Aqua-Tech offers a variety of science-based consulting services to business and industry. These include environmental assessment services, facility planning and permitting services, contaminant release investigations, and environmental remediation. All these services are available on a flexible basis, depending on the client's needs, capabilities, and objectives...and can be provided on a task-by-task basis, or in a complete turnkey project, from initiation to completion.
Phase I and Phase II Environmental Assessments, along
with Baseline Environmental Assessments, are regularly required
to prevent acquiring a liability for problems caused by others,
or in pre-qualifying for financial support or insurance purposes.
Aqua-Tech is familiar with the ASTM, Michigan Association of
Environmental Professionals, and AGWSE standards for these
Aqua-Tech's personnel have been
involved in hydrogeological investigations related to air
quality, stormwater runoff, wetlands, water supply, wastewater
disposal, and solid waste disposal permitting in Michigan since
the inception of many of the permitting programs. We have also
worked successfully with clients to meet other local and national
permit requirements. These range from USEPA injection wells to
local Health Department isolation requirements.
Investigations of the soil and
groundwater are often necessary when release of a potential
contaminant is suspected. Aqua-Tech is familiar with and
comfortable with the wide range of tools available for these
investiga tions. These include on-site techniques and off-site
support services. Indirect, non-invasive techniques and minimally
invasive tech niques are used where possible and appropriate.
Direct sampling and measurement techniques are employed where
economical ly and scientifically necessary. Aqua-Tech's personnel
have been assisting clients in the determination and delineation
of environmental contamination since 1982.
are plenty of solutions to environmental contamination...many of
them more costly than the property they redeem. However, there
are also less costly and more practical solutions...solutions
which simply require a little more research and evaluation in
greater depth. Aqua-Tech has pioneered the use of above-ground
biological degradation techniques for fuel spills in Michigan. We
also pioneered the use of vacuum-driven composting for soil
remediation, and we encourage on-site contaminant destruction
wherever possible. Alternatively, there's little sense in
implementing these methods for very small spills...where a bit of
soil removal or a small activated carbon system can do the job at
less cost. At Aqua-Tech, our clients' goals are more important
than implementing the "technique of the week."
