Decommissioning can be hard:
- Cleaning up legacy pollution, including a host of heavy metals, asbestos, PCBs, and other contaminants.
- Recovering useful materials for beneficial reuse or recycling.
- Closing disposal sites and providing for long-term post-closure care.
- Preparing the site to be reused safely for alternative energy, environmental habitat, recreation, or more intense land uses.
- Performing the above under the scrutiny of regulatory agencies and environmental non-profits with different agendas.
We are among the nation’s largest environmental consulting and contracting firms, but our approach is client-centered—our professionals work with your professionals to find the right solution, and then we help implement it.
We understand environmental regulations, but perhaps more important, we understand the purpose of the regulations and the flexibilities and variances available to align environmental compliance and common sense. Our offices are located throughout the United States, and we know and are known by environmental regulatory program staff in almost every state. This knowledge helps utilities and other clients achieve closure, reuse, or certification of voluntary cleanup. See our CCR webpage with articles, regulatory policy, case studies for more information.
The leaders of our utilities practice include:
Mike McLaughlin ([email protected]), an attorney and environmental engineer in our Reston, Virginia office with over 40 years of professional experience at SCS helping utilities and other clients comply with complex regulatory requirements.
Eric Nelson ([email protected]), a geological engineer and geologist in our Madison, Wisconsin and Dubuque, Iowa offices with 20 years of professional experience at the firm, almost all of which has been focused on solving environmental problems for utilities and similar clients.
