Description

To accurately design a conceptual site model and streamline your remediation and monitoring program, you must begin with accurate data. That’s why Beacon Environmental’s time-integrated passive soil gas surveys utilize versatile technologies that have been demonstrated to provide the most accurate data on sites where VOCs and SVOCs are of concern.

The state-of-the-art sampling and analytical procedures followed by Beacon Environmental are the foundations for a highly sensitive technology to identify trace levels of compounds present in the vapor phase. Sample collection is performed by using either a subsurface sampler emplaced within an approximately one-inch diameter hole advanced to a typical depth of one to three feet or by using a completely non-intrusive, surface-placed flux chamber. Either sampling approach is provided through easy-to-use BeSure Sample Collection KitsTM for your personnel to collect passive soil gas (PSG) samples.

After retrieval, the samples are shipped to Beacon Environmental’s laboratory for analysis following established EPA Method protocols (EPA Method 8260C or EPA Method TO-17). The resulting data – provided in just seven business days – identifies source areas and delineates the migration pathways. A comprehensive report that includes color distribution maps of targeted compounds – typically delivered in just 10 business days – fully empowers you to make faster, better-informed decisions about site characterization, spatial variability, risk assessment, remedial design, and monitoring the effectiveness of remediation activities.

HydroTerra has extensive experience at conducting soil gas surveys. Beacon’s PSG surveys are a very cost effective screening tool to provide a clear vision of the lateral extent of contamination and, importantly, enabling highly target efforts for active characterization of soil, soil vapour and groundwater.

– Effective and reliable screening for volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds in soil and groundwater
– Quickly identify source areas and delineate the lateral extent of contamination including migration pathways or indoor air intrusion pathways
– High resolution passive soil gas screening data improves development of site conceptual models and focuses expenditure on further active site investigation

Soil vapour characterisation technologies

Beacon Environmental Services specialise in soil vapour characterisation technology and services.  Technology includes specific soil vapour absorbents, a highly-specialized laboratory known for providing the most accurate and reliable soil gas, ambient air, and indoor air data in the industry using advanced sorbent sampling techniques.

Beacon Environmental Services achieve industry best data quality objectives, setting the standard for:

  • High-resolution data collection
  • Cost effectively guiding soil and groundwater sampling programs
  • Reliably monitoring emissions in air
  • Accurately measuring data to support vapour intrusion assessments
  • Superior methodologies
  • Effective sampling
  • Expert analysis
  • Comprehensive reporting
  • Expeditious turnaround

Beacon is accredited for the analysis of soil gas and air samples in accordance with ISO 17025 and U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) ELAP standards.  Passive soil gas samples are analyzed following U.S. EPA Method 8260C, with results based on an initial 5-point calibration.  Internal standards and surrogates are included in each sample analysis to ensure data are of the highest quality and defensible.

Beacon is the first company accredited for the collection of soil gas or indoor/ambient air samples.

HydroTerra support Beacon with field data collection services within Australia in collaboration with our clients.
