Creating a future by reclaiming the past.

As a leading mine-reclamation expert, RESPEC’s extensive knowledge and experience in performing restoration and reclamation projects benefit clients in need of practical mining and environmental expertise. Creative, reliable, and economical, we oversee the design and management of the reclamation for both active and abandoned mine sites.  Our interdisciplinary team of experts delivers sound solutions that restore these sites back into productive use while minimizing adverse environmental impacts.

Since 1985, RESPEC’s services have resulted in the reclamation of thousands of acres of Abandoned Mine Land (AML) sites throughout the US.  We have received multiple national reclamation awards based on our cutting-edge approaches and designs from the US Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement Division. RESPEC professionals ensure compliance with the federal and state regulations, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and Clean Water Act (CWA) requirements. Our services in reclamation, remediation, construction management, project management, permitting, engineering, design, and regulatory compliance are integral elements of RESPEC’s cost-saving and successful engineering program.
