Contaminated Sites

Contaminated Sites

The uses of many properties include activities that may result in the unintentional release or discharge of contaminants to land, water and air. In such circumstances, the immediate priority is to stop the discharge and take steps to prevent reoccurrence. All too often, the residual effects of contaminant releases are not adequately understood or addressed, resulting in increased risk to the users of the property, increased costs to mitigate or remediate, and greater disruption to continued operations.

Terrapex’s multidisciplinary team of professional engineers, geoscientists, environmental scientists, and technicians have the technical expertise needed to tailor a practical approach to assess, mitigate and resolve environmental issues or concerns on contaminated sites. We collaborate to limit disruption to ongoing activities and minimize immediate and long-term costs.

  • In-situ and ex-situ remediation programs to remove, contain, or clean-up contaminated media.
  • Risk Assessments to evaluate and manage the risk in circumstances where conventional remedial approaches are either not practical, cost-effective, or desirable.
