Environmental characterization and assessment
Know Your Site
Environmental characterization is the crucial first step in determining the liability and hazards associated with a site. And with a project this big – you’re going to need the right partner.
Know Your Risk
A good environmental characterization analyzes the extent of contamination on any given site and assesses its risks. This leads to remedial actions, providing systems and strategies to better define impacts on the environment caused by site activities.

We Have the Tools
Anderson has developed tools in-house, specially tailored for site characterization making the process seamless and thorough.
We at Anderson, understand that environmental characterization is a crucial step in any site remediation process. It is necessary for providing vital information required for analyzing the extent of contamination and for assessing the risks associated with it. It also leads to the design of possible remedy actions, up to the final selection of appropriate remedial systems and strategies. With our extensive experience in this field, we aim to show how we do the end to end processes that are involved in conducting environmental characterization. We can guide you through the action that we do each step of the way,
The End Result
We’re all about tangible results. When we complete an environmental characterization, our clients are given a cumulative document that empowers them to make decisions regarding their site. Because of the accuracy of our Site Characterizations and knowledge of remedial processes and regulations, our Remedial Cost Estimates are as realistic and feasible as possible.
