Supporting Renewable Resources
For more than 35 years, our environmental professionals have served clients involved with former and active facilities which treat wood or manufacture wood preservation chemicals by providing risk assessments, remediation planning and remediation project management services.
Since the Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA) and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA – aka Superfund) became laws, we have been helping clients in the wood preservation sector meet groundwater monitoring requirements and take corrective actions. We also assist clients with meeting the letter and spirit of state laws, regulations and voluntary programs.
Our breadth and depth of experience performing large multi-media environmental site characterizations has given us an exceptional ability to understand the migration potential of wood preservatives into soil and groundwater at wood preserving and wood preservative manufacturing sites.
Based on site conditions, we perform risk-based evaluations using standard and innovative investigation techniques. If we determine that remediation is the most prudent course of action, we develop strategies to address any risks posed by the site, and tailor those solutions to your particular circumstances by prioritizing the use of natural attenuation, containment and in-situ techniques.
Having performed work at more than 100 wood preserving facilities, our team is familiar with every conceivable challenge, and how to best comply with applicable laws and regulations.
Whether a wood preservation facility is being remediated for ongoing operation, or is being prepared for brownfield redevelopment, KU Resources has expertise that can add value to your business.
