ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES AND ASSESSMENTS

L & R Services Inc. is a provider of site remediation services for a wide variety of soil and groundwater contaminants and has successfully completed hundreds of remediation projects throughout the United States. L & R provides remediation services to railroads, industry and government agencies nationwide. Years of experience has given us the capability to remediate contaminated sites that are often located in remote and inaccessible areas. We have become experts at quickly, safely and cost-effectively mobilizing the personnel, equipment and supplies required for the remediation of large, difficult sites.
We provide “rapid remediation” services that directly follow emergency response actions as well as conventional remediation services for sites impacted by historical discharges of contaminants.

Rapid remediation begins immediately following emergency response actions that are conducted by L & R. Once the incident commander has determined that the threat to human health and safety has been abated, L & R can initiate rapid remediation activities. Rapid remediation techniques can also be used at sites where historical discharges have occurred and the site owner needs the site cleaned up quickly to meet real estate transaction or regulatory deadlines.

Rapid Remediation Techniques Provided By L & R Include:

  • Removal, transport and disposal of contaminated soil

  • Contaminant Flushing
  • Chemical oxidation
  • Bioremediation
  • Removal, transport and disposal of groundwater or surface water
  • Physical stabilization
  • Neutralization
  • Chemical treatment
The goal of rapid remediation is to quickly address the source contaminant thereby minimizing or eliminating further environmental impact to on-site or off-site properties. The obvious advantage to the rapid remediation approach is that a large percentage of a potential future liability can be eliminated in a very short period of time. L & R’s extensive resources of personnel, equipment and sub-contractors allow us to mobilize to a site quickly with the resources required to abate source contaminants in the shortest possible amount of time. L & R has successfully performed numerous rapid response actions at various types of sites and facilities. If requested, L & R can provide the interface with regulatory agencies and other affected parties, or alternately, can work under the technical oversight of the site owner’s environmental consultant.
