TYPES OF ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION

 

Environmental remediation in Toronto, provided by Terra Firma Environment Services Ltd, encompasses various types of remediation processes to address contamination in the soil and groundwater. Groundwater and surface water remediation are also important, as improper industrial discharge can contaminate water. Experts assess and evaluate the sources of contamination to restore water quality. Sediment remediation is another focus area, where technologies are used to reduce or convert contaminants in sediments into less harmful forms. These comprehensive remediation services aim to improve environmental conditions in the Toronto area.

UST & AST Removal

Old fuel oil storage tanks and associated piping left in the ground pose a significant environmental risk to properties in Toronto. Terra Firma Environmental Services Ltd recognizes the importance of addressing these risks and offers comprehensive environmental remediation services. Old underground storage tanks (USTs) that store various fuels are prone to rusting and leakage, leading to soil and groundwater contamination. Terra Firma Environmental Services Ltd’s experienced staff, including geologists and environmental technicians, can assist clients in tank removal, site remediation, and filing post-closure reports to achieve a No Further Action (NFA) status. The company conducts storage tank assessments, including soil sampling, groundwater monitoring, and contaminant plume monitoring.
