Larson & Associates, Inc. (LAI) utilizes cost-effective strategies while working closely with the client and regulatory agency to develop specific objectives that support realistic cleanup and closure criteria. As a leader in environmental technology in the Permian Basin, LAI employs proven, cost-effective techniques.

Direct-Push Technology

Direct-push technology collects soil and groundwater samples to minimize surface damage, and reduce waste disposal costs. LAI uses a Terraprobe® all-terrain direct-push sampling unit for collecting various types of media, including soil, groundwater and soil gas.

Non-Intrusive Investigative Methods

Methods such as electromagnetic (EM) terrain conductivity, and magnetic surveys to efficiently map releases in soil and groundwater without surface disturbance.

Direct-push technology collects soil and groundwater samples minimizing surface damage and reducing waste disposal costs.

Innovative Technologies

Other innovative technologies used to achieve cost-effective remediation objectives include:

  • Troll 9500 probes to collect real-time downhole water quality data to determine contaminant-affected strata
  • Eductor pump technology for dual-phase recovery of phase-separated petroleum hydrocarbons, and soil vapor extraction
  • Air injection for in-situ remediation of dissolved organic contaminants in groundwater
  • In-situ chemical stabilization and chemical reduction
  • Soil vapor extraction (SVE) and bio-venting
  • Landfarming petroleum contaminated soils for reuse and liability reduction
