Green & Sustainable Remediation

Floyd|Snider incorporates Green and Sustainable Remediation (GSR) in all aspects of our remedial services including investigation, design, construction, operation, and monitoring to minimize the environmental impact and footprint associated with the remedy itself. Our GSR program works to reduce the impact of remedial actions on the environment through strategic remedial investigation, remedy development, and design and implementation for cost effective, long-lasting, and low-impact alternatives that enhance the selected remedial action and future use of the site. The GSR program provides enhanced environmental strategy and remediation services that are mutually beneficial to our clients, the environment, and the community.

Floyd|Snider excels at developing strategic remedial alternatives to optimize cost, effectiveness, and sustainability. Our approach allows for the incorporation of stakeholder and public interests such as future land use and cost efficiency, environmental benefits such as beneficial reuse and native habitat development, and timely completion of remedial actions, while also meeting the cleanup criteria of state and federal regulatory standards. We also incorporate sustainable remediation that is beneficial to our clients by evaluating potential environmental liabilities and risks and by projecting the long-term and lifecycle costs of remedial and redevelopment options.

We are skilled in developing strategic cleanups for clients who have complex, interrelated remediation and redevelopment goals. Because of this, we have had the opportunity to design and implement a number of innovative remedies with tangible benefits to water resources and ecosystems, smart and substantial reuse of materials and reductions in waste, and remediation systems that reduce or recapture energy.

Services provided include the following:

  • Strategic optimization of field investigations
  • Innovative sampling methodologies and program design
  • Incorporation of land and ecosystem services into feasibility studies
  • Evaluation of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Qualitative and quantitative environmental footprint analysis for alternative evaluation
  • Maximization of agency and community understanding of GSR benefits
  • Incorporation of material reuse and waste minimization into remedial design
  • Adaptive management of remedial treatment systems/applications for long-term stewardship
  • Sustainable redevelopment

We strive to support our clients in achieving project goals in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. Download our program overview document to learn more about Floyd|Snider's approach to GSR.
