Series 35 – Phase II Environmental Site Assessment; Tracing the Environmental Risk (Part 3)
This is the thirty-fifth in a series of light, short and visual talks on taking control of environmental-risk concerns that haunt otherwise lucrative transactions in commercial and industrial properties, and even residences.
The goal of Phase II is to provide a statement on whether or not the property is impacted with contamination that may require cleanup or abatement.
In the previous two videos we presented technologies that penetrate and sample soils and groundwater.
And then, there’s vapors that permeate subsurface soils. Contaminants like gasoline and chlorinated solvents are volatile, travel as vapor and can reach long distances from their points of origin and enter inhabited spaces. We call this problem, Vapor Intrusion.
Presenting a well-tested technology of remediation of volatile organic compounds from groundwater.
Remediation is not an absolute term. In the environmental-risk lingo it means the reduction of the intensity of the contamination to such levels that will be accepted by the regulatory authorities.
Time and money are connected and it behooves us to outline time schedules when engaged in the Phase I and II environmental site assessments.
