Laurel Environmental is a Full-service Environmental Consulting Firm

Laurel Environmental Associates, Ltd. is a full-service consulting firm with expertise in all facets of environmental investigating, testing and remediation. Our hallmark is providing accurate and cost-effective results tailored to the needs of our clients, using the most advanced technology available.

Our Services Include:

  • Phase I Site Assessments are provided to a variety of clients, including financial institutions, building owners and purchasers.

An Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is an investigation designed to determine whether environmental degradation has occurred on a property, and the likelihood of hidden liabilities for purchasers, owners, operators, insurance and financial institutions. The need for the ESA stems from the all appropriate inquiry set forth in Section 9601 (35) (b) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).

A site history review is comprised of a detailed background search to identify current and historical uses of a Building or Subject Property in question.  The historical use of a building can reveal potential environmental risks to the site in question and/or surrounding properties.  

To account for these situations, Laurel Environmental Associates review numerous federal, state, and local databases for on-site environmental release listings as well listingsup to a one-mile radius of the Subject Property.

The site-specific environmental study portion of the ESA is an on-site investigation where Laurel Environmental Associates travel to the Subject Property to conduct an Environmental Assessment of the Property. 

The report includes pertinent information regarding the Subject Property and related on-site operations, as well as identifying current and historical environmental impacts of surrounding properties, up to a one-mile radius. 

If contamination is discovered, LAUREL can design and optimize an economical mitigation plan that is environmentally sound.  In some cases, early implementation of a proactive remedial strategy will permit a property transaction to move forward while a clean-up is in progress.

When there is suspicion of contaminated soil or contaminated groundwater at a site, sampling and analysis must be completed to confirm the presence or absence of the suspected contaminants.  This is achieved through the installation of groundwater monitoring wells and sampling of soil from cores.

The validity of the results obtained through this sampling relies heavily on the proper placement of monitoring wells and soil borings, though the placement is largely subjective.  It is therefore important for a highly skilled scientist to conduct research on site history and visual reconnaissance in formulating a plan, and final decision of proper placement of the monitoring wells and borings to obtain relevant samples.


Whenever possible, LAUREL makes every effort to limit costs, damage to property and especially disruption of business, through the use of the latest state of the art drilling and sampling equipment available.

 DATA COLLECTION

Choosing the correct sampling media and methods are just as important as proper well installations and sampling location decisions.  Utilizing the correct sampling equipment and decontamination techniques, LAUREL ensures that no cross contamination has occurred. Without exception, only properly trained and certified staff collect samples.

When there is suspicion of contaminated soil or contaminated groundwater at a site, sampling and analysis must be completed to confirm the presence or absence of the suspected contaminants.  This is achieved through the installation of groundwater monitoring wells and sampling of soil from cores.

Groundwater depths and product thicknesses are determined using an oil/water interface probe.  Wells are developed using a bladder pump, to a turbidity (a measure of the silt present in water) of 50 nephelometric units (NTU's), or less to ensure proper hydraulic connection with the surrounding aquifer.

The quality of drinking water is of utmost importance for any family or business.  LAUREL's experienced team can collect samples and analyze drinking water to ensure safe drinking water is present.

 LAUREL has observed that septic systems, and industrial storm water leaching pools are often receptors of contamination at any given property.  By design, these systems leach as much water as possible into the ground. LAUREL will sample the sediments in the bottom of these structures and determine the severity of contaminants or lack thereof.

LAUREL conducts geophysical surveys to aid in the discovery of underground storage tanks, buried drums, fill material, unexposed drywells, and large scale subsurface hydrocarbon contamination with no excavation or drilling necessary.
