Emergency Spill Response

On call 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

Spills of petroleum or hazardous materials can damage the environment unless immediate action is taken. REI responds quickly to emergency spills by mobilizing equipment, resources, and personnel to the site. 

REI’s spill response team offers 24-hour response to spills or releases of petroleum, nonhazardous, and hazardous materials that adversely impact or threaten public health, welfare, or the environment. Our capabilities and experience cover a broad spectrum of environmentally sensitive incidents involving hazardous and non-hazardous materials, the most common of which is diesel fuel and other petroleum product spills.

REI is a regional responder for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). We know the WDNR spill coordinators and they know us. We not only clean up the spill, but prepare reports for the WDNR and other agencies in order to close the spill case file.
