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.
As industrial operations become more common within urban settings, leak detection and repair (LDAR) approaches need to be updated to account for increased public and regulatory scrutiny. Modern Geosciences is a leading innovator in the LDAR community and can help you find and address issues before larger concerns occur.
We understand that routine maintenance and monitoring is a constant concern for landfill operators. Routine landfill evaluations can help operators mitigate their environmental risks.
Modern Geosciences can help evaluate which institutional and engineering controls may be right for you project to prevent and minimize on-site 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.
We’re often called upon to support legal clients who need to confirm industry practices and procedures were carried out or whether the other side’s depiction of events stands up to scrutiny.
Attorneys often call on us for our professional litigation support and expert witness services to help judges and juries clearly understand the scientific data that often accompanies environmental cases.
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.
