Site Remediation & Hazardous Waste Management
If site conditions of concern are discovered in the regulatory records review or by the investigator conducting a Phase I ESA, a Phase II investigation may be required to fully define the scope of the discovery.
Nutshell has forged partnerships with several local MDE certified tank installer/removers, geologists, geoprobe owner/operators, Maryland licensed well drillers and industrial hygienists to assist in conducting Phase II investigations, designed and supervised by Nutshell.
This business model is cost-effective and allows Nutshell to choose the most qualified project-specific local technicians.
Nutshell expertly plans each Phase II investigation to employ a minimum of invasive exploration and sampling necessary to produce the required description of site conditions. A detailed, concise report of discovery is prepared and presented to the client.
If appropriate and if requested by the client, a corrective action plan is prepared and presented to the client.
Soil & Groundwater Investigation Associated With Documented Motor Fuel Releases & Conditions Consistent With a Potential Release
Sub-slab soil & groundwater sampling in motor vehicle repair shops where oil/water separators or abandoned hydraulic lifts are present, or where hazardous material and/or petroleum products are stored, or poor housekeeping practices are evident.
Sub-slab soil & soil gas sampling in buildings where contaminated soil or groundwater is documented on the subject property or on contiguous properties.
Examples of properties where this investigation may be warranted are:
Interior and exterior air quality sampling on properties where contamination is present in the soil or groundwater, or where hazardous substances are stored or used, under circumstances that present a potential for vapor encroachment or impact to the ambient air.
In some cases, the property owner or other parties involved in a real estate transaction will opt to address the site contamination by conducting a site remediation project, such as the following:
