Assessment and Remediation Resources

Assessment and/or remediation of soil and groundwater can be challenging and expensive.  On this page, we have two different “sets” of resources to help you with this challenge:

  • Understanding Groundwater Contamination (Webinar Series currently in process) and
  • Eight Keys to Successful Remediation (downloadable pdf documents).

Also, if you are considering a “second look” at your assessment/remediation efforts, you might want to consider our Peer Review Service

If you want more information or need assistance, contact Jeffrey Bolin at 248-932-0228, Ext. 125.

Along with our other resource pages, (PFAS Resources and Ag-Environmental Resources) this page is designed to help you better understand specific environmental issues and to help you monitor developments, with assessment and remediation of groundwater.

Understanding Groundwater Contamination Pre-Recorded Webinars

Poorly executed environmental site investigations can lead to failed remediation, incomplete environmental due diligence, and unnecessarily assuming environmental liability.

In this series of pre-recorded webinars (videos are shown in sequence below) we share, in some detail, what is necessary to understand groundwater contamination. You can view each of the webinars on this playlist we created on Dragun’s YouTube Page.

Session 1 Introduction

Session 2 Conceptual Site Models

Session 3 Interviews and Site Records

Session 4 Geology and Groundwater Basics

Session 5 Chemical Behavior in Groundwater

Session 6 Subsurface Investigation Basics

Session 7 High Resolution Environmental Investigation Tools

Session 8 Specialized Tools – Isotopes

Session 9 Introduction to Groundwater Modeling

Eight Keys to Successful Environmental Remediation

Soil and groundwater contamination issues can pose significant challenges: How pervasive is the issue? Who is responsible and how do you know? How do you remediate as quickly and as cost effectively as possible?  And of course, how do you prove your position should it come to litigation? Below we provide you with Eight Keys that are critical to answering these questions and turning significant challenges into success stories.

 

Dragun's 8 Keys to Environmental Remediation

These 8 keys are intended to help you understand “what it takes” to really understand subsurface conditions.

Environmental Minute #1:  “The Heart of the Soil and Groundwater Remediation Problem”

In our first Minute, we’ll tell you why so many remediation efforts will never work.

Environmental Minute #2:  Conceptual Site Models (I): “How do we decide Whether, How and Where to Remediate”?

In our second Minute, we’ll tell you why environmental remediation is NOT based on what is in the subsurface.

Environmental Minute #3: Conceptual Site Models (II): “Before You ‘Dig’ In, Dig into the Files”

In our third Minute, we discuss why “this” step can save you a lot of time and money and yet is often overlooked.

Environmental Minute #4: Conceptual Site Models (III): “Now Dig In – Basic Geology”

In the fourth Minute, we’ll tell you about the dangers of the proverbial “black box.”

Environmental Minute #6: Conceptual Site Models (V): “Getting Subsurface Data”

In this Minute, we focus on the physical collection of subsurface data (i.e. soil, groundwater, and chemistry data).

Environmental Minute #7: Groundwater Flow Evaluation

In this Minute, we look at the fundamentals of groundwater flow, including Darcy’s Law. We also provide a list of 10 potentially costly groundwater errors.

Environmental Minute #8: A Primer on Contaminant Transport

In this 8th and final Environmental Minute in this series, we look at the various factors that can affect how a contaminant moves in the subsurface.  You must understand how chemicals behave if you hope to have success in environmental remediation.

Environmental Minute #8.5: Environmental Remediation Considerations

In this follow up to our 8 previous Environmental Minutes, we look at some of the many environmental remediation considerations. These include remediation technology considerations, limiting factors, contractual considerations, and local & regional considerations.
