Environmental Services

Since 1988, Cameron-Cole staff has provided environmental management services to a diverse clientele of petrochemical, oil and gas, manufacturing, waste management, property development, railroad, and construction industry leaders. Our team of environmental professionals is focused on solving the dynamic array of investigative, compliance, and remedial challenges facing industry today, and into the future.


The scope of Cameron-Cole’s expertise goes beyond that of which most environmental services providers can offer. Our staff includes management professionals who have the hands-on experience necessary to evaluate environmental issues from the clients’ perspective. Cameron-Cole has two goals for its industrial services – to reduce our clients’ compliance burden and to reduce associated costs. Our experience has been gained at facilities across the country that have compliance requirements ranging from simplistic to the more complex.

Cameron-Cole's experienced engineers have successfully designed, installed, and optimized numerous wastewater treatment systems for a variety of industrial applications. We have worked with pretreatment coordinators and other POTW personnel to negotiate discharge limits, and are also trained in preparing and negotiating NPDES permitting

Recent News

PFAS, are no longer an emerging concern, they’re here. Cameron-Cole has expanded its groundwater and soil sampling services to include testing for Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), man-made chemicals that have been manufactured and used in the U.S. and abroad since the 1940s. Emerging research is revealing long-chain PFAS do not break down easily and accumulate, both in the environment as well as the human body. Exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.

These persistent chemicals can be found at railyards, chemical facilities, industrial and production facility sites, landfills, fire stations, superfund sites, department of defense sites, textile/carpet manufacturing facilities, in residential communities with septic tanks, and in public drinking water supplies. PFAS are also found in many consumer products including pizza boxes and other food packaging, commercial household products, non-stick cookware, and in water/stain repellents.

For groundwater and soil testing, individual labs are modifying standard testing methods until other methods have been established, which is expected later this year. Alpha Analytical in Massachusetts is contracted with Cameron-Cole to provide analytical services and consultation on testing for PFAS.
