Beginning with the end in mind seems like a simple part of a sound process, but we have found that it makes all the difference. GeoInsight can design a customized evaluation program for your property to provide you with an objective basis with which to make critical decisions regarding the future of the parcel. We approach each investigation project with a fresh perspective to address the unique combination of regulations, risks, receptors, and physical setting that will come into play. Before beginning your site investigation, we evaluate how we will use the information obtained during field activities.
This tactical strategy provides us with a firm basis for identifying project data quality requirements. Time invested in up front planning allows us to develop appropriate and cost-effective sampling strategies, ensuring that we get the most comprehensive data needed to achieve your project objectives the first time.
We rigorously research historic and current property uses to understand how environmental media including soil, ground water, drinking water, surface water, sediments, and air may have been affected. We use site sampling data to identify and evaluate the magnitude and extent of potential environmental impacts associated with releases of oil and/or hazardous material to the environment. Site investigations can be performed to define known releases, or evaluate the potential for a release, whether from current or historical sources.
Information obtained during site investigation activities is often used to develop a conceptual site model (CSM). A CSM includes:
Whether we are conducting a baseline assessment for screening purposes, or performing a rigorous investigation to satisfy a regulatory objective, our well-developed interpretive skills manage sources of uncertainty and help you evaluate your options to meet your project objectives.
When you bring GeoInsight on as a member of your investigation team, you benefit from our familiarity with a wide range of investigative methods and tools suitable for varying levels of site condition complexity and project objectives.
