Site Characterization Innovation

AllenES is actively working on a number of challenging remediation sites across the southeast. We are using a variety of real-time, non-invasive technologies to assist in resolving the subsurface hydrogeochemical setting including 1) mapping the 3D-extent of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL), 2) mapping the geologic conditions including permeable sand and gravel channels that offer preferential horizontal as well as vertical migration pathways, 3) quantifying target organic chemicals in soil, groundwater and soil gas phases and 4) identifying buried waste and tanks in the subsurface. Technologies that we are actively applying include electrical resistivity imaging/tomography, hand-held Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), electromagnetic induction tooling, downhole direct imaging Membrane Interface Probe/Optical Image Profiler (MIP/OIP) and Hydraulic Profiling tool (HPT), and hydrophobic diazo dyes. Deploying these field technologies and techniques are providing real-time data to address uncertainty in the subsurface at a much higher resolution and confidence.

AllenES is committed to applying innovative technologies and approaches to meeting our clients’ objectives in a timely, cost effective and robust manner.
