Evaluating the GSI Pathway

June 16, 2022

When a contaminated site is located near a surface water body, there is a risk of contaminants in groundwater migrating into a lake or stream. If this is a potential route of conveyance, the Groundwater Surface Water Interface (GSI) pathway is taken into consideration during an exposure pathway evaluation. Since contaminant concentrations in groundwater do

When Should the Incremental Sampling Method be Used?

June 8, 2022

Common practice for soil sampling is to collect a discrete sample (soil from a known location and depth) from a few points and compare the analytical data to exposure criteria. In particular situations, discrete sampling is biased and not reproducible. For instance, if a soil sample is analyzed for arsenic and the aliquot of soil

A Records Search with Risk Assessment (RSRA), sometimes called a Desktop Review, is one of several products that Envirologic offers to help our clients meet their specific environmental due diligence needs.

What is an Environmental Transaction Screen?

May 10, 2022

An Environmental Transaction Screen may be utilized to meet due diligence needs in certain instances in place of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) or a Records Search with Risk Assessment (RSRA). A Transaction Screen is a more thorough environmental evaluation than a RSRA; however, similar to a RSRA, a Transaction Screen is not

Redeveloping Vacant Gas Stations

May 2, 2022

Gas stations were once an important fixture of major intersections, thoroughfares, and rural communities across the United States. Over the past few decades, however, the number of stations has steadily been declining, in part because of decreasing gasoline profit margins and stricter environmental regulations. There was also a need historically for more gas stations as
