  • Review available site investigation data.
  • Discuss the client’s long-term goals regarding the property and its usage.
  • Discuss risk factors.
  • Identify the advantages and risks of applicable remediation options.
  • Provide remediation cost estimates.
  • Collect additional information to address data gaps.
  • Prepare appropriate risk assessments, investigations, and reports necessary to develop methods to prevent exposure to constituents of concern.
  • Coordinate with regulatory agency personnel to obtain approval to implement a risk-based cleanup.
