State Specific Environmental Compliance Knowledge

Reliance personnel have amassed a vast knowledge of state-specific rules and regulations required to obtain closure and/or releases of liabilities in all the regions that Reliance serves. From Land Recycling/Brownfield projects to gasoline station tank closures, REI’s knowledge is kept current through continuing education courses and seminars, hands-on experience and well-developed relationships/interactions with key state regulatory personnel. Reliance personnel boast a long history of successful closures. We will not perpetuate your project, and from start to finish, Reliance’s focus will be on closing issues and ending the drain to your bottom line.

Site Characterizations, Closures and Release of Liability Procurements

Whether addressing simple or complex environmental issues, Reliance develops site-specific characterization strategies to efficiently assess and understand the issue(s), leading to the formulation of an effective remediation plan. REI will present options consistent with your particular goals and objectives. In short…“one path to closure does NOT fit all”. Closure, No Further Action and/or Release of Liability is the goal, and Reliance will get you there.

Petroleum Release Clean-Ups

Reliance performs commercial, industrial and residential surface and tank release response and clean-ups – from heating fuel to gasoline to other petroleum products. REI also specializes in insurance claims concerning both residential and commercial interior/exterior petroleum releases. Utilizing the latest eco-friendly methods to naturally remediate residual soil and/or ground water contamination, Reliance will move quickly and efficiently to address your release.

Environmental Property Management

REI can be an extension of your management team, without the added expense of having to hire a full time employee. Take the worry and concern over environmental compliance off you plate. As an example, if you own or manage a commercial mall or office complex Reliance can perform annual compliance inspections to determine if your tenants (e.g. dry cleaning facilities, gasoline stations, boat repair/marina operations) are putting you at risk for fines and penalties or affecting the value of your property through improper business practices. If an issue is discovered, REI will address the matter directly and provide compliance reports for your records – which can have obvious benefits when refinancing or selling a property.

Soil, Groundwater and Soil Vapor Remediation

Reliance Environmental, Inc. personnel have accumulated decades of experience in successfully addressing environmental issues associated with soil, ground water and indoor vapor intrusion involving LNAPL’s, DNAPL’s and heavy metals. We provide a wealth of knowledge in the design, construction and monitoring of a variety of remediation systems, from traditional to cutting edge. Reliance is not committed to “selling” a particular remediation technique and to making it fit every situation. Instead, based on your goals, site characteristics and the nature of the contaminant, we will recommend the remediation technology or technologies that most effectively address your situation.

Under/Above Ground Storage Tank Closures

REI provides certified and experienced storage tank closure services. From large-scale tank farms to residential heating oil tanks, Reliance provides project management/supervision to complete turn-key service. We are prepared to meet your needs.

ASTM Environmental Site Assessments

Reliance Environmental, Inc. provides complete site assessment services. Phase 1 and 2 investigations can be completed under expedited terms at no addition cost. The goal is to identify potential historic and/or current environmental liabilities for a property. Typically, the cost for site assessments is very minor relative to the investment and provides a level of protection and peace of mind for the buyer. Reliance is responsive, thorough and professional. All work is performed by experienced personnel and reviewed by a licensed geologist. Contact us for a free estimate and consultation.

Complete SPCC Plan Services

Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure plans are a requirement of the USEPA for the purpose of implementing spill prevention and release response procedures, personnel training, documentation/recordkeeping and storage containment. Trained Reliance personnel will audit your facility, identify potential environmental liabilities and recommend any steps necessary to bring you into compliance with state and federal regulations. REI provides full SPCC services, including:

- Tier I plans for qualified facilities
- Professional Engineer certified plans for non-Tier I facilities
- Preparedness, Prevention and Contingency (PPC) Plans
- Spill Prevention and Response (SPR) Plans
- Facility Response Plans (FRP) for airports, terminals and other large facilities
- Annual training for facility personnel

Geographic Information System (GIS) Services

GIS is a comprehensive database that allows for the storage, manipulation, analysis and display of geographically referenced material. It can be utilized as part of a site-wide property and asset management program, bringing detailed information for a facility quickly and accurately to your desk or laptop computer. As such, the need to sort through files and storage boxes can be avoided. GIS is particularly beneficial for businesses with multiple facilities, as one person can easily access detailed data for any facility, including: permitting renewals, SPCC plan deadlines, NPDES compliance, storage tank capacities and age of systems, etc., thereby facilitating budgetary planning. REI’s GIS program is designed to reduce your costs, prevent potential fines, potentially reduce the size of your management workforce and facilitate management responsibilities.

Storm Water Compliance (SWPPPs, BMPs, Training)

Effectively managing storm water discharges reduces downstream erosion, water quality degradation, and flooding, while helping mitigate the adverse effects of changes in land use on the aquatic environment. Reliance provides the following services to address your storm water related needs:

- Facility inspections and permitting assistance
- Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs)
- Design and implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs)
- Quarterly and annual sampling
- Preparation of Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs)
- Retention and discharge basin design and clean-outs

Insurance Claim Environmental Liability Determinations

Reliance performs this service directly for insurance companies, adjusters, claimants and homeowners. REI can manage, supervise or directly perform clean-up/remediation activities resulting from an environmental incident such as a storage tank failure or a vehicular accident-related fuel tank release. Reliance will move quickly and effectively to address the matter in whatever capacity you require and will provide timely electronic updates so that you are kept informed.

Fire and Environmental Demolition Projects

Fire and non-fire demolition projects can present unexpected environmental hazards, such as storage tanks, various paint, pesticide and chemical storage, fire suppressant residuals, and flooding within the structure. Reliance has the experience to provide assessment, management/supervision or full turn-key services to address these issues.
