Soil & Groundwater Remediation

Commercial and industrial operations frequently contaminate the soil and groundwater on a site, resulting in a need to remediate the impacted media according to regulatory requirements. The best approach to remediation depends on many factors such as the extent of the contamination and types of contaminants involved. The type of soil that has been contaminated and the distance of contaminated soil to groundwater and other potential receptors are also important considerations for developing an effective remediation strategy. ARM Environmental Services has successfully completed many projects involving soil and groundwater remediation that have resulted in “No Further Action” letters for our clients.

Soil and Groundwater Solutions

Remedial procedures for soil and groundwater may range from simple in-situ bioremediation to complex systems for pumping and treating groundwater. Additional solutions for treating contaminated soil and groundwater include soil vapor extraction, air stripping, chemical oxidation, and soil vapor and groundwater recovery. The cost of these procedures must be carefully weighed against the potential liability they pose for the client.

Soil and groundwater remediation may be part of a larger project involving the investigation and remediation of contaminants or just due diligence before buying a property. These projects include voluntary cleanup contracts, whether or not the client is potentially responsible, in addition to soil management plans and site remediation plans.

ARM also works on remediation projects administered by state trust funds. These services often include negotiating with government regulators to determine the best course of action. ARM has extensive experience with this process, allowing projects to be completed on time and within budget.
