Environmental consultants investigate sites and the environmental problems associated with current or past activities. Based on the results of the assessment and corrective action plan developed by the engineer and/or geologist, an environmental contractor will implement site remedies. The remedies can be as simple as removing debris from drainage ways and impacted soil to more complex remedies such as metals stabilization and chemical injection, with many options in between. One of many tasks a young professional may be required to do, is work with an environmental contractor to develop a ROM (reasonable order of magnitude) for cost. We will present a basic understanding of why assessment results are needed and various remediation options. We will discuss how to provide the solutions based on available investigation data for site remediation.
