What is Environmental Risk Management?
Managing environmental risk involves diligent research to identify, maintain and restore property value and provide economic benefits to property owners, small businesses, international corporations and state governments. A talented staff of scientists, geologists and engineers seek to determine what environmental risks exist onsite and then determine how to manage, reduce or eliminate those risks.
With real estate comes real challenges; buildings, condos, homes, and apartment complexes can harbor unsuspected environmental problems. Property owners may feel their property is in pristine condition, but down the road deep beneath the soil, there may be future problems waiting to arise.
Environmental Risk Management specializes in the following:
- Environmental Site Assessment: Involves research into the historical land uses of the subject and neighboring properties, research into local, state, and federal regulatory environmental files and databases for the subject property and a site reconnaissance of the subject and neighboring properties.
- Soil & Groundwater Sampling: A site assessment report is designed to characterize hydrogeologic conditions and to determine the horizontal and vertical extent of contamination.
- Remediation: Remedial action plans are developed for contaminated sites. 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.
- Tank Closure: ERMI provides cost effective Tank Removal, Closure-in-Place solutions, and Tank Closure Assessment Reports.
- Environmental Forensics: A rapidly expanding segment, this field utilizes a wide-ranging armamentarium of tools to identify and characterize complex adverse environmental events.
- SPCC Plans: The Environmental Protection Agency requires commercial facilities that maintain petroleum storage systems to maintain a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan. This plan is designed to protect the public health, public welfare, and the environment from potential harmful effects of oil/petroleum discharges to navigable waters and adjoining shorelines.
- Storm Water Services: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) require certain industrial facilities to obtain National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit coverage for their storm water discharges.
