We’ve done this before. Successfully.


Consensus has directed and executed dozens of communications programs related to groundwater, soil and air contamination. We have handled all phases of this work, from serving as the first response team on the ground when initial contaminants are discovered all the way through the issuance of a “No Further Action” letter. We have designed and implemented public outreach strategies in coordination with local, regional, state and federal environmental regulators. Additionally, we have managed the myriad of community and communications issues related to installing treatment systems, injection and extraction wells, monitoring systems and more. We represent clients involved with Superfund sites and we have extensive experience developing strategies to address emerging vapor intrusion issues. We represent some of the largest companies in the world, who trust us because of our directly relevant experience, and then retain us over many years because we get results. We understand their priorities to minimize liabilities, use resources efficiently, and to protect human health.
