Railroads

Scientific, Engineering, and Permitting Expertise for Private Rail Owners and Operators

Anchor QEA has supported railroad projects around the United States by applying our scientific, engineering, and permitting expertise for several private rail owners and operators throughout the country. Our team includes national leaders who are experts in strategizing and managing contaminated sites, including former railroad maintenance and fueling facilities, former wood‑treating sites owned/operated by railroads, and railroad-owned land with industrial tenants. We have provided successful remedial solutions for long-abandoned legacy sites, fully active industrial operations, and undeveloped sites where future activity is planned. Under federal (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act [CERCLA]) and state programs, our team excels at supporting these projects due to our familiarity with the regulatory agencies and their requirements. Our railroad support services include the following:

  • Maintenance and fueling facilities support
  • Integration of cleanup with redevelopment
  • Forensic support
  • Environmental site assessments
  • Derailment support
  • Railroad health and safety training
