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.

In the early 1990’s, the Copperton Tailings Impoundment, which collected water from the Bingham Canyon Mills, became part of the South OU of the Bingham Canyon South Zone NPL site. Anderson was retained by the Principle Responsible Party to provide project management and construction oversight for the remedial action at
Site History The F-33 Mine is an underground uranium mine that operated from 1954 to 1959. The mine is in the Grants Uranium District in Cibola County, New Mexico. The primary commodity extracted was uranium with vanadium, fluorine, and barium as secondary products. The mine is located on private land
First Title II Uranium Facility Accepted by US DOE for Long-term Operation and Maintenance. The Bluewater Uranium Mill was the second-largest Title II uranium processing facility in the Western Hemisphere and the first post-closure site to be accepted by the US Department of Energy for long term operation and maintenance.
Working under the Voluntary Cleanup Program Amoco operated refineries in North Salt Lake for many years and has previously completed remedial work in areas impacted by their operations. In 2012, the Anderson team was retained to complete characterization sampling and prepare the Conceptual Site Model for the former repository area.
Since 1986, Anderson Engineering and other key team members have performed important remediation work in Rico, Colorado. Our knowledge of the site history is unsurpassed, as it our understanding of the residents, agency staff, and stakeholders. The Rico Mining district in Southwest Colorado contains several former mines and mill sites
After the EPA declared the Tintic Mining District to be on the NPL list, Atlantic Richfield retained Anderson Engineering. Our Senior Construction Team prepared surveys of existing conditions, provided remedial designs for impacted areas, and offered technical support during construction. Designs included groundwater pumping systems, hydraulic structures, roads, covers, and
Engineering is more than technical expertise. It’s a collaborative effort that incorporates technical skill with innovative consulting, management, and workforce.
