Hudson County NJ Water and Soil Testing Services
Earlier this month, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a plan to clean up Burlington County, NJ townships. The plan will address soil and groundwater contamination in both Delran and Cinnaminson. But don’t sigh with relief because you don’t live in the area.
Unfortunately, Hudson County water and soil aren’t exempt from contamination either. This includes soil containing chromium, especially in towns near landfills. Contaminants like this can harm the health of residents living nearby.
The key to avoiding this is soil testing as well as groundwater testing. If you’re unsure what these are, read on to find out.
What is Soil Testing?
There are some instances when contaminants in soil are quite evident or obvious. There may be the presence of metal pipes, fragments or fibers in the soil, staining, or unusual odors. However, a lot of the time, contamination isn’t noticeable.
Soil testing can determine if contaminants are present. It involves taking samples of the soil and screening them for pollutants.
These tests can detect if there are dangerous contaminants. It can include lead, zinc, and mercury present, to name a few.

What is Groundwater Testing?
Groundwater supplies almost 30% of the drinking water in New Jersey. This makes it extremely important to ensure that it’s free from contaminants.
Groundwater testing looks at several characteristics of this type of water source. This includes the water’s chemical, physical, and biological makeup. It also involves taking samples and testing them.
This can determine if fluoride, chloride, sodium, or other elements are in the water. The test can also detect the presence of bacteria and measure the water’s hardness. Often traces of some of these signal the presence of harmful microorganisms that can affect your health.
Thankfully, All American Environmental also provides groundwater testing services. We can provide custom testing solutions for your site.
Soil and Groundwater Remediation
What happens if contaminants are present in your soil or groundwater? The next step would be soil and/or groundwater remediation.
Soil remediation involves the use of various procedures to remove the contaminants. Regardless of the pollutants, remediation aims to return the soil to as close to its purest form. This involves ensuring that it does not pose any risks to humans, animals, or plants.
Groundwater remediation is similar. This type of remediation aims to remove pollutants from the water. If this isn’t possible, they’re converted into harmless substances.
No need to worry because All American Environmental also provides site remediation services.
