In this Region (OH, IN, IL, MI, WI, MN), EQM continues to respond to emergency, time-critical and non-time-critical task orders. We provide management, field personnel, and equipment resources to execute decontamination and demolition, containment measures, asbestos removal, drum and underground storage tank removal and excavation, water/waste treatment, site restoration, and waste treatment and disposal. This ongoing contract has involved over 500 task orders totaling more than $300M.
We have successfully performed over 100 projects for Region 6 (TX, LA, NM, OK, AR) that cover a broad range of sites, wastes/contaminants, impacted media, and remedial technologies. These projects include emergency responses, and immediate and planned remedial actions in all media (air, water, soil) for removal of oil and petroleum products, toxic and hazardous chemicals, asbestos-containing materials, and low-level radioactive wastes. Sites have included refineries, abandoned manufacturing facilities, residential yard removals, plating facilities, landfills, wood treating facilities, and illegal drug laboratories.
In Region 9 (CA, NV, AZ), EQM manages the delivery of emergency, removal, and remedial ERRS services. This work includes cleanup, containment, countermeasures, and treatment and disposal (T&D) of oil, petroleum, and hazardous chemicals including fuels, waste oils, PCBs, cyanide, lead, mercury, heavy metals, solvents, acids/bases, radionuclides, paints, solvents, pesticides, explosives, and terrorist agents (chemical, nuclear, and biological).
This work has been accomplished at mine sites, landfills, abandoned manufacturing sites, refineries, waste oil recyclers, wood treaters, waterway/roadway spills, drum sites, and illegal explosives storage or manufacturing sites. We provide containment, countermeasures, decontamination, and demolition services to mitigate hazardous waste/site conditions; we also provide planning and resources for responding to man-made and natural disasters, terrorist incidents, and incidents involving weapons of mass destruction.
