At the Helm

Restoring environmental stability requires a unique combination of scientific knowledge, engineering ingenuity, and persistent work. As a founding member of Environmental Management Group, Inc. in 1989, and president of EMG Remediation Services, Kurt Spiess maintains a hands-on commitment to find the best possible resolutions of site challenges. With minimal bureaucracy and a focus on doing the work right, Kurt institutes practical protocols and commands efficient operations. With a degree in environmental science and background in biology, ecology, and construction, he has spent more than 25 years applying his knowledge and experience to contain hazards and promote environmental restoration.

Our Objectives

Contain. Clarify. Remove. Restore.

Ultimately our goal is to leave every site more environmental stable than how we found it. To achieve that goal, EMG approaches each environmental challenge focused on four objectives: contain, clarify, remove, and restore. The objectives promote methodical, sensible steps to achieve the results we expect and our clients deserve.

Contain. The first step is containment and reducing exposure. Every effort is made to minimize the spread of contamination, prevent any further damage, and limit who and what comes in contact with hazards.

Clarify. Once contained, the next step is defining the work needed and delineating suspect contamination. Clarifying the scope of work provides the information to engineer the most feasible, efficient remediation.

Remove. This involves the hands-on, hard work to tackle the cleanup and removal of contamination and waste. Work is methodical, efficient, and professional.

Restore. Once the contamination is nullified or addressed, efforts are made to improve the site and prevent an issue from reoccurring. Where necessary, we install monitoring systems to check progress, ventilation systems to improve decontamination, or construct drainage systems to prevent continued infiltration. We re-insulate, re-grade, rebuild, and replant…, backfill, sweep, vacuum, and wipe…, to ensure the site is better than we found it. EMG validates environmental compliance and assures the results we expect.

Our Philosophy

Implement Practical Solutions.

Concern does not mean catastrophe. We believe simple, practical strategies developed with unwavering integrity generate solutions to even the most challenging environmental concerns. With scientific expertise and real-world experience, we bridge environmental stewardship and property remediation. Our success is built on four incremental objectives: Contain, Clarify, Remove, Restore. These steps illuminate, simplify, and promote practical solutions. Effective environmental remediation comes down to identifying obstacles, engineering the best approach, doing the hard work right, and validating the outcome.

Practice the Golden Rule.

We treat our clients like we want to be treated: fairly, professionally, and respectfully. We curb costs. We provide great service. We deliver the practical solutions our clients need to restore environmental stability. How? We utilize the most current, scientifically-proven standards to remediate environmental problems and do the hard work to get the job done right.
