Selecting an environmental consultant
Site investigations and cleanup procedures can be complex, time-consuming and costly. It is important to select a qualified environmental consultant to perform the tasks required to thoroughly investigate and clean up your contamination.
A competent and experienced consultant can also help you explore redevelopment options for your property, and ensure that you have information about possible financial assistance.
