10/03/16 How Environmental Remediation Services Were Utilized Before Hurricane Lester
Time:[10/3/2016]

Entire communities find themselves at risk when severe weather hits. That’s when it pays to have the assistance of an experienced environmental remediation specialist who is trained to prevent widespread damage. Before Hurricane Lester hit earlier this year, Hawaii’s Department of Transportation contracted Pacific Commercial Services to help with its storm preparation. The company has been Honolulu’s go-to environmental and construction service since 2001. Specializing in environmental remediation, industrial cleaning, dewatering, and hazardous waste removal, their team of specialists helped formulate a plan to lift debris from the Kalihi Stream as a way to try to lessen the impact of Hurricane Lester. The Department of Transportation hired the contractors to help prevent the kind of property damage residents saw after Tropical Storm Darby, which caused stream overflows and rampant flooding on Umi Street in July. environmental-remediationPacific Commercial Services was on standby the entire weekend to try to reduce damage on a variety of fronts. The Department of Transportation also worked with the company to inspect storm drains in areas known to have flooding problems. These drains were cleared of debris and checked to ensure they operated at maximum capacity. While the storm eventually weakened and did not hit the Hawaiian Islands, Pacific Commercial Services demonstrated its expertise as a trusted provider of environmental remediation.
