Company Information and History

History

Environmental Troubleshooters, Inc. (ET) is a comprehensive environmental consulting and contracting firm that was established in 1995.  During our history, we have conducted over 2,000 projects regulated under Superfund, Petroleum Remediation and Brownfields, Underground and Aboveground Storage Tank (UST/AST), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Clean Water Act and Asbestos programs.  The hazardous substances / contaminants that ET has experience working with include petroleum products, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), heavy metals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), asbestos, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), agricultural chemicals, mixed industrial wastes, tank and sump sludges and regulated building materials.  ET has also performed projects under Level B, C and D conditions.

Approach

Unlike traditional environmental firms, ET has the ability to provide a full turn-key service.  Our turn-key process assesses the project, devises the scope of work, collects samples, designs the remedy, provide technical oversight, performs the physical labor and contracting service to remedy the problem and completes the reports.  This turn-key or design-build process provides onsite flexibility to make real-time decisions based on field observations.  This designed build feature also limits the shutdown of projects to solicited or rebid project scope changes, which ultimately provides a more effective, timely and cost efficient project.
