Environmental Consultants support railroads, coal mining operations, grain facilities, frac sand operations, steel mills, trucking and intermodal operations and general industry with a host of project management services. Consultants may be called upon to help resolve long-standing, chronic problems such as contaminated industrial sites or old fuel storage tanks, or they may be retained as a result of immediate situations like chemical spills resulting from derailments.
Environmental Consultants typically rely on contractors to provide the equipment and manpower to perform the work they oversee. Hulcher Services is the ideal choice for Environmental Consultants for four reasons.

|Case Study - Hulcher Services Performs Tank Farm Removal Project on Six 3,000-Gallon Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)
While excavating a piece of property, the railroad discovered a buried tank farm of six 3,000-gallon underground storage tanks (USTs). The railroad needed a contractor to clean out and remove the tanks and refill the area so it could be used for other purposes.
|Case Study - Undercutter Removes Contaminated Soil During Railyard Environmental Remediation
A 500-foot stretch of track at the railyard was contaminated. The affected track surrounded a switch on one of three active and busy lines in that immediate part of the railyard. The railroad needed a contractor with superior railroad and environmental experience to remove the contaminated soil with an off-track undercutter and replace it with clean fill.
