Environmental Services

EBS environmental team has vast experience in almost all areas of environmental services consulting. Over the 25 years, our environmental services have expanded to include such specialized fields as asbestos consulting, lead-based paint testing, mold assessment, indoor/outdoor air quality and noise studies. We have continued to conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments in accordance with American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards and also in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). We have also performed compliance auditing, permitting, design of remedial actions including removal of underground storage tanks (USTs), assessment of contaminated sites, etc. We have the experience, technical resources and state-of-the-art tools to manage the most complex of projects from the initial site investigation to successful implementation of approved solutions by the authorized governmental agency.
