Regulations provide generic standards for soil and groundwater conditions that are used when determining if a site is contaminated. These standards are also used in determining what level a contaminated site should be cleaned up to. However, these generic standards use conservative assumptions that may overstate the risks/hazards a particular contaminant may pose to human health or the environment for many sites.
A risk assessment involves determining site specific standards that still protect human health and the environment but are based on actual site conditions and land-use characteristics to determine relevant exposure pathways for the contaminants of concern.
S2S Environmental in partnership with leading Risk Assessment Experts has evaluated contaminated properties to determine site specific risks and develop comprehensive and well laid out Risk Management Measures to ensure protection of human health and the environment.
