Groundwater Remedies

The Revitalization of Geology

For some, wondering what lies beneath our feet might come as a passing thought — but for those responsible for groundwater remediation, understanding the layout of the subsurface is critical to successful remediation.

In the past, the development of subsurface conceptual site models relied on drilling wells to determine the extent of groundwater contamination, costing valuable time and money. Today, geology — more specifically an application called Environmental Sequence Stratigraphy (ESS) — is experiencing something of a renaissance in environmental consulting, offering remediation practitioners a more accurate way to determine the nature and extent of contamination, which benefits clients and the environment.
