ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES PROVIDED
Emergency Response Services
Patriot’s personnel are highly skilled and experienced in major crisis management in all phases including command, assessment, planning, documentation, logistics, operations, and health and safety. Following federal and state regulatory requirements, we are held to the highest standards for spill response and pride ourselves on our unparalleled ability to respond quickly to incidents in the areas where we provide immediate emergency services, no matter the size of the spill, on land or on water.
Industrial Cleaning Services
At Patriot, we provide our clients with high-quality, comprehensive industrial cleaning and related services. From routine pressure washing to complex tank cleaning and facility decontamination, Patriot has the skilled employees and state-of-the-art equipment to handle any industrial cleaning requirement. Patriot owns and maintains the equipment necessary and employs the professional personnel to safely and efficiently complete client tasks while minimizing impact on day-to-day operations.
Waste Management Services
Patriot is prepared to assist with regularly scheduled disposal services and special one-time events. Technical aspects of waste packaging and disposal coordination are our specialty. Patriot’s fleet of stainless steel and black iron vacuum trucks, roll-off trucks, disposal bins, and specialty hazardous waste management equipment make the job of waste management, transportation and disposal more cost-effective and less time-consuming.
Patriot combines extensive experience in emergency response with all facets of disaster recovery, including debris management, collection, reduction, recycling, mitigation, and disposal. Our combined Hazmat training and debris management experience allowed efficient operations during national disasters such as Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Katrina, as well as various wildfires and floods throughout California. Debris included vegetative, C&D, white goods, small motorized equipment, e-waste, asbestos containing materials (ACM), and household hazardous waste (HHW).
Patriot offers both back-end remediation for spill sites as well as the full array of demolition and site clean-up services associated with long-term, preplanned remedial activities. All of this is grouped into our Remediation Services business line. These services are an excellent complement to the rest of Patriot’s offerings, as we have the equipment and expertise to support virtually any type of remediation project. These services make it much easier for our clients to accomplish their site clean-up goals because they no longer need to seek out multiple firms to accomplish a variety of tasks.
In many cases, conventional methods for soil removal with a large excavator, or even a small backhoe, is impractical or even unsafe. The project may call for exposing pipelines or other utilities, or perhaps the soil to be removed is in a very tight space that does not allow for large equipment to be utilized, or maybe there are just too many unknowns beneath the ground surface. Hydro excavation, which is also referred to as “hydrovac excavation” is a safe method of surgical excavation that uses high-pressure water to break up soil along with a powerful vacuum to perform the excavation.
Patriot WasteWater is a non-hazardous water treatment and disposal facility located in the city of Orange, with convenient access to most major Orange County freeways and serving all of Southern California. We will be adding capabilities, including the expansion of contaminant waste streams as well as waste solidification, and we expect to open more locations soon. Patriot WasteWater is currently permitted to handle non-hazardous wastewater with metal contaminants. We are dedicated to providing “best practices” that exceed county, state and federal regulations.
Patriot is an approved and rated Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO) with the U.S. Coast Guard and an Oil Spill Response Organization (OSRO) with the California Department of Fish & Wildlife - Office of Spill Prevention & Response (OSPR). Patriot was the first contractor in the state to have its rating successfully revised as such. Patriot's OSRO Retainer Program allows our clients to benefit from the combined years of experience and expertise in spill response, extensive labor force, and the large quantity of strategically placed response assets.
As with other industry sectors, virtually all of Patriot's industrial cleaning services are applicable to the upstream oil sector. Pit, tank, and rig cleaning services are performed daily in the “oil patch.” Patriot provides specific services for drilling rig operations with the goal of minimizing waste streams and increasing the efficiency of waste management, both of which decrease overall costs. As part of this effort, we have developed a waste solidification process for drilling muds and drill cuttings that employs a specially-designed pug mill that is utilized alongside active drilling operations.
