UMC offers proven experience in engineering and remedial solutions to hazardous and toxic waste issues.
Site-specific work plans can be developed and implemented for a wide range of remediation projects. During the design and implementation phases of work, UMC relies on strong project and contract management skills and a thorough understanding of client’s demands, cost factors and the scope of work to successfully keep jobs on schedule and within budget. Services offered in Engineering and Remediation include:
- Negotiation of Clean-Up Standards;
- Evaluation of technologies, life-cycle costs, and feasibility of remedial alternatives;
- Remedial designs (in-situ and ex-situ alternative solutions);
- Onsite remediation of hazardous and toxic waste contaminated sites including RCRA Corrective Action implementation and CERCLA Remedial Action Services;
- Contaminated Soil and Groundwater remedies;
- Closure plans and cost estimates; and
- Third party executive engineer oversight & construction management/inspection.
Once a specific environmental condition has been identified and delineated, a number of activities must be completed. The need to remediate the site must be evaluated. This task may include the negotiation of clean-up standards on a site specific basis with state or federal regulators. The outcome of these negotiations leads into the evaluation of technologies, life-cycle costs and feasibility of remedial alternatives. The Engineering and Remediation staff carefully evaluates each alternative to assist in selecting the option which is most effective in meeting the established clean-up standard for the least cost and the least liability. UMC does not maintain any corporate interests in remedial technology providers allowing true, independent evaluations of technologies and resulting in selection of the best suited technology for the project considering site specific criteria.
The remedial design can then be developed which meets the established standards using the selected remedial alternative with site specific considerations. UMC staff have successfully completed numerous in situ and ex-situ soil and groundwater remediation programs including soil excavation with offsite disposal, air sparging, soil vapor extraction, groundwater recovery and treatment, and soil bioremediation. These projects have been conducted for clients working under the auspices of the federal Superfund program, various state-Superfund programs, RCRA Corrective Actions, as well as voluntary remediation projects. The Engineering and Remediation staff have also implemented many of the designs that were developed for these projects.
Profiles of a sampling of projects that UMC and/or UMC staff have completed are included in Project Profiles section.
