|You could cover the whole world with asphalt, but sooner or later green grass would break through.
||Attributed to Ilya Ehrenburg, The New York Times Book Review, October 22, 1967, p.1. Unverified
|God has lent us the earth for our life; it is a great entail. It belongs as much to those who are to come after us, and whose names are already written in the book of creation, as to us; and we have no right, by anything that we do or neglect, to involve them in unnecessary penalties, or deprive them of benefits which it was in our power to bequeath.

can provide project management services for the full range of remedial
services including the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of
various environmental systems. It
is not necessary to know everything about the nature and extent of
contamination before a remedial approach can be selected.
In fact, knowing the options available can help focus any follow-up
factors to be considered include the property value, cleanup cost,
remediation time frame, safety of workers and nearby residents, and any
long-term liability to the property owner.
a Phase II Environmental Site Investigation has identified that a property
has been contaminated by hazardous materials, the next step is to identify
the most appropriate strategy for cleanup.
Using existing information and reports, the project team will
review the data and determine if there is a real need to undertake
remedial action, or whether there are data gaps that must first be
addressed. Whatever the
source or extent of contamination, Targhee can quickly design and
implement a remedial action plan that is cost effective for the level and
nature of contamination present and the intended use of the property.
the process, the project manager will keep the client apprised of the
situation and ensure that all decisions are made in the most efficient
manner consistent with the property owner’s needs, desires, and
responsibilities. A true
understanding of the physical, chemical and toxicological properties of
the contaminants is essential in recommending the most economical remedial
approach. Moreover, this
approach must be defended in all documents submitted to regulatory
authorities and be based solely on sound scientific principles, especially
if there is public controversy associated with the subject property.
