Nichols Environmental staff are on call to respond to environmental incidents. Through an effective emergency response program, we have been able to reduce potential environmental liabilities that face our clients as a result of an inadvertent release or incident.
Working cooperatively with the initial response workers, we have found that releases can be managed both cost effectively and in a responsible manner, thus reducing our client’s contingent liability. Our response programs have included installation and operation of dual-phase vacuum extraction (DPVE) equipment, air stripping towers, spill booms, and cut-off dams to control contaminant migration. Through our network of contractor affiliations, we are able to provide timely and cost-effect spill response management.
An important factor in any release is the regulatory process and closure reporting. Nichols Environmental has a strong working relationship with the regulatory authorities and can assist our clients in managing their releases with the regulators.
