Environmental remediation is the process of cleaning up environmental areas, usually soil and water, often in an effort to reverse or reduce damage caused by pollution that is detrimental to health. Environmental remediation may be utilized for various types of pollution, including radiation, chemicals, smog, pesticides, toxic waste, oil, or other hazardous pollutants. Whether the site is contaminated because of industrial waste, an accidental chemical spill or other hazardous materials, sewage, or a build up of pollution over time, environmental remediation must follow certain guidelines and standards.
Environmental remediation has a set of codes and compliance. Environmental hazards may result in the contamination of drinking water and other important resources, as groundwater contamination may leak into community water supplies. Environmental remediation expert witnesses may be needed to evaluate a situation in which the process was improperly implemented, leading to chemical exposure, oil spills, PSCBs, heavy metal toxicity, dioxins, gas contamination, pesticides, or other harmful materials.
An environmental remediation expert witness may offer expert opinions after conducting exposure assessments of the area in question. Environmental site inspections are crucial to reaching a successful outcome regarding environmental remediation court cases.
