Responded to emergency HAZMAT spill; remediated and restored site.
Contained initial spill; performed safe burn of compromised product; recovered spilled materials from creek; performed product solidifi cation, site remediation and site restoration.
A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION:
Hulcher was a major part of the entire project, from initial response all the way through site restoration.
Hulcher Services was called to respond to a substantial hazardous material (HAZMAT) spill. A mass evacuation of the area was ordered as a result of the various materials involved, including methyl ethyl ketone, butadiene, malaic anhydride, lube oil and other products. The customer needed an experienced emergency response / environmental contractor who could clean up the spill and restore the site.
Hulcher assisted in the initial emergency response with teams of trained responders and a full complement of heavy equipment, including track loaders, excavator, backhoes, dump trucks, skid steer, dozers and an emergency response trailer.
After the initial situation was contained, Hulcher supported the customer and other contractors to complete the safe burning of all compromised product. Hulcher also recovered spilled materials from a nearby creek and performed solidification of recovered product. Their environmental team then remediated the entire site and completed site restoration.
Hulcher’s crews were on hand within hours of the initial spill and were integrally involved in the process, all the way from emergency containment to complete cleaning and restoration of the affected area.
Hulcher provided comprehensive support to the customer and emergency responders, and assisted the local community as well. Hulcher crews restored affected residents’ yards and even took care of local livestock owned by people who had been evacuated.
