Environmental Assessment & Remediation

Surface water and groundwater investigations are critical components required for environmental assessments of resource development projects. Our services include baseline characterization and impact evaluation, soil and groundwater remediation, baseline monitoring, and groundwater fate and transport modeling. With combined strengths in hydrology and engineering, we look for cost effective measures to reduce or eliminate unfavorable impacts.
Norwest has provided Phase 1 and Phase 2 environmental site assessment services on behalf of both sellers and potential purchasers of industrial property since the mid-1980s. Our involvement with such clients includes carrying Phase 1 and Phase 2 assessments forward into remediation design and implementation. This broad background allows us to offer a deeper perspective on environmental assessments than many consultants focused solely on documentation alone.
