Services include site investigation, feasibility studies, development and implementation of remedial action plans, evaluation of treatment options, value engineering as part of a third party review of another firm's work, assessment and mitigation of subsurface vapor intrusion pathways, and site closure.

Our specialized MGP site expertise demonstrates our capability to quickly deploy teams to assist clients with:

  • Site Characterization
  • Over 30 seasoned MGP practitioners
  • Remedial Investigation and Design
  • Construction Services
  • Risk Assessment
  • Brownfield Redevelopment
  • Sediment Remediation

  • Community Relations

Innovative Technologies for MGP Sites

Geosyntec defines the state of the practice in many fields because of our strong academic >and research interests. One example of our innovative technological approaches is STAR: (Self-sustaining Treatment for Active Remediation). STAR is an innovative technology to remediate Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs) which uses smoldering combustion to quickly and efficiently destroy contaminants. Another example is our Corrective Action Plan (CAP) for site and stream remediation and reduction of hydrocarbons using an air sparging fence in a fractured bedrock aquifer.
