From traffic accidents to mechanical failures, GEC offers clients 24/7 Emergency Spill Response. Our experienced and accredited team utilizes GEC’s personal fleet of response vehicles to contain, remove and dispose of both hazardous and nonhazardous waste on land and inland water. GEC understands the importance of any successful spill response depends on rapid response and the ability to leave the site back to its pre-spill condition.
Upon arriving at an incident, GEC’s first and foremost objective is to identify the product that has been released then work to contain and remove that prodct. Larger and more complex spills that may have impacted soil and waterways may require an initial stabilization, followed by abatement and finally decommissioning. GEC understands that there are no “typical” spills and that each incident will present a multitude of variables, challenges and environmental concerns; however, our operational system meets these variables by maintaining an inventory or materials and equipment that can be mobilized from our office within minues of receiving a call.
Our example spill responses include:
• Petroleum releases
• Chemical releases
• Tanker roll-overs
• Pipe ruptures
• Storage tank releases (both UST & AST)
