According to the USDOT, railroads, pipeline operators, marine vessel operators and interstate motor carriers operate in the U.S across an estimated 6,000,000 miles of highway, rail, navigable channels and pipeline. With that kind of distance and associated volume, it is inevitable that accidents will occur, trains will derail, ships will sink and pipelines will rupture. The need to support such a remarkable industry begins with a reliable, experienced and well-trained environmental services contractor.
