Ground Penetrating Radar

Oil Tank Sweeps / Ground Penetrating Radar [ go up ]
Property buyers should not purchase any property without a "GEO-PHYSICAL SURVEY" or an "OIL TANK SWEEP". There could be buried concerns such as sink holes, buried construction debris, abandoned septic systems, or old underground heating oil or gas tanks. Many companies use a metal detector or wand detector. These instruments only detect metal and cannot see through concrete or asphalt. Environmental Systems uses Ground Penetrating Radar to identify metallic and non-metallic soil aberrations. Ground Penetrating Radar can see down to depths of 18 feet.

UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK REMOVAL [ go up ]
Environmental Systems is a full service underground storage tank company and Licensed by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection ( NJDEP) for removal, closure, testing and remediation company. Residential and commercial tanks up to 50,000 gallons can be removed by Environmental Systems in house staff. Heating oil tanks can be easily removed and remediated if necessary and Environmental Systems participates in the NJDEP’s grant & Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program.

Site Remediation

SITE REMEDIATION [ go up ]
Environmental Systems provides petroleum and chemical remediation services  Soil and ground water remediation can sometimes be complex and requires experience and expertise.

Sometimes contamination plumes cross property lines and require different tiered approaches to clean-up.  Environmental Systems has developed patent pending “Bio-Remediation” technology which has been successfully used to remediate sites. This “Bio Remediation” technology substantially reduces project cost and closure time. Remediation of Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Perchloroethylene (PCE) can also been successfully remediated using this technology.

Previously environmental contractors would relocate and move structures that had soil and ground water contamination identified below the footing. Now these structures can remain and remediation of soil & groundwater can be completed saving the property owner thousands of dollars.

SITE INVESTIGATION [ go up ]
Environmental Systems can provide custom Environmental Phase I & Phase II Assessments to comply with ASTM and Financial Institution requirements for “Due Diligence”.  With over 20,000 Known Contaminated Sites in New Jersey the chances of finding one of these contaminated sites is great. Properties can be contaminated from offsite and onsite sources such as buried oil tanks, leaking pipe lines, illegal dumps and disposal of petroleum products and chemicals.

Environmental Systems utilizes company owned equipment and manpower to complete projects without the need for subcontractors.

With Environmental Systems “State of the Art” geotechnical subsurface evaluation equipment, soil and ground water samples can be collected through any type of soil conditions including bedrock to a depth of 100 feet below surface grade level. With the average commercial pollution clean-up exceeding $ 100,000 the property buyer must protect his performing property “Due Diligence” prior to purchase. Once the property is purchased and the deed is transferred the new property owner can be held liable by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) for remediation costs.

Investigation

Brownfield

BROWNFIELD SPECIALISTS [ go up ]
Remediation of industrial properties and redevelopment can be complex. Only a knowledgeable full service environmental firm can provide the expertise needed for successful project completion.

BROWNFIELD REDEVELOPMENT requires a team project effort composed of civil & structural engineers, environmental and remediation specialists. Environmental Systems can provide entire project services from conception to completion. Returning abandoned, contaminated properties to viable productive uses not only stimulates economic growth, but also insures protection of the environment.

VAPOR INTRUSION TESTING / SAMPLING [ go up ]

Environmental Systems provides VAPOR INTRUSION TESTING services which may be required.

The presence of volatile organic chemicals in contaminated soil or ground water offers the potential for chemical vapors to migrate through the subsurface soil or specific pathways (piping, cables, underground utility lines) thereby impacting the indoor air quality of building or residential structures.

The NJDEP has developed specific testing protocols and  reporting requirements. Commercial and residential properties that have onsite/offsite ground water contamination issues may also have ”Vapor Intrusion” Issues. Chemical intrusion into a structure may cause serious health issues to occupants of the structure. Environmental Systems provides these specialized services in addition to providing Vapor Intrusion Remediation Services.

Vapor Testing
ISRA

ISRA COMPLIANCE [ go up ]
The Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) which is implemented by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) imposes certain preconditions on the sale, transfer or closure of “Industrial Establishments” in the generation, manufacture, refining, transportation, treatment, storage handling or disposal of hazardous substances and wastes. This law applies to small or large business which handle hazardous substances or meet any of the above requirements.

Environmental Systems can provide sampling plans, remedial action plans, cost estimates for clean-up and remediation activities. Environmental Systems concentrates on minimizing the duration and expense of this potentially burdensome process through the diligent application of engineering & project management expertise

ECOLOGICAL RISK ASSESSMENT [ go up ]
Ecological evaluations and risk assessment are conducted at contaminated sites to address actual impacts or the potential for adverse ecological effects resulting from site related contamination.

Ecological Risk Assessment can be used to evaluate the effects of alternative remediation technologies and establish site specific clean-up levels for the selected environmental remedy that protect on/offsite receptors. The Baseline Ecological Evaluation (BEE) has proved to be an efficient and cost effective screening process and is required by the NJDEP to be completed by the property owner

Ecology
Air Quality

INDOOR AIR QUALITY INVESTIGATION [ go up ]

Many homes and buildings in New Jersey suffer from “Sick Building Syndrome”.  Sick Building Syndrome is condition caused by indoor pollutants that adversely affect the occupant’s health.

Poor indoor air quality is a cause of Sick Building Syndrome in addition to issues cause by Vapor Intrusion contamination.  Poor indoor air quality can be result of poor HVAC maintenance, substandard building materials, offsite/onsite pollution or bad general ventilation. Environmental Systems can provide air testing services designed for residential/ commercial buildings and provide a detailed report of the investigation along with remediation recommendations.

Poor Indoor Air Quality can also be caused by MOLD and Fungi contamination. Building structures with high moisture levels can be the perfect breeding area for MOLD. Mold contamination can trigger autoimmune defenses that cause adverse health effects. Sensitivity to mold and fungi may trigger allergic responses that may lead to serious health conditions. Environmental Systems provides mold remediation services at competitive rates.

WETLAND DELINEATION/WATERFRONT & PINELAND DEVELOPMENT PERMITS

Mold Testing and Remediation [ go up ]

Environmental Systems has spent over 12 years completing research and development of new technology for the treatment of petroleum contamination in soil and groundwater. These innovative Bio-Remediation based technologies use specialized microbes to treat various media. Our dedicated staff of chemists and environmental engineers have successfully remediated gasoline and heating oil contaminated residential and commercial sites throughout New Jersey. Now remediation of contaminated sites, once thought to be too expensive, can be remediated at a lower cost in months instead of years. Not all properties may meet the criteria that allow for the use of Bio-Remediation Technology. All properties are evaluated for environmental characteristics that would be beneficial for the use of this technology in property clean-up. Environmental Systems can also design 'Pump And Treat Systems' along with air sparging systems that can mechanically reduce soil and groundwater contamination.

Close Out of Old NJDEP Cases [ go up ]
Buyers of bank-owned properties should be cautious. Usually, these properties have checkered pasts and may not have been properly maintained. Recently, a buyer of a bank owned property has Environmental Systems complete an Oil Tank Sweep. Environmental Systems identified an abandoned, undergound 1000 gallon oil storage tank. Environmental Systems recommended that the tank be removed. However, the bank said their contractor would fill the tank with sand. This is the worst idea a property owner can have. Filling this tank with sand does not release the current or future property owners from liability if the tank is deemed to be leaking later and will become a bigger issue when the property is sold again. Just because you have an "approval" sticker from a municipality does not mean you have environmental approval from the NJDEP. The only proper way to abandon a tank in place is to complete soil and groundwater testing prior to abandonment and should only be done as a last resort.
