Several industries and industrial processes may contribute to soil and groundwater contamination. AdEdge Technologies has supplied filtration equipment for several remediation efforts to remove arsenic, lead, and other inorganic contaminants to meet state and federal mandates.
Problem: Soil particles are susceptible to being detached and carried away with concentrated runoff streams, forming rills and gullies that grow with time. The slope integrity is diminished, eroding the slope face and becoming a larger environmental and safety issue. Slopes steeper than the natural angle of repose for the slope materials require additional protection measures, as are slopes subject to more severe hydraulic stresses.
In archaeology using GPR you can process considerable areas of planned excavations. Therefore, the needed excavation area can be substantially reduced. Time and financial costs reduce as well. Examining historical buildings GPRs allow to find hidden rooms, spot areas of demolition in the object structure. What is remarkable, you can make a noncontact research with GPR (e.g. above ground surface).
Horizontal wells are a proven and effective remedial technology for site cleanup. For environmental applications, horizontal wells offer several advantages in comparison to traditional vertical wells.
The first horizontal wells were installed using a mid-sized directional drill rig in 1993 by Directional Technologies, Inc. The three (3) horizontal Soil Vapor Extraction wells installed at John F. Kennedy International Airport was the beginning of a new industry. Directional Technologies, Inc. founders transferred...
Epcon is known in the industry for the Soil Remediation Oxidizer, including Hazardous and Toxic Spills. Epcon Thermal OxidizerSystems, which operate in a very safe manner, clean up the toxic chemicals from the ground. We pre-test and pre-assemble the majority of systems in our 150,000 Sq. Ft. modern shop.
Vacuum excavation is fast becoming a best practice in the field of construction and site excavation. Why? Because it uses jets of air (air excavation) or water (hydro excavation) to loosen soil, instead of a heavy metal claw. After loosening, the soil is pulled out of the ground through an air vacuum hose to a debris tank for later disposal or back-filling. Using non-destructive technology can quickly, safely and economically excavate in areas inaccessible to conventional digging equipment like backhoes and...
Problem: Nitrate, the most stable form of nitrogen in water, is found in both ground and surface water and originates from both natural and anthropogenic sources. Due to its high solubility in water, nitrate is not filtered out from groundwater like other contaminants. Removing nitrates from source water is important as elevated levels in drinking water can cause serious health effects when ingested.
