We provide environmental engineering services for mining, energy, and infrastructure development. Our services include CERCLA (superfund) radiological waste site, active/dormant mining, and oil/gas decommissioning.
Our reclamation engineering and design teams are adept at reading current site conditions and providing concise plans for restoration and providing a safe and useful final land surface. We manage hydraulic design, water treatment, soil remediation and vegetation design, and provide construction drawings and specifications to document every step.
Decommissioning and Closure Engineering
When a facility has fulfilled its purpose, we mitigate the hazards, anticipated end-use, long-term sustainability requirements, impact of cultural and biological resources, constructability, and finally – work aggressively to minimize long-term cost associated with the site.
With dozens of conservation acts in nearly every state, a thorough understanding of these laws is essential. Anderson Engineering has worked for 30+ years, and can address them in multiple jurisdictions. We also have prepared Site-wide Waste Management Plans to manage hazardous waste, Special waste, and non-regulated (non-hazardous) wastes, and RCRA Bevill Exempted Materials. Our team provides environmental regulatory compliance and consulting expertise to some of the largest mining companies in the world, and is intimately familiar with all CERCLA processes.

There is also ample opportunity within Salt Lake City to recycle some of the waste that is typically found in landfills. Some recyclable waste types include envelopes, aluminum cans, newspapers, certain plastic containers, and cardboard. Recycling allows quality materials to be reused for new products, reducing the amount of commercial waste.
As a resident of Salt Lake City, it is natural that you want to be informed about upcoming real estate development projects in your area. Maybe your region contains several brownfield sites, which could affect the health and safety of your neighborhood. What is a Brownfield Site? Brownfields are areas
Relief Well Design and Construction In 2015 a debris plug, consisting of collapsed soil and mine timbers ar the entrance to the Gold King Mine in southwestern Colorado broke free, releasing three million gallons of contaminated water into the Animas River. The water, containing high levels of arsenic, lead, and
Soil Characterization, Remediation, and Reporting Anderson provides field environmental services on behalf of Rio Tinto Kennecott. One of the largest mining and processing operations in the world. Today, the second-largest copper producer in the US, Kennecott Utah Copper provides about 18-25% of US copper needs. Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon Mine is
Operated from 1953 to 1982 The Jackpile-Paguate Uranium Mine site is located at the Laguna Pueblo, about 40 miles west of Albuquerque in Paguate, Cibola County, New Mexico. The site consists of three former tribal leases within the Laguna Pueblo. The former leaseholder, Anaconda Minerals Company, a division of Atlantic
Impacted Residual Water Anaconda-operated mills in Bingham Canyon deposited impacted residual water into Bingham Creek for many years. Bingham Creek water was then used by local farmers for irrigation in the Salt Lake Valley. The EPA placed the residential neighborhoods that were developed on the former flood plain on the

Conventional technologies are those that have a successful track record in mine site cleanup and site remediation. At Anderson, we have implemented many of these technologies and methods on over 100 different remediation projects across the Western United States. In performing environmental reclamation and site remediation projects, there are three
The Salt Lake Tribune has quoted Atwood’s statement, “Yet Asian economies remain hungry for coal, especially coal from Utah, which packs high amounts of energy, but produces less ash and contains smaller amounts of pollution-forming sulfur than most of the world’s coal.” https://www.sltrib.com/news/environment/2019/09/24/closed-eastern-utah-coal/ (Paywall) From this statement, I wanted to
The Environmental Protection Agency, other federal government agencies, States, and Tribes have been managing investigations and cleanup activities at mining and mineral processing sites for over twenty years. A large number of cleanup technological innovations have been successfully utilized in the removal and handling of mining waste . There are
Environmental remediation in Utah occurs on a daily basis at active, closed, and abandoned mine sites.To understand the importance of environmental reclamation, it is also important to understand mining in Utah. This article provides a brief overview of the main types of mining in Utah, other types of mines, and
Before we go any further, let’s talk about what an inversion is. An inversion is when the hot or cold air is essentially “trapped” in an area. The air above creates a type of “seal” that keeps the air, and pollution from rising.
What is project cost control? Project cost control involves estimating your projected budget, monitoring any of your projects’ expenses, and planning for unforeseen costs that may arise from risks in engineering and construction. As a result, cost control is also one of the most critical performance indicators for your projects.
