Phase II
Phase II projects generally consist of collecting shallow soil and/or groundwater samples which are screened for contaminants in order to determine if there is a severe environmental problem at a property. AARC has put together a scope of work which will minimize your costs but still provide enough data to make a realistic evaluation of the property and the transaction.
AARC determines environmental characterization through the use of soil and groundwater testing plus a thorough review of the historical use of the property. Using this approach enables us to design a program based on the most probable site conditions while identifying all reasonable deviations from those conditions and prepare contingency plans to deal with them.
Our project sites range from those that require limited soil and ground water sampling to large-scale projects involving extensive analysis of multimedia waste streams.
As part of the phased approach, we use both conventional and innovative investigative technologies. These technologies include:
  • Rota sonic drilling technologies
  • Conventional hollow stem auger drilling methods
  • Geoprobe soil vapor, soil and ground water sampling
  • Computer modeling of ground water flow
  • Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
