Driven by experienced personnel and client demand, GTA Environmental Services, Inc. (GTA ESI) was established, during 2006, in an effort to expand the remediation services offered by the firm. GTA ESI provides the following services:
- Removal of Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)
- Demolition and Removal of Above-ground Storage Tanks (ASTs)
- Risk Based Closure
- Excavation and Removal of Hazardous and Non-hazardous Soil
- Hazardous Metals Impacted Soil Stabilization
- Operation and Maintenance of On-site Groundwater Treatment Systems
- On-site Treatment of Petroleum Impacted Soil (Bioremediation, Soil Vapor Extraction, etc.)
- Design and Installation of Various other Forms of Soil and Groundwater Remediation Systems
GTA ESI serves clients throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey. We strive for simplicity and reliability in our remedial system selection and design, exploiting natural geologic conditions within the design of the selected remedy and future site development goals. We specialize in remedial design and implementation, including engineering, equipment selection, and systems integration and operation, with an eye toward innovative concepts that fulfill project objectives by maintaining appropriate perspective on cost, feasibility of implementation, and cleanup goals.
Once site data are collected, our scientists and engineers analyze the information using their understanding of the nature and extent of the contamination, migration pathways, and physical and chemical properties to determine alternatives for site cleanup. We evaluate the concentration and volume of contaminants at a site, so that an understanding of how these contaminants may be transported to human and environmental receptors can be developed. Key to the process is the quantification of the level of uncertainty in the estimates of risk and potential costs associated with the uncertainty. Geological, geotechnical, hydrological, and other environmental data are compiled to allow us to evaluate applicable alternatives. Through risk-based cleanup, we have achieved regulatory closure using more realistic and acceptable remedial action levels resulting in substantial reductions in remediation costs.
GTA ESI has the knowledge and experience to undertake any size remediation project, at any level of involvement. Our services range from construction management and oversight through full turnkey execution of projects ranging from $10,000 to over $1 Million. GTA ESI's integrated site remediation solutions reduce costs because they are site specific, technically defensible, and optimize cost-effectiveness. Our technical staff help establish priorities, negotiate cleanup levels, and reduce risks as an integrated component of the remediation process. GTA ESI's goal is simple: make remediation projects effective, efficient and affordable.
