When potential process or operational concerns are warranted, Modern Geosciences in providing thorough and effective Process Inspections that identify key environmental changes, mitigate potential impact and drive strategic remediation solutions.
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
We understand that routine maintenance and monitoring is a constant concern for landfill operators. Routine landfill evaluations can help operators mitigate their environmental risks.
For larger projects where individual sampling of discrete points can lead to diminishing returns and exhaustive costs, Modern Geosciencs has worked with ways to represent large areas or volumes using incremental sampling design methods to ensure you understand site conditions. These efforts are often employed when real-time field decisions are needed to help keep a project schedule as short as possible.
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.
Cultural resource management involves inventorying sites, evaluating them, and sometimes mitigating the adverse effects of development projects and construction.
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.
