Remediation

ESE is committed to recycling the land and revitalizing our cities and neighborhoods by making the unusable usable. ESE may conduct site assessments, feasibility assessments, bench tests and pilot tests to determine the most beneficial technology and/or processes available to mitigate site contaminants. These evaluations can identify open exposure pathways which may be mitigated through the use of risk based assessments, institutional and/or engineering controls, eliminating the necessity for costly remediation. ESE is experienced in conducting corrective action projects under the jurisdiction of EPA, TCEQ and the RRC for various programs including Corrective Action Program, Voluntary Cleanup Program and Municipal Setting Designation.

Risk Based Corrective Action

Risk assessments can be utilized to mitigate property contamination in lieu of physical remediation. Risk based corrective action involves thoroughly evaluating property and contaminant characteristics and the respective pathways through which potential receptors may be exposed to contaminants.

Physical Remediation

Remediation generally involves contaminant removal or the reduction in contaminant concentrations from environmental media at a site. ESE may conduct feasibility assessments, bench tests, and pilot tests to determine the most beneficial technology and/or processes available to remediate site contaminants. Some remedial methods include excavation, land farming, in-situ chemical oxidation, bioremediation, and in-situ immobilization.

Making Brownfields Green

Reclaim

ESE will assist with the acquisition of environmentally distressed infill sites. We will provide negotiating leverage for the buyer by identifying and quantifying environmental liabilities that can be used to discount the property.

Restore

ESE will use engineering expertise to remediate your site through risk-based approaches, striving to reduce cost while achieving project goals. Every dollar saved through innovation is equity built by our client.

Renew

ESE will deliver dirt ready sites for redevelopment. The results of our efforts include increased wealth for our client and an improved quality of life for the community. Making the unusable usable, making brownfields green.
