Even the smallest oil spills can have disastrous effects

Clean water is vital to our health and our communities. We need clean water upstream to have healthy communities downstream. Even the smallest oil spills can have disastrous effects if proper remediation measures are not taken, becoming detrimental to wildlife, vegetation and humans. Oil spill cleanups can vary depending on the quantity and type of petroleum released, location of the spill, the rate at which oil is released as well as air and water temperature and the soil’s impact on the breakdown of it’s constituents. Each spill offers lessons in how to improve remediation techniques. While current technologies are far from capable of preventing ecological damage entirely, the type of response to a spill will depend on the quantity and nature of the material spilled and the severity of the hazards presented. Responding in a time efficient way, frequently with minimal notice to these unexpected releases will reduce the eventual costs in potential injury, pollution, dollars, and negative impact to everyone involved. When Tri State Environmental is notified of an emergency situation that needs our services, we efficiently respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to insure a rapid, quality service that minimizes exposure, mitigates the release, minimizes associated costs and assures safety.
