The Waste Cleanup Section is basically a "Mini-CERCLA" or Superfund Section. We work on cleaning up sites with contaminated groundwater, soil, and/or surface water. Most of our sites were contaminated prior to the enactment of environmental regulations or the source of contamination is unknown. We deal with a wide variety of contaminants, but the predominant contaminants are solvent from drycleaners, paint manufacturers and industrial degreasing operations, pesticides from old manufacturing facilities, pesticide mixing areas and golf courses, fertilizer from manufacturing facilities or accidental spills, coal tar from old manufactures gas plants, metals from plating industries, and an assortment of contaminants including methane from old landfills. We also deal with junk yards, auto shredding operations, old lead battery waste, buried drums, etc.
