What regulated substance has impacted your site? To what extent, if any, has it impaired the property? Which is the best method for cleaning up the site, and how much will it cost?
It is Green Star Environmental’s business to answer these and many other questions that may arise when a property is adversely affected by a regulated substance. Green Star Environmental utilizes its engineering capabilities to design, implement, and manage cost-effective, turnkey remedial systems for a variety of remedial action operations. Our services range from traditional, temporary remedial measures to the design, installation, and operation of complex long-term treatment systems.
In order to evaluate the presence and extent of environmental contamination in soil and groundwater, Green Star Environmental regularly conducts environmental investigations (subsurface investigations) according to the regulations and guidance of the appropriate regulatory agency for the site. Whether the site warrants a simple Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (Phase II ESA), a complex Affected Property Assessment Report (APAR), or a Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study, Green Star Environmental has the know how to design an appropriate strategy. Typically, these investigations include:
- soil and groundwater characterization through the advancement and installation of soil borings,
- exploratory trenches, and
- temporary or permanent groundwater monitoring wells.
Common contaminants that Green Star Environmental has investigated and remediated at many sites include:
- phase separated hydrocarbons,
- petroleum hydrocarbons,
- chlorinated solvents, and
Green Star Environmental has obtained closures in Texas by working with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and other area municipalities through the following programs:
- TCEQ’s Texas Risk Reduction Program (TRRP),
- Innocent Owner/Operator Program (IOP),
- Municipal Setting Designations (MSD),
- Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP),
- Leaking Petroleum Storage Tank (LPST) Program, and
- Corrective Action Programs (CAP).
In addition, Green Star Environmental has conducted environmental investigations across the United States and obtained closure in states including Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Washington D.C.
Green Star Environmental personnel stay informed of the dynamic advances in remediation technology and recognize that an unbiased evaluation of the many available remediation technologies is essential to the development and selection of the appropriate solution to an environmental concern. Green Star Environmental’s extensive project experience in applying remediation technologies, combined with multi-disciplined engineering resources, allows us to consistently select the most cost-effective and technically sound solutions for our clients. Remedial alternatives may include soil excavation and off-site disposal, in-situ soil treatment, vapor extraction, or capping of contaminated soils. Groundwater cleanup may be accomplished through in situ treatment, various pump-and-treat systems, bioremediation, or other proven or emerging technologies.
