Environmental Consulting Services for Manufacturers

Assessing new markets, building new plants, evaluating potential merger/acquisitions and keeping up with global competition is tough enough. Add to this the ever changing environmental compliance, remediation, possible litigation, and the bad press that accompanies environmental liabilities, and the challenges can become overwhelming.

Results

In the case of the manufacturing client TRW that needed remediation for their Remedial Action Plan (RAP); we conducted a thorough peer review and noted that the previous consultant had installed a monitoring well network that was totally incapable of indicating whether or not subsurface oil was present. They got it completely wrong. We found the previous consultant did not understand groundwater flow in general, let alone the Site-specific conditions. Following a low-cost, focused investigation, we found only very small and very isolated areas of free oil were causing the problem. Because the previous consultant had missed these “little” details, the remediation system they installed was way over-engineered and much more expensive than needed.

Dragun conferred with the Regulator and then re-wrote the RAP to reflect the actual Site conditions. The Regulator accepted our RAP and ever since, our client has had only minimal annual operation and maintenance costs.
