Contamination Assessment and Remediation
Is It in the Soil? Is it in the Groundwater?
EEC is Well Equipped for Contamination Assessment and Remediation.
Investigating contaminated soils and groundwater requires qualified personnel and sophisticated equipment. EEC has the necessary expertise and resources to obtain accurate site assessments and devise solutions.
The process begins with site history research. EEC’s specialists then perform a site assessment to gather information about soil types and determine the direction and rate of groundwater flow through soils or clays. Factoring in the types of contaminants present, EEC evaluates actual or potential effects of an underground pollution source.
With the information gathered from this initial investigation, EEC can prepare a site assessment report (SAR), design a remedial action plan (RAP) and implement remediation initiatives. We interact effectively with regulators on the client’s behalf, helping to secure environmental permits.
We Bring Solutions to Soil and Groundwater Contamination Problems.
EEC can manage a complete assessment and remediation project or perform selected services such as these:
- Site history research
- Soil and groundwater testing and delineation
- Regulatory liaison and environmental permitting
- Monitoring well installation and sampling
- Innovative in site remediation
Manufacturing clients attest to EEC’s record of success in projects such as supervising the cleanup of wastewater ponds or implementing a groundwater retrieval and treatment system for a battery recycling site.
One EEC project proved remarkable enough for presentation at a national meeting of the Air and Waste Management Association. EEC used a process called solidification to literally made something useful — a parking lot — out of a tract of contaminated soil. Chemically bound into a solid mass, the waste was rendered safe and functional. The client was understandably elated, having satisfied regulators, minimized liability and gained a physical asset, while saving millions of dollars that would have been spent to haul away dirt.
