A primary component toward successful remediation of contaminated sites is a full understanding of the hydrogeologic setting
WET staff has significant knowledge and in-depth project experience characterizing site geology and hydrogeology that influence the movement of groundwater and chemical constituents. Accurate site characterization is vital to fully define extent and degree of contamination, and establish transport mechanisms and pathways for simple or complex geologic settings. WETs hydrogeologists perform hydrogeologic assessments, oversee installation of monitoring and test wells, sample soil and groundwater, conduct aquifer tests, and conduct computer modelling. Analysis and understanding of data collected at remedial sites allows for proper application of remedial technologies. Specific groundwater remediation project experience includes:
• monitored natural attenuation
• In-Situ treatment
• pump and treat
• interceptor trenches, and
• hydraulic containment barriers.
Ultimately our expertise and knowledge allows us to accurately determine and design alternatives based on the hydrogeologic setting and client’s needs to either control or remove risks. Our project and client base includes work for private and commercial industry, municipal and county government, and regulatory agencies.
