Working with industry, the Nevada Mining Association, and the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP), Broadbent designed the framework for PCS management at mines in Nevada which was used by NDEP to prepare their Guidance for Mine-Site Petroleum-Contaminated Soil (PCS) Management Plans. Broadbent is uniquely qualified to consult mine operators with PCS management based on this experience.
Among our many solutions, Broadbent developed a tool specifically designed for mine operators to manage PCS. This tool is available to our clients and is used to track PCS analytical data, compare data with screening levels, calculate cumulative risk, and simplify decisions related to PCS placement.
Our overall PCS management related services include:
- Disposal location evaluation and closure
