Assuring human health and the environment are protected, based on anticipated future land and resource uses, drives risk-based environmental cleanup decisions in the 21 century. Long-term stewardship is a priority for industry, government agencies, and the public because many sites are closing with wastes or residual contamination left in place.
EMAGIN assists our clients in selecting, designing, and implementing durable long-term stewardship tools in the form of engineering and institutional controls that eliminate potential exposures to contaminants and protect natural resources. Long-term stewardship experts at EMAGIN are ready to assist with:
Inspections, operation and maintenance of controls;
Life-cycle costing and financial assurance mechanisms;
Information management; and
We meet the challenges associated with establishing an effective long-term stewardship program by employing best management practices, including:
Recognizing the circumstances that trigger the need for institutional or engineering controls;
Matching the reliability and durability of specific controls with the anticipated life cycle of the long-term stewardship obligations; and
Maintaining GIS-based information on the wastes and residual contamination left in place so that the information survives property transfers and land use changes.
Together with our client, EMAGIN minimizes potential exposures and liabilities and thus helps to meet the fundamental goal of protecting human health and the environment.
