We perform site assessments to determine whether environmental contamination has occurred.
Have you ever seen wildlife rescue workers cleaning animals that have been affected by oil spills? If so, you have seen an example of environmental contamination. Oil certainly isn’t the only contaminant that can affect the environment. In fact, environmental contamination refers to any type of physical, radiological, biological, or chemical substance that enters the environment. In some cases, humans cause the contaminants to enter the environment, but not always. Certain contaminants are particularly hard to break down or remove, such as those manufactured for industrial use or other purposes.
If you’re preparing a plot of land for development or construction, it’s important to know that it’s ready for the next steps. Many different issues can cause contamination, and some of those issues aren’t immediately evident simply by inspecting the property. At Coastal Air Assessments, we perform site assessments to determine whether environmental contamination has occurred. We work with clients located in and near West Palm Beach, Florida, helping to provide the peace of mind needed to move forward with a construction or development project.
All of our environmental contamination assessments are performed under the standards of ATSM E1527-13. Our experienced and trained technicians examine and interpret data taken from a property. We’re looking for signs of contaminants and the harm they may have caused on the environment. If we find that certain substances are present, we can also suggest remedial action.
