Remediation and Regulatory Support
Remediation and regulatory support require detailed coordination of planned remediation standards with local, state and federal guidelines.
When a site is found to have unacceptable levels of radioactive materials, that site is typically remediated, i.e., restored by reducing the concentrations of radioactive materials and/or the exposure to radioactive materials. Remediation often involves regulators, such as the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and/or State and local authorities. Cooperation with regulators and stake holders is necessary throughout the process, from investigation to site release, and can significantly reduce the time and cost of investigation and remediation by avoiding unnecessary sampling, needless removal of materials, and non-essential analytical processes.
