IEc is frequently called upon to structure and facilitate the implementation of the natural resource damage
assessment (NRDA) and restoration process at sites with extensive environmental contamination. In addition to
its success at large, complex sites, IEc has achieved successful outcomes at numerous smaller sites, where federal and state as well as tribal
governments may have an interest in ensuring the restoration of injured natural resources.
Our experience spans the history and geographic breadth of hazardous waste site damage assessments,
from polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) contamination in New Bedford Harbor and the Hudson River to the Cold War legacy of plutonium
production at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hanford Site. In all cases, we maximize the use of reliable,
existing data before recommending additional studies. When knowledge gaps demand original research, we
focus on helping our clients identify the most defensible and cost-effective solutions.
