Pollution Cleanup Costs - Oversight and Audit Services

We provide cost oversight of pollution cleanups to ensure that you are not being overcharged.  Although the optimum time to audit costs is while cleanup is ongoing, we have conducted hundreds of "post mortem" audits of cleanup invoices. 

Our audits have included cleanup costs relative to spills or releases on land and water involving chemicals, oil, gas, jet fuel, diesel, and dust particles.   Cleanup costs relative to these incidents have been as low as $1,000 and as high as $130,000,000.
