Introduction

Experts in the field of environmental engineering are professionals in their field. Environmental engineers are tasked with identifying environmental problems and developing effective, ethical, and socially responsible solutions to combat these environmental issues. This relates to work that could improve recycling habits, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control. This may also relate to minising and mitigating the impact that air, water, soil and noise has on engineering projects, as well as ensuring that the design and planning of certain engineering processes are dealt with in a matter that does not disturb the general humanitarian and natural environment.

Environmental engineers would be of great assistance to the legal process, as their specialisation in:

• the provision and operation of facilities for potable water supply, wastewater and solid waste collection, treatment and disposal, and air pollution prevention to protect public health and the environment.

• The designing of sewage treatment, water supply and refuse disposal systems

• The development of environmental health standards and checks that these are met.

Experts in this field would greatly assisting in the legal process. Environmental engineers would be able to determine the efficacy of certain engineering projects in minimising environmental impacts. Environmental engineers specialise in utilising principles in both biology and chemistry to develop solutions that would otherwise be unthought of. Environmental engineers would be able to comment on whether engineering projects considered the environmental impact of their construction – particularly as to whether damage, injury, discomfort, or negligence may have arisen due to a failure on the part of a business to properly consider certain environmental factors.

Experts in this area come from multiple fields of study. Professionals in this field may range from those studying in the field of biology, engineering, and chemistry.
