Engtech Group has significant experience in the assessment, management and clean up of the environment following chemical and wastewater spills and/or environmental incidents.
Selected examples include:
Spills and chemical cleanups Asbestos identification, monitoring and emergency management Specialised and highly trained technical team State of the art spill response equipment and personal protective equipment Malfunction of treatment systems resulting in discharge exceeding compliance trigger values etc Wastewater overflow from storm events Contamination management and remediation strategies Stormwater contamination from spills Controlled and Dangerous Goods licensed transport (liquid and solid)
For a life threatening incident or pollution emergency call 000 and ask for Fire. To report a pollution emergency that is not life-threatening call DER 24 hr Pollution Watch Hotline: 1300 781 782 Contact an Engtech Group specialist for expert advice and rapid response of residual risk, following the immediate emergency response provided by DFES and/or DER.
The sooner residual impacts are assessed, removed and/or managed, the smaller the chance is of having ongoing risk and liability. Residual impacts can be very expensive to remediate (commonly in excess of $1 Million) and generational in terms of the duration of liability, based upon the strict protocol of the Contaminated Sites Act, 2003.
