COWI carries out all forms of contaminated site investigations and remediation of contamination for regional and local authorities and private landowners.

Contaminated soil and ground water can pose a risk to human health and nature and represent important financial liabilities. A systematic approach to manage the risks and liabilities related to contaminated sites is therefore of utmost importance.
