Soil and Groundwater Quality Assessments

Elgin Associates has extensive experience in environmental site assessment, groundwater quality assessment, remediation and risk management for audit or due diligence purposes.

We untertake a structured approach when sampling and testing for groundwater quality:

Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments

Environmental Site Assessments to establish site history, site setting and identify contaminants of potential concern;

Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessments

  • Environmental Site Assessments to assess soil and groundwater quality across a site and to form a conceptual site model on extent of contamination, routes of exposure and potential receptors at risk.
  • Site remediation and validation, including removal of underground fuel tanks, validation of excavations and classification of contaminated soils for treatment or disposal.
  • Groundwater quality assessment and monitoring of the status and changes to contaminant plumes, including assessment of risk to groundwater users and receiving surface waters.
  • Preparation of Environmental Management Plans for site construction works and ongoing site operations.
  • Sediment quality assessments for Ports and Harbour works and assessing impacts from groundwater discharge zones, stormwater drainage and mine dewatering processes.
