Manage remediation in a residential town to clean up elevated copper in soil .

Our Role

Golder managed and conducted oversight of this residential remediation project, including remediation design, environmental sampling and analysis at an on-site laboratory, community relations, and construction quality assurance oversight. We visited residents to discuss access and review of soil samples, individual work plans, restoration material, and most importantly ensuring a satisfied property owner. We used our Sustainability Evalutation Tool (GoldSET) to demonstrate that the remediation incorporated sustainable elements that achieved balanced results for the environment, the local economy and local culture. The project created the opportunity to employ local workers, upgrade landscaping in parks, schools, and residences, and use local resources for landscaping materials. It received a Golder Sustainability Award, an internal award developed to recognize Golder project teams who have embedded sustainability and innovation into their projects.
