Site Remediation and Environmental Reclamation
What is site remediation?
Site remediation, or environmental reclamation, is the careful removal of pollutants or other contaminants that are affecting a site’s groundwater, soil, surface water, or sediment. Common environmental pollutants include radiation, waste, gasoline, and chemicals. The process of environmental restoration is especially crucial to protect the health of nearby residents, the surrounding ecosystems, and even existing structures. Environmental remediation seeks to eliminate these pollutants and restore the site to meet current safety and health standards.
Site contaminants are typically found in former industrial and mining areas seeking to transition into a new use or long-term management and must be eliminated prior to doing so. As a result, site remediation is typically mandated by the government or an authority specializing in environmental reclamation.
In most cases, site remediation costs are assessed to the principal responsible parties. For sites that have been abandoned or a principal responsible party is not available, the government has created the Superfund program. This Superfund grants money for environmental engineering and environmental cleanup companies to eliminate pollutants and close these properties.
As an environmental engineering company in Utah, we work with our clients from assessment to site closure to ensure that land is fully reclaimed for future usage or long-term management. Our team will provide multiple options to restore your site and seek to keep you informed throughout the entire process. We understand that environmental reclamation has the potential to be a time-consuming, expensive process. That is why we are proud to offer premier technologies and results-oriented strategies to deliver to you a comprehensive plan of action for your environmental remediation project. These advanced survey and risk assessment tools ensure that your site is being managed to the best of our ability to reduce your associated costs.

Introduction Traffic growth on wireless broadband networks is exploding. Carriers are struggling to keep up with the increased traffic, while creating new plans to attract users to consume more data. To keep up with this demand they are deploying more equipment than ever including fifth-generation (5G) technology to keep up.
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.
