Site Investigation and Characterization

Our experienced staff develop cost-effective investigation approaches related to a  wide  range of environmental concerns  and  are  experienced  in conducting site investigations of varying complexity including: advancing soil borings; installing groundwater monitoring wells, geophysical investigations for lithologic correlation and for identification of man-made or natural subsurface features, extraction and injection wells; GW tracer studies, collecting surface and subsurface soil and water samples for assessment purposes; installing and sampling soil vapor probes for vapor intrusion potential; and performing exploratory excavations. We are experienced in collecting a wide range of media samples including: soil, sediment and rock; surface and groundwater; soil vapor; indoor air and air (associated with earth moving activities} to assess the risk to public health and the environment, and to determine if any mitigation measures are required to reduce or eliminate the impact.

Our approach to soil, soil gas, and groundwater investigations is simple. First, we must fully understand the project and problem statement, including site background and history, as well as research and evaluate any previous investigations performed on the subject property, if applicable. By accomplishing this, Stratus can apply cost- effective and innovative approaches to streamline the investigative process and reduce or eliminate rework.

However, prior to the commencement of fieldwork, Stratus works with site owners and the regulatory agencies, if appropriate, to develop a comprehensive investigative work plan. Stratus will design and focus the investigative work plan to complete the investigation in a single phase, reducing overall project costs and accelerating the site characterization schedule.

Stratus will evaluate each project on a case-by-case basis to determine the sample collection strategy and approach as well as the analytical testing methodology.
