Soil & Groundwater Investigation

Soil & Groundwater Investigation

The presence of contaminants such as harmful chemicals, petroleum residues and heavy metals in soil and groundwater pose a serious risk to health and the environment. Remediation and development of contaminated sites without evaluating the risks can be costly in the long term. Therefore, soil & groundwater investigation should provide the basis for evaluating risks and planning strategies for remediation and development. Investigating the potential pollution of soil and groundwater includes the following:

Oil Tank Installation

Oil Tank Installation

Do you need to install a new tank in your home or replace an existing one? There are several things you need to consider; such as the type and size of tank, location (indoor, outdoor, over-ground or underground), building regulations, the amount of fuel to be left in the tank, whether there are any underground public utility lines to worry about, and whether any landscaping needs to be done after the oil tank installation.

Oil Tank Sweep

Oil Tank Sweep

There may be an underground oil tank on your property that you are not aware of. Oil tanks that have been buried for several years are usually corroded. Any oil leaking from such tanks contaminate the soil around them and potentially harm your health. But first, you have to locate the tank. Often, the only way to locate an abandoned underground tank is with an oil tank sweep.

Site Remediation

Soil remediation, also called soil washing, is the process of removing pollutants and contaminants from soil using physical, chemical and biological methods. In areas where the level of pollution is high, such as properties and farmlands located near urban and industrial areas, it is essential to maintain the purity of soil, water, and air so that they can support increased cultivation as well as benefit the local population, and flora and fauna.

Oil tank removal

Oil Tank Removal

Old and rusting oil tanks pose a variety of safety, environmental, economic and legal problems for homeowners. The biggest safety and environmental concerns are soil and groundwater contamination caused by oil leaks. Financial and legal concerns include the cost of oil tank removal, the cost of site decontamination, and the risk of running afoul of environmental laws.

Soil Testing

Soil testing is an important procedure for determining the suitability of soil for particular crops in farming. In residential and built-up areas, it is done to see if the earth contains any harmful contaminants. Urban soils often have high levels of hydrocarbons, lead, and other heavy metals, which can pose serious health risks, especially to children who are prone to ingesting soil while playing in the outdoors.

Site Investigation & Assessment

The first step in determining the type and extent of soil contamination is site investigation & assessment. The purpose of the study is to determine whether a soil and groundwater investigation followed by remediation is necessary or not. The assessment is done in the following three phases.

Monitoring Wells Installation

Monitoring Wells Installation

Monitoring wells are designed to monitor groundwater to evaluate the changes in the physical, chemical and biological properties of water. To be effective, monitoring wells installation should be done in such a way that the properties of the groundwater samples are not affected. The well should be designed so that groundwater sampling, measurement of groundwater elevation and hydraulic conductivity testing can be easily done.

Hydraulic Lift Removal

Hydraulic Lift Removal

Hydraulic lifts are pressurized vessels that contain hydraulic oils. When the lift starts leaking oil on the subsurface soil due to corrosion and other causes, they become potentially hazardous for human health and the environment. Removing below ground hydraulic lifts is usually a complicated process owing to their size and construction.
