We support the mission of the DoD and other federal agencies to make the world a cleaner and safer place

The Parsons team has worked at more than 200 U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) facilities worldwide, and we are highly experienced in supporting the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, National Park Service (NPS), Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), and other federal agencies in their environment-related missions. Our work supporting the environment includes identification, investigation, evaluation, and remediation of surface and subsurface sites contaminated with munitions, hazardous, toxic, and radiological waste.

Innovation for a cleaner and safer future

Our investigation and evaluation of contaminated sites often lead to design and remediation. We have developed and tested all types of remediation methods to determine the most effective and efficient techniques for cleaning up contaminated soil, water, and air. Our pioneering cleanup methods rely on plants (phytoremediation), adsorption technologies (lead remediation), and microbes (molasses and vegetable oil injections). Parsons is also pioneering the next generation of cleanup technologies such as perchlorate. Because of the changing regulations and guidance, environmental work continues to require innovative approaches. Examples of our work supporting the environment include:

  • Munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) detection and clearance
  • Environmental compliance
  • Environmental remediation
  • Air, water, and soil quality studies
  • Operations and maintenance (O&M) of remediation systems
  • Wetlands ecology studies
