Trusted Risk Assessment:
Success has been realized on a large scale
by minimizing or eliminating contaminated soil volumes by utilizing Risk Assessment based remedial approaches. These approaches either independently or in concurrence with in-situ or ex-situ remedial technologies have significantly reduced safety risk, carbon foot print, client liability and total project cost.
What is Risk Assessment?
Risk assessment is the method used for predicting whether a risk of adverse effects on the environment exists based on the exposure to a chemical substance. It involves professional judgment and sound scientific rationale.
Risk is the chance that a receptor will experience a negative health effect when exposed to a hazard. A hazard is a source/substance that causes negative health effects on a human or ecological receptor.
Factors that contribute to the risk level of a site include:
When is it used?
Risk Assessment is used at complex sites where the assumptions used for Tier 1 guidelines or Tier 2 guideline modification or development do not apply. The purpose of a risk assessment is to produce a realistic, defensible, and representative estimate of risks to both human and ecological receptors that are present at a site.
Risk Assessment Options and Saving You Money
Risk assessment options can provide substantial cost savings to remediation projects by reducing the soil volumes that need to be removed. The application of risk assessment options allows Ridgeline to provide innovative value added solutions to our clients.
Soil and Groundwater Remediation:
Ridgeline offers a wide variety of Environmental Site Assessments associated with the Environmental Industry. Each type of assessment targets a specific inquiry and may be implemented separately or in combination, to satisfy each specific Site Assessment.
Soil and Groundwater Remediation and Risk Assessment:
We can efficiently help your company navigate through your Environmental Requirements.
A Phase I ESA identifies actual or potential sources of well site contamination. To prepare your report, Ridgeline will analyze data collected through file reviews, site visits, andinterviews with landowners, leaseholders, site operators and other stakeholders.
A Phase II ESA confirms the presence and types of impact on your property. Assessments involve analysis of past site activities and soil sampling at predetermined locations and depths. We may also use electromagnetic (EM) technology to quickly identify areas of potential concern.
If your Phase II ESA indicates contamination levels above Regulatory criteria, a Phase III ESA Wellsite Remediation program is required. Ridgeline’s Environmental professionals will provide a Remediation Action Plan which delivers site specific remediation options and explores all Risk Assessment opportunities available as part of the Remediation Strategy which may lead to the remediation certification process.
