Environmental Services

Geo Solutions is experienced in accessing environmental conditions related to geology. Typically we recommend the use of geophysics as a prerequisite to intrusive investigations such as drilling monitoring wells, piezometers, and excavations for remediation. Typical geophysical evaluations focus on the shallow subsurface where the fate of contaminate release begins. Later, geophysical evaluations focus on deeper fate and transport through geologic medium. Geo Solutions can provide a complete of recommended geophysical methods to help solve the many challenges of environmental challenges.
