Contaminant Fate and Transport Study

An SGS contaminant fate and transport study can determine the migration path of pollutants through your site, assessing each type and formulating an appropriate remediation plan. Contact our expert teams today to find out more.

Contaminants on your site, such as metals, chlorinated solvents, hydrocarbons and pesticides, and so on, can move and spread throughout your site, and also neighbouring catchments, rivers or protected aquifers. Some may exist in a solid state but can dissolve or be absorbed, accelerating their spread into groundwater and soil.

The best way to prevent the spread of pollution is to be aware of the different migration velocities of the various contaminants present on your site. A contaminant fate and transport study helps to gain a precise understanding of the behaviour of contaminants in your groundwater.

Using tri-dimensional hydrogeological modelling to simulate the contaminant behaviour in groundwater enables us to assess the natural attenuation patterns of water contaminations. Using the latest modelling software we integrate the local geological and hydrogeological context, rainfall, infiltration and attenuation conditions and use groundwater kinetics to model the biochemical reactions.

Our studies will enable us to propose suitable remediation techniques and a regular monitoring plan specific to your situation. Call us today to find out more about how to monitor and control pollution on your site.
