GeoTek’s Phase I ESAs are performed in general compliance with ASTM E1527-00. PHASE II SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATIONS A   Phase   II   investigation   involves   the   assessment   of   a   potentially   contaminated   site   through   the   sampling   of subsurface   features.   GeoTek   will   perform   a   comprehensive   and   detailed   site   assessment   to   identify   and   to characterize   site   conditions   and   potential   impacts   to   soil   and/or   groundwater.   GeoTek   also   has   experience designing and implementing remediation systems that satisfy federal, state, and local regulations.
