AMBIENT AIR TESTING
Cashins & Associates: Committed to keeping the air on and around your property safe and compliant.
Construction and remediation projects can negatively impact surrounding properties in a variety of ways. A few examples include:
- Dust that is laden with toxic materials may be released.
- Diesel equipment exhaust may be drawn into an adjacent fresh air intake plenum.
- Odors and toxic gas may be released when excavating in naturally occurring organic peat layers.
Benefits of an Air Monitoring Program
A comprehensive perimeter air monitoring program helps to provide the information you need to ensure that a project moves forward without impacting your neighbors. Air monitoring provides continuous information that helps you make quick decisions related to adjusting work tasks or procedures. Leveraging this information to implement a response to actual onsite conditions reduces the likelihood of complaints and therefore greatly reduces the chance of project delays.
Failure to develop an air monitoring program may result in negative consequences that may include:
- Complaints to City Hall
- Work stoppage
- Issuance of fines and penalties by regulatory agencies
If a perimeter air monitoring program is in place when a complaint is issued, the concern may be immediately addressed by environmental data. This data is beneficial when dealing with concerned neighbors and authorities, because it shows that your company is concerned about the project on the surrounding community. The collected data also offers liability protection in the case of lawsuits.
Cashins & Associates has the equipment and expertise to implement a cost-effective perimeter air monitoring program for your project site. We will manage the entire program and work closely with the project management team to ensure a successful outcome.
