Site Characterization, Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Studies

spillSJR can assist clientele in site characterization, to determine potential contamination.  This includes investigating the type, concentration, and extent of the contamination, as well as studying the feasibility and cost of alternative remedial measures.  SJR staff can provide cost-effective approaches and detailed evaluations of various remedial options.  This allows clients to choose the best approach for their business needs.

SJR is qualified to provide remedial recommendations on asbestos containing materials (ACM), lead-based paint (LBP), mold, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contamination, soil contamination and other pertinent areas related to industrial hygiene.

Site Characterization – This is a preliminary process to determine the potential contamination of a site.  Typically, a site investigation/facility characterization includes evaluating media and structure to access the extent of contamination.  During an investigation, SJR collects samples from the site, submits them to a laboratory for analyses, and interprets the laboratory data in order to make recommendations for remediation and clean-up.

Remedial Investigations – Should contaminants be discovered on-site, SJR consults will perform a remedial investigation to determine the nature, extent, and environmental/health impacts of the contamination.  This typically involves more detailed and comprehensive examination of the site, further characterization of contaminants, and documentation of the investigation.

Feasibility Study – Using information developed in the remedial investigation, SJR scientists can draft a feasibility study.  This study involves the identification and evaluation of alternative remedial technologies, as well as detailed cost analyses regarding remedial alternatives.  Feasibility studies also involve the development of a preliminary remedial design.  SJR can also perform on-site testing, as needed, to assist in the preliminary design and cost estimation of these remedial approaches.

Remediation – SJR performs the technical oversight and documentation for on-site remedial projects.  Staff technicians provide consulting services for remediation projects.  SJR also conducts periodic sampling of contaminants, in order to monitor the remediation process and offer further assistance to clientele.
