CONTAMINANT STUDIES

... are contaminant studies?
Contamination is the degradation of soil and groundwater quality as a result of man's activities. A contaminant study strives to identify the nature, source and extent of the contamination in an area. It also prepares the foundation for risk analysis and eventual remediation.

A contaminant study involves the following:
  identify the contaminant
  delineate the groundwater flow system
  identify the source area
  delineate the migration path and mode of the contaminant

... would you require a contaminant study?
Industrial sites often are sources of contamination. The contamination may have migrated on to neighbouring sites. Acquisition or sale of a property may require that any contamination on the site be identified, its risk factor determined, and the site possibly be remediated.

Contaminant studies are an important prerequisite for risk assessment.
