Waste Management

Environmental Management

Last Updated: August 09, 2018

​We conduct studies of former hazardous waste storage or spill sites to determine whether they have been adequately cleaned to protect the military public health and environment. These include site clearances to evaluate construction or renovation sites to ensure protection of the health of construction workers and future occupants; relative risk site evaluation (RRSE) to evaluate the presence of contaminants, potential for migration, and exposure pathways.
