Seeing Below is Believing

Everyone’s looking for technologies that save time and money. We have found that when it comes to delineating soil and groundwater contamination, laser-induced fluorescence and membrane interface probes do both—exceedingly well. Both tools save time by eliminating the need to wait for lab results to determine if further investigation is necessary, which allows important decisions to be made immediately.

Until recently, the only way to discover subsurface contamination was to take physical samples for lab analysis—but no longer. Now, sensors provide more and better information on a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOC) including chlorinated solvents and petroleum hydrocarbons. Additionally, this approach is faster and cheaper than traditional sampling. Brownfield projects, in particular, can benefit from what these technologies offer. Redevelopment initiatives frequently involve decisions…Log In to Read Full Article
