Over the last few years, CONSULTECH's experience has shown that environmental regulatory agencies have focused their concerns on contamination source clean up and risk-based corrective action for contaminants which have migrated beyond the more heavily contaminated source area. We are apprised of the latest corrective action policies of the U.S. EPA and state environmental protection agencies, as well as the latest proven remedial technologies.
CONSULTECH designs and implements innovative, cost-effective solutions when contaminant concentrations in soil, surface water, or groundwater exceed site-specific or regulatory action levels. Working closely with our clients, we outline the parameters of concerns and develop effective clean-up solutions which suit the client's budgetary requirements and time constraints.
Our approach to Remediation Design and Implementation includes:
CONSULTECH provides engineering capabilities for custom remedial systems design and manufacturing, including:
Areas of expertise include: mechanical, electrical, chemical, and process control engineering with full computer-aided drafting support. Field engineers, project supervisors, and technicians direct the installation and start-up of remedial systems.
Our engineering team has specific experience in remedial system designs that meet or exceed the regulatory requirements imposed on hazardous waste sites which are subject to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. CONSULTECH will custom design bench-scale investigations, field treatability studies, and/or pilot plant operations to ensure the selected remedial technology is appropriate for site-specific compounds and conditions.
CONSULTECH installs, operates, and maintains all types of remedial systems. These include both custom-designed systems, as well as most major manufacturers' remediation equipment systems. Our trained technicians are experienced in operating and maintaining compressors, pumps, air handlers, and electrical process controls. We are actively operating and maintaining pump-and-treat, product skimmer, air sparge, vacuum extraction, carbon absorption, and incinerator systems throughout the Southeastern United States.
In addition, our company offers a unique ITD program (Interactive Telemetry and Data Management System) which enables us to remotely monitor sites and distribute critical information to those who need it most. This helps our clients significantly reduce their operation and maintenance costs.
CONSULTECH offers its clients a means by which they can evaluate their facility's process waste stream(s) and determine potential options for reducing and recycling waste(s). In recent years, in addition to stricter regulations and the rising costs/liabilities associated with waste disposal, economic incentives have been offered to encourage waste minimization programs. Our engineers identify facility processes where the implementation of waste minimization would be both technologically feasible and economically justifiable. We will prepare a waste minimization assessment procedure tailored for each client's operation and provide assistance in evaluating the effectiveness of implementing waste minimization techniques designed by CONSULTECH or others.
CONSULTECH provides both two- and three-dimensional modeling to determine the fate and transport of contaminants released into the soil, groundwater, or rock. We evaluate site- and contaminant-specific characteristics such as groundwater velocities, soil permeability, and chemical solubility to graphically predict contaminant migration and degradation over time. This helps to evaluate the potential impact to human health and the environment and is the foundation for cost-savings, risk-based corrective action (RBCA).
To comply with Federal regulations for UST management, many USTs will require permanent closure. Most of these USTs will need to be removed or closed in place. From regulatory compliance to UST removal/closure, CONSULTECH has vast experience and provides all the services required for UST management. Our professional staff employs many effective innovative technologies. Our services include:
CONSULTECH provides the following services to assure clients' compliance with all applicable permits and regulations:
CONSULTECH offers clients a wide range of services to ensure proper operations, maintenance, and removal of USTs:
