Every job is an Environmental job – you can’t work in our industry without affecting the environment in which you work. Protecting the environment, wherever we work, is always critical. Some projects require more specific attention to the surroundings, beyond ensuring the use of Best Management Practices at the site.
Many of our projects are environment-focused, from ash pond capping and closure to dust mitigation, river restoration or renewable energy innovation. Preserving the clean water we work in or near, reducing air pollution and improving fish habitat are just some examples of ways that we’ve contributed to protecting the environment.
