When an emergency release is discovered or suspected, Pyramid Environmental emergency response teams can be on the scene in hours. Our field teams quickly evaluate the extent of environmental impairment and take quick action to minimize damage.
A Representative Project:
Pyramid responded to a tanker spill of toluene/lacoline/mineral spirits in the median of Interstate 40 Business. The tanker spilled 2,500 gallons between 4 lanes of interstate traffic. Our first job was to shift the traffic pattern to allow the cleanup work to proceed, while we worked quickly to restore normal traffic patterns and prevent accidents. To prevent contamination of soil, Pyramid set up an underflow dam and screened the soils. Within two days, the final sampling was completed, the project area was backfilled and the guard rails were put back up. Also, a permanent underflow dam was built to retain any further contaminants. All the work was approved by regulators without comment and the incident was closed.
