Groundwater pollution (also called groundwater contamination) occurs when pollutants are released to the ground and make their way down into groundwater. It can also occur naturally due to the presence of a minor and unwanted constituent, contaminant or impurity in the groundwater, in which case it is more likely referred to as contamination rather than pollution.
underground storage tank (UST) closure
The city needed to close an underground storage tank (UST) that was no longer is use, ensuring that EPD’s UST Closure Guidance Report was properly followed and any contamination was properly delineated and disposed of.
Phase I and Phase ii environmental site assessment (EsA)
The facility was on the market to be sold and needed environmental assessments to inform potential buyers whether or not the site had any environmental issues. The assessments helped protect the buyer from incurring any unnecessary risk in the purchase of the property.
landfill groundwater Monitoring
The solid waste landfill was required by the EPD to conduct groundwater monitoring during regularly scheduled events to ascertain if contamination was leaving the subject property via the groundwater. The client needed to show that water contaminated by the landfill activities was not leaving the subject property.
