Remediation Services

The challenge as we see it

Taking a contaminated site and restoring it to a useful condition is a formidable task that must meet the high standards set by federal, state and local regulations.

Our differentiated value 

We have the comprehensive remediation solutions and expertise to properly plan, execute and complete your environmental goals, as well as meet or exceed regulatory requirements.  We have the skills to be able to manage a project from start to completion. In many cases, Veolia can internalize the whole process, but we also offer an integrated turnkey approach using a network of approved contractors to ensure a complete and cost-effective solution.

Our remediation personnel make use of the latest protective and safety equipment, and the most up-to-date communications and site-monitoring devices.

  • Safety requirements

Major Chemical Plant

Veolia provided waste remediation and reduction services to a major chemical plant in Texas.

A major chemical plant in Texas had a large drainage pit that collected wastewater and run-off from the ethylene production process. The pit had plastic liners that had exceeded their useful life and were leaking, failing to separate the waste in the pits from the ground beneath the liners.

See how Veolia successfully remediated the pit, preventing hazardous material from contaminating the environment and minimizing project waste and disposal costs.
