Environmental Site Characterization, Phase II
Phase II confirms or refutes the potential presence of contamination revealed during phase I. If there is indeed contamination of the site, the affected area will be delimited.
Avizo Consulting’s environmental site assessment specialists will analyze the results of previous studies, if any.
Then soil surveys will be carried out either by drilling or by exploratory trenching, if necessary observation wells will be built at depths ranging from 2.5 to 6 m.
The soil quality criteria will be established according to the use of the site.
Soil, surface water and groundwater samples will likely be collected. They will be analyzed by a laboratory accredited by the MELCC.
The hydrogeological conditions of the site (hydraulic gradient, structure, density, soil moisture, etc.) that impact the rate of migration of contaminants will also be determined.
A technical report delimiting the affected areas will be given to you.
