Investigations & Characterizations

In acting as technical advisors to municipalities and other public entities throughout New England, St.Germain Collins has become an expert in water quality monitoring, soil and water sampling, and data interpretation, including MEDEP Chapter 405 monitoring rules. Additionally, we are skilled in analyzing geochemical trends and groundwater flow dynamics to identify the cause of any anomalies.

Soil sampling and water quality monitoring are integral parts of environmental projects, whether to map groundwater contamination or to confirm that surface water compliance standards are being met. St.Germain Collins has the experience necessary to properly collect and preserve soil, groundwater, and surface water samples in the field for laboratory analysis. This experience is a result of sampling monitoring wells and stormwater for solid waste facilities, gasoline stations, bulk oil facilities, and factories on almost a weekly basis.

Experience you can rely on… when it counts!
