Remedial Investigations

If the presence of contamination in excess of current regulatory standards has been identified on a property and further action appears warranted, GeoQuest will typically recommend that a "phase III" site assessment, or remedial investigation, be conducted. Remedial investigations usually consist of the direct sampling and analysis (and/or indirect assessment) of surface and subsurface materials (soil and water) to determine the degree and extent of any contamination present. This may be accomplished through a variety of direct sampling and/or remote sensing techniques, including:Bio Cleanup

  • Hollow-stem auger drilling
  • Geoprobe sampling
  • Test pitting
  • Well installation
  • Groundwater sampling
  • Magnetometer surveys
  • Ground penetrating radar
  • Conductivity surveys

Specific site conditions, as well as time- and cost-effectiveness, will determine the exact approach utilized.

Based on the findings, GeoQuest will make recommendations regarding what actions should be taken to mitigate (and/or eliminate) the problems identified. All recommendations for remedial strategies will be based on current or proposed site activities, subsurface conditions, and current environmental regulations.
