Cleaning up in Post-Katrina New Orleans
In September and October of 2005, and June of 2006, Glenrose Engineering provided community-scale remediation services for toxic soils using aerobic and anaerobic microbes, fungi and plants, followed by sampling and testing. Cleanup of fuels, chlorinated organic compounds and toxic metals was a crucial part of re-establishing safer, healthier neighborhoods after Hurricane Katrina.
Some of the guides and manuals provided to returning residents included these, written wholly or in part by Glenrose Engineering staff:
