REMEDIATION & RESTORATION

Sustainable Environmental Remediation, or Green Remediation, reduces the demand placed on the environment during cleanup actions, otherwise known as the “footprint” of remediation, and avoids the potential for collateral environmental damage. The potential footprint encompasses impacts long known to affect environmental media:

 

  • Air pollution caused by toxic or priority pollutants such as particulate matter and lead,

  • Water cycle imbalance within local and regional hydrologic regimes, 

  • Soil erosion and nutrient depletion as well as subsurface geochemical changes,

  • Ecological diversity and population reductions, and

  • Emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), and other greenhouse gases contributing to climate change. 

GOING GREEN: 

Renewable energy: The use of renewable energy systems to power remediation equipment can significantly reduce the environmental footprint, particularly for remedies that require moderate to long-term equipment operation. Meadows utilizes photovoltaics (PV) at sites where access may be limited or power supply would prove costly. Many of these systems have been recycled through completed projects, thus offsetting the sometimes high capital cost of a renewable energy system. 

 

Resource conservation through recovery, recycle, and reuse: Meadows recycles construction and demolition debris, re-injects treated water, and reuses treated soil on site to the greatest extent possible. Such practices reduce the consumption of landfill space and reduce various other impacts associated with the transportation of waste off site and new materials on site.
