What Is Environmental Engineering?

Environmental engineering is a multidisciplinary field that seeks to address current and future environmental problems through the development and implementation of technology. It aims to improve the environment through the protection of human health and safety and the health of our ecosystems.

The field faces many different challenges today. One of them is soil contamination. Mining, agricultural expansion, industrialization, and unsustainable environmental practices of the past have all left behind a legacy of pollution. Older generations didn't consider the impact of their actions on the environment. As a result, the soil is not as healthy and rich as it once was. The food grown in it is not as nutrient-dense, the plants are not as resistant to disease, and the crops are not able to grow as large.  


The effects of contaminated land on the environment are varied, but often severe. For example, some of the chemicals that are released can travel via water sources, ending up in local waterways such as rivers, streams and lakes. When this happens, the chemicals can eventually be consumed by wildlife and contaminate plants and crops that are grown in the area. Millions of acres are known to be contaminated by both active and abandoned industrial facilities.


Achieving a sustainable environment is an ongoing process. The field of environmental engineering is both a growing and evolving field as it’s constantly adapting to the changes that are taking place in the world around us. It applies scientific, technical and technological concepts to the design, development, and management of systems that reduce environmental and ecological impact.



Fisher Engineering Limited is a full-service licenced contractor specializing in services ranging from environmental assessment to site remediation, Designated Substance Surveys, and other environmental engineering services. You can also learn more about environmental site assessments and geotechnical investigation through our blog.


Some of the services we offer:

  • Environmental Site Investigations: Research and documentation on the site's history, including:

    • Phase 1 ESA: Initial assessment to determine potential contamination, informing further investigation needs.

    • Phase 2 ESA: Follows Phase 1, focuses on subsurface testing if contamination likelihood detected, aiming to establish contamination extent.

    • Phase 3 ESA: Involves remediation and cleanup if contamination exceeds regulations found in Phase 2 assessment.

  • Geotechnical Engineering: Assessing soil quality for construction foundations, considering factors like stability, load-bearing capacity, and settlement.

  • Laboratory Analysis: Gathering soil, water, and gas samples for thorough analysis, involving well construction observation to inform engineering decisions.

  • Livable Environments: Ensuring habitable spaces by evaluating air quality, assessing methane gas levels, and identifying potential hazards like asbestos through careful analysis.

  • Remediation/Cleanup: Formulating detailed plans for addressing contamination or environmental issues, implementing actions to mitigate risks and restore the environment. Developing effective remediation strategies, executing cleanup operations, and closely monitoring progress to achieve environmentally sound outcomes.
