Subsurface soil and groundwater investigations are a mainstay of KEM’s business. We evaluate and resolve releases from underground storage tank systems and spills and those from varied industrial operations. KEM has also been, the lead consultant on numerous Superfund and Brownfield sites and has performed remediation of subsurface conditions using both conventional and innovative technologies.
KEM’s personnel include registered professional engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, an attorney with almost twenty years experience working with the EPA, state-certified subsurface evaluators, risk assessors and others. Our personnel understand the practices and procedures associated with the installation of soil borings and geoprobe assessments, groundwater monitoring wells, and product and groundwater recovery wells.
We have delineated, mapped, and evaluated the extent of subsurface contamination. We have modeled groundwater, aquifer response, contaminant transport, and natural attenuation, and developed viable means for the remediation of contamination consistent with the latest regulatory requirements. Our subsurface soil and groundwater services have been utilized on properties contaminated with DNAPLs, LNAPLs, PCBs, petroleum products, solvents, metals and other contaminants. This is one of the many areas in which we have provided law firms and other clients with expert opinions and witness testimony.
