Many industries face uncertainties created by unforeseen or underestimated environmental concerns and liabilities, which can impact a company's bottom line. Trihydro helps guide commercial and industrial clients in identifying and managing environmental
risk associated with operations, acquisitions, and divestitures.
Trihydro works with environmental managers, legal representatives, asset managers, insurance underwriters, and claims managers to assess, quantify, and manage environmental risk. Whether we are helping clients purchase additional facilities, combine
assets through mergers and acquisitions, obtain loans/funding, prepare insurance policies for facilities, or evaluating permits and operations, we know how important it is to recognize and manage the potential environmental risk at each site.
Our technical, regulatory, insurance, and business experts have previously worked for industry, academia, regulatory agencies, and insurance companies and provide clients with a variety of risk management services, including due diligence and
site assessments; ASTM-compliant Phase I (E1527-21) and II (E1903-19) Environmental Site Assessments (ESA); regulatory permitting, compliance support, and auditing; insurance claims forensics and management; and insurance risk control.
We help a variety of clients, including commercial and industrial companies, insurance underwriters and claims managers, utility providers, energy companies, oil and gas companies, attorneys, capital/real estate investors, and accounting firms,
with understanding, evaluating, and managing risks associated with real or perceived environmental issues at thousands of sites.
An important component of risk management is understanding the meaning behind site assessment results and developing a path forward that considers potential regulatory impact and land use goals. Trihydro’s services do not end at simply identifying
risks or obtaining chemical analyses of samples. We help clients understand the implications of sampling results, including whether the results must be reported to a regulatory agency and whether or not any chemicals identified in the soil,
groundwater, or soil gas must be remediated. Trihydro guides clients through decisions that must be made to comply with regulations, as well as to minimize the short-term and long-term risk associated with environmental conditions.
When performing due diligence, Trihydro understands the importance of complying with the standards specified by ASTM to satisfy the requirements for conducting "All Appropriate Inquiries" under 40 CFR § 312, not only to establish a landowner
liability defense but also to understand continuing obligations with respect to a contaminated property. Trihydro's due diligence resume covers a range of project sizes and complexities, from single-site property transactions involving a few
soil and groundwater samples to complex, full-scale environmental site investigations involving human health and ecological risk assessments.
