Remediation and Engineering Design
Cardinal Resources has provided remediation services in active and inactive industrial, mining, and waste disposal sites throughout the US and around the world. We strive for remediation methods that incorporate natural processes and minimize long-term operation and maintenance. Our design engineers develop remediation systems using creative and open-ended thinking, taking into account economic, safety, and environmental factors and codes of practice.
Cardinal Resources undertakes a full range of environmental investigations, from Phase I Environmental Site Assessments through complex Superfund-level remedial investigations. Our key to cost-effective environmental investigations is to establish in advance how the findings will be applied, and what the cleanup goals and strategies will be if contamination is found.
Regulatory Consulting and Litigation Support
Cardinal Resources is experienced in many different regulatory programs and can support clients in determining what regulatory reporting, monitoring, or remedial actions need to be taken. We have experienced and credible personnel who have provided in-depth expert research and testimony during the resolution of regulatory or environmental liability disputes.
Wastewater and Storm Water Management
Cardinal Resources considers both conventional approaches and innovative strategies focusing on sustainable, low-energy, low-chemical approaches for:
- Rain water/storm water management
- Industrial and sanitary wastewater treatment
- Protection of surface water and groundwater throughout the water treatment and management
Where feasible, we incorporate green infrastructure techniques that use natural systems or engineered systems to mimic natural landscapes to capture, clean, and reduce storm water runoff.
Cardinal Resources can assess the chemical and biological quality and quantity of surface water or groundwater supply sources, and advise on appropriate treatment or improvement of existing treatment approaches.
