Groundwater remediation expertise and empathy help client fulfill promise to Native American community


  • Our industrial manufacturing client made a commitment to investigate and remediate trichloroethylene (TCE) contamination on a Native American community’s property, likely related to previous industrial activity nearby.
  • To meet the expectations of the community and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we worked closely with the community and our client to research and implement an in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) groundwater remediation solution.
  • Our remediation strategy has proven effective, and we ensured the Native American community was fully informed and comfortable with every step, by striving throughout the project to follow the community’s customs and respectfully and productively communicate with its members.
