Geosyntec practitioners possess the environmental technology to conceptualize and implement all aspects of sediment assessment and remediation programs.
We specialize in the assessment and remediation of sites where sediments have been impacted by a wide range of contaminants, including metals, crude oil and refined petroleum compounds, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, pesticides, and polychlorinated biphenyls.
Our conservation, remediation, and restoration experience includes sites ranging from small, intermittent flow streams to large man-made and natural lakes, as well as complex river, estuary, and harbor systems. Our multidisciplinary approach brings together nationally recognized, in-house specialists in engineering, ecology and biological sciences, risk assessment and applied toxicology, and earth sciences to address the complex issues associated with contaminated sediment management.
Our practitioners specialize in site characterization, engineering design, and construction-related services for remedial actions and site development. This includes biological assessments and monitoring, risk assessments, and National Resource Damage Assessments. We also perform feasibility/ treatability studies and provide permitting and regulatory support to clients.
Geosyntec 's innovative methods and strategies account for project success in streamlining removals to position properties for redevelopment; minimizing long-term cost exposure through alternative remedies; assessing actual risk levels, and designing facilities for operational cost savings.
In the case of large fire events, we also provide an emergency characterization of post-fire burn debris to evaluate potential impacts to human health and the environment. We conduct aerial and ground-based assessments of the potential for erosion and sedimentation hazards resulting from the fire, then collect and analyze burn debris samples.
As we survey each sampling location in the post-fire debris zone, we enter pertinent data in the field for rapid download and interpretation in a project database. Our reports then interpret and summarize our analytical results and their significance in terms of the potential hazards posed by the residual hazardous constituents detected in the burn debris.
