Contaminated soil and other media must be managed carefully. SCS has extensive experience in the characterization of contaminated soils, which we can perform “in-situ” in order to allow direct loading of the soil during excavation or “on-the-fly” when the unexpected is encountered. We self-perform both the characterization and the excavation.
SCS offers a well-trained staff of field engineers and technicians who serve as resident engineers or owner’s representatives, soil and geosynthetics technicians, and well inspectors. Our experience encompasses construction projects of all sizes, including low hydraulic conductivity soil liner and cover systems, granular drainage media, many types of geomembrane liners, geocomposite drainage products, geosynthetic clay liners, general earthwork, concrete, and mechanical and electrical systems.
In some cases, SCS Engineers can provide on-site treatment of contaminated soils to reduce the cost of off-site disposal or to preclude the need to remove contaminated soils at all. Examples include stabilization and fixation, enhanced biodegradation and land farming, and soil vapor extraction.
SCS offers the following remediation services:
