Below, we've outlined details on a couple of our services.
Lead management includes the inspection, management in place and proper procedures using lead safe work practices when lead containing materials will be disturbed during renovation, repairs, painting, construction or lead abatement work activities. Lead is predominantly found in buildings built prior to 1978. The EPA has reported from residential housing studies, the percentage of housing likely to contain lead paint based on the age of the building is: 24% from 1960 - 1978; 69% from 1940 - 1960; and 87% before 1940. Lead has been found to be especially dangerous to children less than six years of age, reducing IQ and leading to behavior problems. Lead is also harmful to adults leading to high blood pressure and hypertension among other problems and even pregnant women can transfer lead to their fetus.
Our lead management services are designed to minimize human exposure to lead.
Underground Storage Tank Management
We provide underground storage tank (UST) services for the convenience of our clients. Our underground storage tank management services make it simple to comply with current regulations. We provide inspections and sampling to determine the location, size and content of each UST. Based on this information we can provide the costs associated with the different options for management in place, decommishing, soil and groundwater remediation, monitoring and proper disposal.
