Over 300 Tons of Crude Oil and Brine Impacted Soil Excavated

Thanks to modern environmental regulations and caring oil and gas producers/developers, oil and gas exploration activities are typically harmless to the environment.  Historical oil and gas production activities, however, were not so kind.

During the summer of 2012, Lakeshore Environmental, Inc. (LEI) assisted a lakeshore oil producer in the voluntary remediation of over 300 tons (220 cubic yards) of crude oil and brine impacted soil present at a facility as a result of this historical legacy.  This activity will result in the ongoing protection of the drinking water and sensitive wildlife habitats in the area.
