds set aside in escrow to facilitate the cleanup.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a site remedial action plan (RAP) should:
- Set remediation goals that ensure the remediated site will be suitable for the proposed use and will pose no unacceptable risk to human health or to the environment
- Document in detail all procedures and plans to be implemented to reduce risks to acceptable levels for the proposed site use
- Establish the environmental safeguards required to complete the remediation in an environmentally acceptable manner
- Identify and include proof of the necessary approvals and licenses required by regulatory authorities.
Once remedial work is complete, a report should be prepared detailing the site work conducted and regulatory decisions made.
