Helping you improve operations, protect assets and document environmental compliance
Knowledge is power. With it, you can make informed decisions to improve your operations, find ways to save money, be more environmentally conscious and protect your assets. Our Field Services team employs environmental scientists, biologists and engineers who are experts in all aspects of environmental studies, field measurements, sampling, instrument verification, data collection, data analysis and reporting. Our team can provide you with the information you need for regulatory compliance, discharge treatment options, asset protection and operational support.
The monitoring equipment at your facility must be maintained and kept in good working order to ensure it is producing accurate results. We can help by offering air quality testing, instrument and breathing air analysis, ambient air monitoring and any type of CEMS troubleshooting or maintenance assistance. We can assist your facility with Qualified Individual (QI or QSTI) Reference Method Testing for CEMS, mercury CEMS, opacity audits, and flow and temperature profiles. We also have a NASA-designed wind tunnel for doing S Type or 3D flow probe pitot coefficient testing.
There are various environmental regulations in place that can affect your project or facility. They include protecting wetlands and threatened and endangered species, sampling discharge water before returning it to the source, and monitoring the groundwater around your facility. We can provide the surveys, samples and tests you need to meet critical environmental demands.
Knowing the chemical composition of water in and around your facility, how it flows and the organisms within it is valuable to the operation of your facility and the protection of its assets. In some cases, it’s also required by regulatory agencies. We can provide you with sampling, water treatment studies, facility flow studies and biological studies so you can make better decisions regarding compliance issues. We can also produce customized reports from lab or engineering analysis data.
Interpretation and statistical analysis of large data bases can be another valuable tool in understanding and presenting your data. Our data and statistical analysis group offers software solutions, web pages, dashboards, mobile forms and tablet applications for numerous environmental compliance and laboratory requirements. We also offer support with hardware, networks, devices, system management, data back-up and disaster recovery.
