The proper management of contamination discovered while performing work in roadways, easements and right-of-ways is critical for project success. By properly managing such issues, the likelihood of completing the work safely and on-time and on-budget is increased. Further, it can make it easier to recover the costs associated with managing the contaminated media from those responsible for the contamination. Failure to do so can not only make it difficult to achieve those goals but can potentially result in liability relating to those conditions.
