Site reclamation and environmental remediation go hand-in-hand, which is why you often see the two terms used interchangeably. In regulatory terms, site reclamation is the process of restoring “disturbed lands” to their original use, or to an alternate, environmentally productive use. Either way, the end goal is a healthy environment.
The term “disturbed lands” refers to sites where new land use – typically drilling, mining, and large-scale construction – impacts the environment around the site. Regulatory definitions of what constitutes disturbed lands vary by area and government, but the variance isn’t extreme. Every oilfield site, for example, leads to disturbed lands, even if a new well ultimately turns out to be dry.
Environmental remediation, site reclamation, and the restoration of disturbed lands are our passion at Iron Horse. We work with our clients to ensure that our site reclamation plans are environmentally friendly and budget-conscious. The skilled, knowledgeable teams at Iron Horse have vast experience in reclaiming all types of disturbed sites, including oil well reclamation.
On most work-sites, reclamation is an ongoing process, even while the site is still in use. That’s especially true on oilfield sites, where regulations often limit the amount of land that can be disturbed during any one part of the drilling process. Iron Horse offers on-site reclamation options for sites where ongoing reclamation is required.
In addition to general site reclamation, Iron Horse offers specialty services like building demolition, reclamation for sites damaged by fire, and gas plant decommissioning. We offer site regrading and have a full range of equipment to handle many sizeable jobs. Once your site has been sufficiently reclaimed, Iron Horse handles vegetation management, to ensure that local plant-life thrives well into the future. Robust vegetation is beneficial to local wildlife, and one of the keys to maintaining healthy ecosystems.
Iron Horse has the experience, equipment and skilled employees you need to get the job done right. We take our commitment to the environment seriously, and strive to maintain the natural beauty found all across western Canada.
