Bioremediation Is an Effective Method of Remediating Groundwater Impacts

Bioremediation has emerged as a proven and innovative approach that greatly reduces chlorinated solvents and light petroleum groundwater contaminants.  Since bioremediation is implemented with minimal site disruption, it is particularly useful when remediation of impacted groundwater is needed beneath a commercial/industrial property or in a tight space.  In many situations, utilizing in-situ bioremediation techniques to remediate groundwater is the most cost-effective and efficient approach to achieve site closure.

EWMA’s team of science and engineering experts customize a unique technically integrated turn-key approach to design and implement a bioremediation program using the following framework:

  • Assessment of Subsurface Conditions
  • Development of a Conceptual Site Model (CSM)
  • Pilot Testing of Bioremedial Approach
  • Implementation of Bioremedial Approach
  • Post-Bioremediation Monitoring

The key to implementing a successful bioremediation program is to simulate the natural bacteria existing within the subsurface (biostimulation) to such an extent that they greatly accelerate the chemical degradation process to bring contaminants below regulatory thresholds. 

The long-term benefits of utilizing bioremediation also work well within the more realistic administrative goals of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs). Bioremediation techniques can achieve accelerated downward trends in contaminant levels that are clearly the result of enhanced biological processes.  Such results can support a Limited Restricted Use Response Action Outcome (RAO) and transition of an environmental case to regulatory closure via a Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA) program.

EWMA offers not only years of bioremediation experience and expertise, but also the support of Arizona State University’s cutting-edge research into the most effective bioremediation agents.  Our bioremediation approach can be performed under our flagship SECUR-IT® Guaranteed Fixed-Priced Remediation Program, in which we stand behind our remedial approach with a financial performance guarantee.

EWMA News

  • How vapor intrusion is discovered and remediated

    Co-Authored by Don Richardson, President and Jacob Strauss, Senior Engineer.

    Vapor intrusion has evolved into one of the highest risks commercial real estate developers and owners face. Vapor intrusion can pose a greater risk than contaminated soil or groundwater. The rise of vapors from contaminated sources into buildings can pose an immediate risk if they reach hazardous levels.

  • EWMA and CohnReznick to Host Seminar on Estate Planning: Is Your Property At Environmental Risk?

    Panel discussion to be held on December 5, 2019 at CohnReznick, Roseland, NJ

    EWMA, an environmental consulting and remediation firm, and CohnReznick, a national advisory and accounting services firm, announced they are co-hosting a complimentary estate planning and environmental seminar, on Thursday, December 5, 2019.

  • Tackling post-remediation care in New Jersey

    Environmental remediation projects are rarely a one-and-done undertaking. A site may need to be monitored and maintained long after regulatory agency closure, if the active remediation did not achieve the most stringent cleanup standards.

  • Andrew Truman Promoted to Senior Environmental Scientist at EWMA

    Congratulations go out to Andrew, who has been elevated to Senior Environmental Scientist. Andrew has been in the environmental industry for eight years and has worked on a variety of projects including superfund sites and beach fill restoration projects

  • EWMA announces the Promotion of Brianna Tramutolo to Environmental Scientist I

    Brianna began as an intern at EWMA and has quickly risen through the ranks to environmental scientist—a promotion that further demonstrates EWMA’s commitment to cultivating internal growth.
