ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the international engineering and project management company AMEC PLC's projects in two contaminated sites in Manitoba and New Mexico. It says that the environmental site assessment (ESA) in Manitoba has identified two distinct contaminant plumes such as nitrates and petroleum hydrocarbon, which were remediated by the recirculation system from Federated Co-Operatives Ltd. Furthermore, the New Mexico project uses bioremediation system to clean the tetrachloroethene (PCE).
