Site Investigation/Risk Assessment

Once a property has been initially assessed and the presence of contamination is confirmed, supplemental stages of site investigation are generally needed in order to satisfy regulatory requirements for adequate site characterization. For each project we thoroughly assess the site-specific contamination by implementing sampling plans for soil, soil gas, and/or groundwater so that we fully understand the issues that need to be addressed for closure. Our sampling vehicles are fully equipped with the necessary equipment to collect a variety of field screening and site monitoring data during site investigation and remediation activities. The site’s contaminant conditions and regulatory requirements are evaluated in connection with the intended future use of the property to develop the most appropriate approach to closure.

Pioneer’s Phase II site investigation and engineering group, which is comprised of engineers, geologists, chemists and environmental scientists, conducts hundreds of soil and groundwater site investigations annually.

Pioneer uses proven risk assessment procedures to establish practical, yet protective, cleanup objectives for contaminated sites. Risk-based assessments are integral in the environmental industry to establish realistic remediation objectives. These assessments have allowed most types of properties with environmental contamination to be brought back into productive use.

Pioneer is built upon a competent and stable roster of key personnel that have combined experience of more than 75 years with the company. This consistency allows our clients to take advantage of this vast experience which results in clear and concise consultations developed and improved over time for any situation.
