Environmental awareness has been growing and has picked up momentum in the past decade. Our environment is extremely fragile, making awareness key. In order to make a better, brighter future for all, we need to respect, protect, and preserve the natural world. Environmental cleanup is an important part of protecting our future that is why remediation standards and site assessments are put in place. Environmental remediation, a very necessary component, deals with the removal of pollution or contaminants from environmental media such as soil, groundwater, sediment, or surface water. A majority of the time, the pollutants are left behind by industrial companies that have gone out of business or moved before environmental laws were enacted, and the time has come to redevelop these polluted sites and restore them to their natural states. With environmental awareness on the rise, we are sure to help to protect human health and the environment, now and for years to come.
