Working closely with clients to develop effective strategies to resolve environmental concerns related to contaminated soil, groundwater, sediment, and indoor air, our experts are able to quickly integrate complex technical and legal issues to provide efficient solutions. We have provided expert support to clients on contaminant issues at landfills, industrial facilities, refineries, gasoline stations, and dry cleaning facilities. Our experts often utilize technical tools, such as databases, GIS, environmental forensics, and modeling, to perform complex technical analyses that stand up to technical and legal scrutiny. DBS&A staff members have provided expert opinions and testimony in both state and federal court to resolve a wide range of environmental characterization, monitoring, and remediation problems.
For example, we routinely perform quantitative evaluation of non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) migration and groundwater impacts from solvent releases, leaking tanks, and pipeline leaks; site investigations and remedial action alternatives analysis associated with RCRA and CERCLA corrective action programs; vapor intrusion risk assessment consistent with U.S. EPA and state protocols; and development of cost allocations for remedial cost recovery.
