Site Characterization

Ransom’s environmental expertise includes site characterization: We work directly with our clients to define the extent of a site’s environmental issues and collect all data necessary to develop a comprehensive remediation plan for the full life cycle of a project, from assessment to development and regulatory closure

Ransom’s expertise includes preparation of site characterization and cleanup plans as required by the EPA’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).  Our TSCA service team is the preferred provider of a major New England/New York electrical utility company for the characterization, reporting and remediation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) releases to both outdoor and indoor environments.  

Other site characterization clients include local municipalities and school districts, as well as colleges and universities, private developers and their legal teams. These services are invaluable to clients particularly during early-phase building renovation and rehabilitation.

Our experienced team of scientists and engineers deliver timely and effective solutions for all issues and our long standing working relationships with many federal and state regulators ensure the development of compliant solutions based on the current regulatory structure.
