Nitrate Investigations

EPS was contracted by a nationwide consulting firm to conduct a groundwater nitrate investigation at a storage facility in central Nebraska. Groundwater vertical profiling in conjunction with on site analysis was conducted at the site to determine the vertical and lateral extent of the groundwater/nitrate plume. Depth to groundwater was encountered at 70 ft. bgs., and the profiling extended to a depth of 135 ft. The nitrates were successfully delineated on site within one week, and permanent recovery well placement was determined for remedial purposes. EPS was contracted by a nationwide consulting firm to conduct a groundwater nitrate investigation at a grain elevator in south-central Kansas. Soil Electrical conductivity profiling, continuous soil profiling and groundwater vertical profiling in conjunction with on site analysis was conducted at the site to determine the vertical and lateral extent of the soil and groundwater/nitrate plume. Depth to groundwater was encountered at 30 ft. bgs., and the profiling extended to a depth of 40 ft. The nitrates were successfully delineated on site within one week. EPS was contracted by a Wichita, Kansas consulting firm to conduct soil and groundwater nitrate investigations at several grain elevators throughout the southern half of Kansas. Continuous soil profiling and groundwater vertical profiling in conjunction with on site analysis was conducted at the site to determine the degree of the soil and groundwater/nitrate plumes.
