Environmental remediation refers to the act of removing contaminants from soil, groundwater, surface water, sediments, and other natural materials. Remediation is necessary if a contaminated area creates a risk of environmental damage, or if there is a possibility of the contaminants impacting the health of individuals.  

The remediation process typically includes a site assessment, which involves assessing the condition of the soil, water, sediments, and other natural materials to determine the extent of contamination. Following the assessment, O’ROURKE’S remediation team will create a plan for environmental cleanup that factors in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards, community regulations, public health, and worker safety.  

Environmental remediation can be a complex and daunting process. Understanding the basics of environmental remediation before starting any cleanup project is essential.
