Overseas Subsurface Investigation and Analysis

Overseas Subsurface Investigation and Analysis

Bourg-de-Thizy, France


The Challenge

An American corporation required a thorough subsurface investigation carried out to U.S. quality standards in an area of southern France where environmental expertise is limited.

The Solution

JCO mobilized all necessary equipment and a mobile laboratory to an industrial site in southern France. Using innovative subsurface groundwater profiling techniques, geophysics, and the technical resources of a complex on-site analytic laboratory, JCO defined contaminant source areas for subsequent removal. The investigation included soil and groundwater profiling, soil vapor analysis, and subsurface geophysics. Surface water/groundwater interactions were also evaluated and a long-term monitoring plan developed.

The Benefits

A complete laboratory and field investigation operation was developed on the site by mobilizing state-of-the-art equipment from the U.S. and other European countries to complete a high quality subsurface investigation of soil, groundwater and surface water.

The resulting data were used to develop a focused, cost-effective remedial strategy that helped our client meet its responsibilities following U.S. protocols and environmental regulatory frameworks.
