Spill Response

nichols environmental 17

Nichols staff is on call to respond to environmental incidents. Through an effective emergency response program, we have been able to reduce potential environmental liabilities for our clients as a result of an inadvertent release or incident.

Nichols has responded to numerous releases relating to transportation (tractor-trailer), pipeline, rail, and from storage tanks on industrial, commercial and agricultural properties.  Contaminants released include fuels, crude oil, chemicals and fertilizers.  Our spill response units will mobilize throughout Western Canada and into the Northwest Territories.

Working cooperatively with the initial response workers, we have found that releases can be managed both cost effectively and in a responsible manner, thus reducing our client’s contingent liability.

Our response programs have included:

  • installation and operation of dual-phase vacuum extraction (DPVE) equipment
  • air stripping towers
  • spill booms
  • cut-off dams to control contaminant migration 

Through our network of contractor affiliations, we provide timely and cost-effective spill response management.

An important factor in any release is the regulatory process and closure reporting. Nichols Environmental has a strong working relationship with the regulatory authorities to assist our clients in managing their releases with the regulators.
