Institutional and Engineering Controls

Modern Geosciences can help evaluate which institutional and engineering controls may be right for you project to prevent and minimize on-site environmental risks.

Establishing the right institutional and engineering controls can make or break a project.

Institutional controls are legal or administrative tools to prevent unacceptable exposures to contamination left in place at the completion of removal or remedial actions. Engineering controls are physical measures that are also designed to prevent or minimize exposure to hazardous substances remaining on-site. We’ve worked with a variety of regulatory entities on both the use of engineering and institutional controls that address specific concerns remaining on a property. This can include:

  • engineered caps
  • vapor mitigation barriers
  • exposure assumptions for modeling
  • reuse limitations
