Modern Geosciences has extensive experience designing and implementing on-site Phase II site investigations to confirm, locate and identify recognized environmental conditions (RECs) or concerns.
The Phase I ESA standard represents the most common tool for environmental due diligence. However, no two sites are the same. While many firms offer this service, Modern Geosciences has a highly trained staff that is often called on for the most complex and challenging properties
Municipal setting designations (MSDs) are an institutional control to prevent the use of shallow groundwater within a targeted footprint. In doing so, several cleanup criteria can be adjusted to better reflect actual site conditions, often making site closure costs more manageable.
As with any data, context matters. We can help you determine where your actual risk and project costs are as well as what regulatory strategies will best work for the specific concerns at your site.
Modern Geosciences can help evaluate which institutional and engineering controls may be right for you project to prevent and minimize on-site environmental risks.
Without proper planning you can often find yourself inadvertently exposing construction staff to situations they are not trained for or worse, spreading contamination to other properties where you now become an additional responsible party. Working with properties requiring impacted soil and groundwater management requires thinking beyond the closure process to ensure long term liability is minimized.
As we encounter more and more data, it is important we develop the tools to effective use and share this information. Geodatabases serve as the basic collection tools to build GIS-referenced datasets. With this, you can generate relevant maps and databases for your project.
Lead is a common contaminant found in everything from paint to large-scale soil impacts resulting from historic smelter operations that can affect hundreds of acres.
Business environmental risk assessments characterize the nature and magnitude of risk to humans and ecology from chemical contaminants and other stressors, that may be present in the environment, so that the information can be used to determine how best to enact protections from those contaminants.
Modern Geosciences regularly coordinates the evaluation of asbestos-containing material at properties during the performance of our other services.
