Clients Who Have Remediation Needs
Afraid you may pay
too much to solve your environmental contamination problem?
Afraid you may pay too
much, and your environmental contamination problem is still there?
Afraid you may pay too
much, and then wait years to find out if your environmental
contamination problem is solved -- or maybe still there?
Considering the history of
soil remediation technologies, and associated project cost overruns,
those are very understandable fears. EarthWorks Environmental and our
METS Licensees are
dedicated to taking the worry and uncertainty out of decisions to clean
contaminated soil. If you have a contamination problem, here is what you
1. Find out what other
"solutions" really cost.
Don't be misled by
remediation proposals that tell you only half of the story. Even if the
soil is already excavated, the cost of hauling contaminated soil to a
licensed landfill is very expensive. Check it out for yourself. Do cost estimates include:
- A guaranteed rate for
loading, hauling and dumping contaminated soil at the appropriate
landfill (Class I, II or III)?
- Purchasing and
delivering clean backfill to replace what was hauled away?
- All site
labor, materials and project costs ?
- Project management,
project work plans, and completion reports for government
2. Find out how long it
will take to get the results you want.
unusual to be told that it will take many months -- maybe even several years -- for other
remediation technologies to knock the contamination down to acceptable
levels. Even if the project cost is acceptable (and it probably isn't)
that means your property may be tied up for months or years. One way or
the other, that's costing you money.
Sure, having the
contaminated soil hauled off to a landfill can be done pretty fast --
assuming you can get the permits and approvals you need. But don't
forget: dumping contaminated soil in a landfill
does not relieve you of
long-term responsibility for that soil!
3. Find out what
guarantees you will get.
If you think the cost is
high, and the time is takes to get results is too long, wait until you
ask about guarantees. Most remediation technologies are too unreliable
for guarantees. The most you will get is a commitment for "best
efforts." You may even find that hauling the contaminated soil off
to a landfill does not come with any guarantees -- especially if the
soil contains hazardous materials.
4. Then talk to us. We
already know how to solve your problem.
The METS process and our METS Licensees
can clean your
contaminated property for less than it costs to haul it off and replace
it. Probably much less. Not only that, but we will offer you a fixed
price per cubic yard of soil. The only variable is the actual amount of
soil we process. For that set rate, you get:
- Mobilization and
setup of our remediation equipment at your site.
- All on-site
remediation processing and labor costs.
- All remediation
- Pre- and
post-treatment samples and laboratory testing
- Remediation Work
Plan and Completion Report
- All Remediation
- Guaranteed results
- Peace of mind for
That's it! Project done.
