East Coast Environmental protects its clients from purchasing an environmental liability with quality ESAs. If remediation is proposed after an ESA, it is the seller’s responsibility to correct the issue prior to moving forward with the sale. Typical remediation solutions include:
Underground Storage Tank (UST) Removal
Both underground and aboveground petroleum storage tanks have been increasingly scrutinized as sources of environmental contamination by governmental agencies and the general public. ECE offers our clients a wide range of field operations and regulatory compliance services tailored to meet the needs of commercial storage tank owners.
ECE’s consultation services with clients ensure that goals and established deadlines for compliance with the UST regulation (2N) can be met in a timely manner.
Soil & Groundwater Remedial System Operation & Maintenance
Soil remediation is completed in one of two ways. Either soil can be excavated and hauled off and treaded at a permitted facility or it can be cleaned up in place through venting or the injection of compounds designed to break down the targeted contaminant in place. Groundwater can also be treated in place by pumping air or other compounds into the ground or it can be pumped out and treated in by a treatment system then discharged into a drainage feature.
Contaminant Fate & Groundwater Modeling
Contaminant fate and groundwater modeling includes the field collection of data regarding the groundwater contaminant plume such as groundwater flow direction and velocity, soil and groundwater contaminant concentration’s and contaminant and groundwater dispersivity characterizes. After the data has been compiled, then the applicable computer model is chosen and the field data entered so that an accurate estimate of the groundwater contaminant and concentrations over time can be determined.
Soil, Air, & Groundwater Monitoring
Soil, air and groundwater monitoring includes checking contaminant levels in these three mediums at specific monitoring points over time and distance from the source in order to determine whether contaminant levels are trending higher or lower over time. These measurements can also be modeled in order to provide estimates of maximum plume length and concentrations over time.
Keeping Costs Low For Our Clients
ECE maintains a low operating overhead which allows us to pass savings on to our clients. We retain highly qualified subcontractors to provide auxiliary services such as field drilling, UST and petroleum contaminated soil removal, and laboratory analysis as needed. All subcontractors meet regulatory requirements of government agencies and are fully insured.
