Soil and Groundwater Contaminant Evaluations
A Comprehensive Site Assessment (CSA) is conducted when the Initial Assessment Report indicates that soil and/or groundwater was not effectively remediated to regulatory guidelines and standards through initial cleanup methods. The objective of the CSA is to determine the physical characteristics of the released substance, horizontal and vertical extent, potential exposure to the public, risk to potential receptors, and hydrogeologic conditions of the soil and groundwater contamination. In North Carolina the NCDEQ requires the CSA Report to be submitted within 90 days from their notice requesting the investigation.

The CSA Report provides a detailed evaluation of the soil and groundwater environmental impacts and the data required to determine the most cost effective and feasible method for remediation. Technical mistakes on the CSA investigation can be costly and delay a project’s completion schedule. MGF’s Principal Geologist, Michael Fallon, has 25 years of extensive experience with conducting CSAs throughout the Southeast and is licensed in Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.
