Once you know the history of your site and have conducted an orientation, or ‘first step’ study, it might be essential to study any pollution on your site in more detail. A more in-depth investigation – a characterization or delineation study – might be needed. This study looks at your soil and groundwater and provides the information you need to develop the right clean-up strategy for your site. A characterization or delineation study can include several study phases in order to provide contamination characterization details. Our investigations continue until the full extent of the contamination is known. This can mean installing piezometers and taking soil and groundwater samples. Alternative techniques are also provided as suitable to your site. The characterization study can also extend to more elaborate investigations such as deep borings in soil and drilling in bed-rock, permeability and tracability tests, soil granulometric tests and trials to determine the direction and speed of groundwater flow. Call us today – our top quality characterization study will guarantee that you have an accurate assessment of your site pollution and the most cost-effective and efficient solutions for remediation.
