Environmental Pollution and Ecotoxicology in North Carolina

Environmental Restoration

Our contaminants specialists collect and analyze data, search, collate and interpret toxicological literature, and conduct or review environmental risk assessments to foster cleanup of polluted sites, improve habitat conditions for fish and wildlife, and secure compensation for resources lost or degraded by hazardous waste releases or spills.  Contaminant specialists are often called in by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Coast Guard, or other Federal or State agencies responsible for cleaning up a contaminated area, to ensure that fish and wildlife and their habitat are adequately protected during, and upon completion of, the cleanup.  Here’s a sampling:
