Environmental Assessments, Investigations & Remediation

LSRP: The New Jersey Site Remediation and Reform Act (SRRA) requires that the remediation of sites be conducted under the oversight of a New Jersey Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP). EEC LSRPs have diverse experience in different phases of the remediation process and as a whole can assist clients in meeting their remediation responsibilities in New Jersey. A Response Action Outcome (RAO) is issued by the LSRP once the site has been remediated pursuant to all applicable statutes, rules and guidelines.

Environmental Site Assessment: The purpose of the preliminary assessment is to identify areas of concern (AOC) and determine which AOCs require further investigation. EEC considers Preliminary Site Assessments to be the most important part of the remediation process. This is performed by senior professionals with years of experience so that the entire process is on a solid foundation. Depending upon the client needs, EEC performs the following assessments:

  • Phase 1 Environmental Assessments using ASTM Standard E-1527 and EPA All Appropriate Inquiries (AAI) rule.
  • Preliminary Assessments (PA) in accordance with New Jersey Technical Requirements of Site Remediation (N.J.A.C. 7:26E-3.1 and 3.2) to determine if there are any potentially contaminated areas of concern that require further investigation.

Site and Remedial Investigations:

The purpose of a Site Investigation (SI) is to determine if contamination is present at identified AOCs above the applicable remediation standard. We combine state-of-the-art technology with our extensive practical knowledge to perform cost-effective site investigations. A Conceptual Site Model (CSM) is developed to provide a description of relevant site features and the surface and sub-surface conditions in order to understand the extent of identified contaminants of concern and the risk they pose to the receptors.

The next phase, a Remedial Investigation (RI) is performed to define the extent of contamination. We develop a clear understanding of the site (geology and hydrogeology) and contaminants (distribution and mass) at the conclusion of this phase, which forms the basis for a successful and cost-effective remedial plan.


EEC identifies remediation alternatives based on a review of the site information developed during the SI and RI phases, taking into account client priorities. EEC has extensive experience in conventional as well as innovative remedial technologies. The alternatives are evaluated for cost, duration of cleanup, cleanup certainty, required resources, site access, site restrictions, permitting issues, hazards, and future liabilities.

If desired by the client, EEC can perform turnkey services such as preparation of contract bid specifications, management of the bid process, and performance of remediation activities, resulting in the minimization of contractor change orders.

Ancillary Services:

EEC provides other services required as part of investigation and remediation. These services, depending of the complexity of the project, are either provided in-house or through collaboration with other firms that specialize in these services and regularly work with our firm. These services include but are not limited to:

  • Indoor Air Quality and Vapor Intrusion Study
  • Ecological Risk Assessments
