Remediation Case Study – Electric Resistance Heating (ERH)

Environmental remediation approaches can vary widely for different projects.  Based on several factors (potential contaminants, exposure pathways, lithology at the Site, neighboring properties, project stakeholder risk tolerances, timing goals, etc.), there are numerous remediation alternatives to explore.  Does the Site require active remediation such as excavation and off-Site disposal or [...]

Tungsten: Is It The Next Major Emerging Contaminant?

Tungsten (represented on the periodic table as “W”) is a naturally occurring element that exists in the environment as minerals with the two most common minerals being Wolframite and Scheelite. Due to tungsten's unique properties, such as its remarkable tensile strength, conductivity, and melting point, it can be found in [...]

The Confluence of Brownfields Remediation and Sustainability

August Mack has been involved with remediation projects since the start of the company in 1988.  Moreover, our founders, Geoff Glanders and Bryan Petriko (the company is named after their grandfathers), were involved in remediation since the early 1980s when State and Federal environmental laws and cleanup programs (e.g., underground [...]

Understanding Soil Management Plans

Cleaning up contaminated properties can take a long time and be a great expense. In most cases, conducting a completely “clean” cleanup is not always feasible and can be cost-prohibitive. As a result, risk-based closures are becoming more common, which means residual contamination remains behind and environmental restrictions are applied [...]

PFAS: What You Need To Know

Toxicological studies have shown that elevated exposure to PFAS can potentially result in liver, endocrine, immunological, and reproductive effects, as well as cancer. In the last three years, over a dozen states have issued guidance and/or screening levels for PFAS in groundwater and/or soils, and the U.S. EPA has developed [...]
