What we do
Disturbed land rehabilitation
We rehabilitate sites and landscapes that have been used for utility corridors, pipelines, well pads, chemical storage and such. We begin by investigation and developing an understanding of the pre-existing conditions prior to disturbance. Then we inventory the available soil material and devise plans to recreate the best soil profile possible from that material. This often requires addition of soil amendments and blending of the various soil materials on the site.
Dam & pond site reclamation
We reclaim sites previously used for water storage. This presents a unique set of challenges. Besides there being a massive amount of land disturbance on a site where dams or ponds are located there are challenges associated with the wastes or contaminants left behind. We first sample these sites to understand the pre-existing soil and vegetation conditions, earthworks construction patterns, bottom sediments and any hazardous residues. Then we apply our knowledge of earth sciences, water chemistry and relevant regulations to create the most effective plan for our clients prior to execution.
We design, develop and operate irrigation systems for beneficial use of wastewater. The key to our success has been understanding the many aspects required to plan, design, permit, construct and operate wastewater irrigation projects. Our team is well versed in soil science, water chemistry. irrigation technology, hydrogeology and environmental law. But just as importantly we are business managers who take fiscal responsibility for successful project execution.
Industrial and produced wastewater
We deal with some of the most difficult wastewater generated by industry and strive to integrate the right technologies to address the various problems faced by our clients. After careful research, we developed BeneVap™ Systems as a tool to address these difficult wastewaters. This required a combination of R&D and acquisition of submerged combustion technologies. The result is a process that can eliminate wastewater that no other technologies can touch.
