Meets Client Specific Needs: Our Environmental Consultants deliver complete site reclamation solutions that can be easily tailored to meet any client’s needs.
Our Services Include:
Ridgeline will complete Reclamation activities in an efficient manner that will meet your desired Reclamation outcomes in compliance with Regulatory requirements. Ridgeline provides our clients with services that complement all Reclamation stages. This process reduces the number of site visits required as well as the time and cost required to gain closure.
Prior to completing surface reclamation Ridgeline will work with the client to ensure all previous phases of work are complete and meeting regulatory requirements (Phase I, II ESA’s & Remediation). Our Reclamation process begins with a pre-reclamation assessment to evaluate site conditions and formulate a plan that aligns with current regulatory requirements.
Our team of qualified reclamation specialists have experience with all agricultural and forested land uses (cultivated lands, forested lands and native grasslands) and can offer sound rehabilitation solutions for sensitive specified lands such as riparian areas and wetlands. Ridgeline personnel provide expertise in vegetation establishment, monitoring and management to ensure compatibility with surrounding land use.
At the completion of a reclamation project, a Ridgeline Environmental Consultant will conduct a Detailed Site Assessment to demonstrate equivalent land use capability.
Application for Reclamation Certificates:
Ridgeline’s field professionals are supported by a technical team that ensures the applications are completed accurately and submitted to the appropriate regulatory body.

Trusted Risk Assessment:
Success has been realized on a large scale by minimizing or eliminating contaminated soil volumes by utilizing Risk Assessment based remedial approaches. These approaches either independently or in concurrence with in-situ or ex-situ remedial technologies have significantly reduced safety risk, carbon foot print, client liability and total project cost.
What is Risk Assessment?
Risk assessment is the method used for predicting whether a risk of adverse effects on the environment exists based on the exposure to a chemical substance. It involves professional judgment and sound scientific rationale.
Risk is the chance that a receptor will experience a negative health effect when exposed to a hazard. A hazard is a source/substance that causes negative health effects on a human or ecological receptor.
Factors that contribute to the risk level of a site include:
When is it used?
Risk Assessment is used at complex sites where the assumptions used for Tier 1 guidelines or Tier 2 guideline modification or development do not apply. The purpose of a risk assessment is to produce a realistic, defensible, and representative estimate of risks to both human and ecological receptors that are present at a site.
Risk Assessment Options and Saving You Money
Risk assessment options can provide substantial cost savings to remediation projects by reducing the soil volumes that need to be removed. The application of risk assessment options allows Ridgeline to provide innovative value added solutions to our clients.
Soil and Groundwater Remediation:
Ridgeline offers a wide variety of Environmental Site Assessments associated with the Environmental Industry. Each type of assessment targets a specific inquiry and may be implemented separately or in combination, to satisfy each specific Site Assessment.
