Pumps are used for a variety of applications on remediation projects. For purposes of this discussion we will limit the pumps discussed to those that are installed above ground on a skid or in a remediation equipment enclosure. Some of the typical uses of these pumps include:

Looking back over the last three decades of remediation projects, I’ve noticed a very interesting trend. Despite advances in technology and equipment, a good majority of the techniques we were using in the early 1980s are still in use today, only with less disruption to the property.
These days the service stations being built have quite the curb appeal. I have noticed in the southeast QT® (i.e.
As a Hydrogeologist with an interest in remediation of petrochemical impacted properties, I decided to do a Google search on the subject to see what I would find. Surprisingly enough the first few pages were nothing but ads from lawyers telling you how to refuse your inheritance or risk being completely ruined financially. Unfortunately these are the same folks who will turn around and buy th
These days when people talk about the laws on the books being ignored by our President and Congress, the first thing that comes to mind is Immigration. I would say let’s start with the US Constitution, but that is a very long discussion for another day.

Having an interest in electronics, I decided to dig into the specifications of some deals on TV’s and laptop computers. First of all, I am not saying there are no deals to be had, but what I found was interes
Vapor intrusion (VI) of radon gas has been recognized as a potential cancer risk for more than 30 years. Radium, a breakdown product of uranium, produces the short-lived daughter product Radon, which presents itself as a gas that can migrate into living space of overlying buildings.

This was a sad time for me as I was very fond of her. She had lived in New York City during the summer and in Greenwood SC during the winter. She had a very young soul for an elderly person, and was great fun to be around and talk to.
I first heard of Charles R. Livingston – a man who at the time had 35+ years experience in geology, geotechnical and environmental projects throughout the U.S. – through the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG) in 1987. I was a 30 year old Project Hydrogeologist and Environmental Department Manager for Law Engineering Inc. (LAW) in Greenville, South Carolina.
