Characterization of contaminated groundwater requires detailed monitoring to eliminate data gaps, improve predictive numerical models, and track remedial efforts. The Westbay System is a reliable, cost-effective technology for obtaining detailed information, enabling groundwater professionals to carry out comprehensive and defensible contaminant site investigations and long-term monitoring.
Subsurface investigations prior to reconnaissance and pre construction stages are often met with difficult site conditions particularly over rivers and water bodies. Due to site constraints, geo-technical methods are not suitable in such cases. Therefore
Sitelab's UVF-3100D is used to test soil to help investigate and clean up sites contaminated by above ground or underground storage tanks (USTs). Soils can be analyzed for extended diesel range organics (EDRO) or extractable petroleum hydrocarbons (EPH). Results correlate well to confirmatory lab methods.
As an archaeologist, you can use ImpulseRadar GPR for: Site investigation, assessment and virtual reconstruction. Artefact location and mapping, Grave location and mapping, Structure location and mapping,
Environmental engineers, consultants and geophysicists can use ImpulseRadar GPR for: Hazardous waste disposal and ground contamination studies. Ground water studies – water content / saltwater intrusion. Landfill delineation. Site investigations and assessment. Underground storage tank and drum investigations.
In the automotive field, borescopes used for remote visual inspection, make it possible to investigate a variety of problems without tearing apart the entire engine block. This allows you to inspect the internal components of the engine for carbon deposits, wear and tear, to pinpoint sources of unwanted noise, identify corrosion and confirm component failure. Routine quality control inspections at the production stage should also occur frequently. Sites include fuel injector nozzles, cast cylinder heads and...

Sitelab's laboratory performed a 4 day site investigation testing PAHs in sediment on the West Branch Grand Calumet River in Indiana. Test data was used to fingerprint and map the river bottom contaminated with heavy crude oil.
GPR and EM play an integral part by providing a non-intrusive means of examining the subsurface for environmental hazards such as soil contamination, underground storage tanks and drums. GPR can delineate landfills and pathways for contaminant flow, as well as conduct hydrogeologic investigations such as water table mapping. We offer innovative technology to support site assessment needs.
Niton analysers are versatile environmental testing instruments that provide valuable assistance in portable soil testing applications such as brownfield site investigation. With the ability to analyse a wide range of materials, our instruments provide lab-quality soil/sediment chemistry in seconds. Lead, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, and other toxic metals contaminate sites of former industrial and agricultural activity around the world. Whatever the reasons for these occurrences, these pollutants cannot be...
