High Resolution Site Characterization Technologies
COLUMBIA Technologies performs high quality environmental site assessments and characterizations using advanced high-resolution site characterization (HRSC) tools and real-time techniques that can detect and map the full extent of subsurface contamination, track soil and groundwater changes and profile existing remediation systems. These include:
- Membrane Interface Probe with Electrical Conductivity (MIP/EC),
a multipurpose tool for mapping soil and groundwater contamination, specifically volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as halogenated solvents and petroleum compounds, and for measuring soil electrical conductivity (EC).
- Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF),
a Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (NAPL) mapping tool used to delineate the depth and lateral extent of free product and residual phase petroleum contamination.
- Hydraulic Profiling Tool (HPT),
provides direct pressure response measurements of hydraulic permeability and flow to determine migration pathways, remediation injection regions, and placements for groundwater monitoring wells.
- Membrane Interface Probe-Hydraulic Profiling Tool (MiHpt),
a combined MIP-HPT probe for mapping soil and groundwater contamination, specifically VOCs, along with measurements of soil EC and HPT injection pressure – all in the same push!
