How Do Our Environmental Surveys Work?
Environmental surveys can range with the techniques used. It typically comes down to the circumstances of the type of project and the surrounding environment itself. There are a few common surveying techniques that you may see with one of our surveyors.
A visual inspection can be utilized to assess the presence and growth of asbestos or mold in a property. Surveyors have a trained eye to look out for certain environmental indicators. The visual test will also be the first one done upon preliminary inspection. Visual inspections can help identify what environmental issues are present.
Water sampling is another common technique employed by our trained environmental surveyors. This technique involves taking a sample of water and testing it for quality and for the presence and levels of various pollutants.
While visual inspections can spot discoloration and debris, water sampling allows us to get a more accurate depiction of what is occurring beneath the surface.
Earth sampling is similar to water sampling except for we take part of an area's soil for examination. This technique allows us to measure for any pollutants in the soil. This helps us develop an action plan to remediate the soil to its natural, flourishing condition.
We also use maps and statistical data to cross-reference our results with existing environmental survey information. This helps build out our surveying reports and identify any trends that may be forming. It also helps us to gain a historical sense of the land to see what issues have come up in the past.
Historically obtained statistical data helps us form a more accurate predictive report of what could occur. For example, we use this type of data to determine the odds of flooding in a particular area.
Major Operation Areas
Environmental surveyors can put their skills to use for a number of projects. Common projects include:
Flood Risk Assessments
This report outlines the probability of a flood will occur in a designated building or area. We can determine, using historical data and field tests, an area's risk for flood potential so that you can assess ways of moving your building out of harm's way.
Contaminated Land Assessments
If the land has been used in the past for industrial or environmental waste, that land quality is compromised and could lead to structural deficiencies in your building or property. Our land assessments are best carried out before construction takes place, but we can also complete reports during and after construction. These reports help stakeholders create risk management plans and be prepared for land failure.
General Environmental Screenings
These types of surveys provide a general overview of potential risks to a land or water area. The goal of this assessment is to identify the risk of problems and what problems carry the greatest likelihood. These reports may not be as targeted as others where a known contaminant or risk exists, but they can still help you measure any environmental risks and plan accordingly.
Asbestos is a common problem in older homes throughout the United States. Our team can examine a property to determine the presence and scale of asbestos. Time is of the essence with asbestos exposure. If you feel that you may have asbestos on your property, please contact us right away to schedule an asbestos removal consultation.
Remedial surveying involves containment efforts. We employ structures or devices to stop the spread of environmentally harmful or hazardous materials. This technique can also be used to consolidate and remove contaminated soils and cover landfills in order to reclaim the land and begin the process of restoration.
If demolition services are required to begin the restorative process, Rock Environmental specializes in building demolition and interior demolition. We can handle any project, no matter the size.
Our staff is trained to safely assess and remove environmentally harmful substances. Rock Environmental is well-equipped for the job, whether it is mold, asbestos, lead, biohazard materials, or another harmful agent.

We can map out a system of monitoring wells in order to maximize their efficiency. These wells are a proactive solution to put in place so that contaminants do not take over and ruin a healthy water supply.
