Series 40 – Extracting Toxic Vapors from Soils Under Structures
The mobile laboratory is a fixture in many site assessment programs.
Coupled with direct push sampling, mobile laboratories offer an efficient means to provide accurate real-time data that allows field personnel to adjust the scope of work during the assessment and therefore minimize the number of mobilizations needed to complete a site assessment.
Remediation is achieved through various technologies or combinations of technologies.
In the previous video we described the extraction of volatile compounds from groundwater, and we proceed now to a long-since-tested technology of removal of volatile organic compounds from soil under inhabited structures.
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.
Cost of Phase II Environmental Site Assessment can be substantial, we see stakeholders evaluating the benefit within the framework of the entire transaction.
