The United Illuminating Company commissioned EnviroMed with the goal to perform inspections of more than 200 vaults around New Haven County. We assessed the sites to see if there were hazardous materials that could be encountered in the vaults. The surveys and inspections were done for materials including PCBs, asbestos, and lead. Detailed drawings were provided as part of the inspection to document location and presence of any materials that might be encountered when entering the vaults. These studies will be use for the future planning purposes by U.I. in order to upgrade customer vaults as necessary.
EnviroMed Services has provided services to many Utility Companies throughout New England and New York.

EnviroMed Services provides safety training based on OSHA regulations to the Wallingford Department of Public Works facilities and the Electric Division facilities. EnviroMed Services provides OSHA training programs for the Wallingford Electric Division for the past 10 years to meet their responsibility under OSHA regulations.
