Overcoming Bedrock Remediation Challenges
“Rock Solid” Usually Isn’t and that Used to be a Real Challenge for Site Remediation Site remediation work often focuses on contamination present in soil and/or overburden groundwater. In-situ remediation of these media is relatively straight-forward using a variety of
The Vapour Intrusion Issue: Remedying a Mist Opportunity!
Over the years Vertex has published newsletters on innovative remedial methods for various soil and groundwater impacts. But we recently realized that we’ve never before focused our information sharing on the vapour phase of subsurface contamination. This newsletter article is
Contaminated Soil as Backfill? Save Money, Be Sustainable!
Vertex is Expanding – Journey to a New Shop & Office!
Vertex is growing and we’re excited about our recent move into a new shop and office! After ten years at the same location, we were busting at the seams. Despite multiple expansions within our own industrial complex, our landlord finally
The (Off-)Road to Better Understanding of Difficult Sites
Using High Resolution Characterization (HRSC) at Remote Access Sites with Vertex’s new High Res UTV When people hear “off-road,” “remote access,” or “all-terrain vehicle” typically they imagine something with caterpillar tracks, rugged, or large 4×4 capabilities. Basically, something extreme capable
Groundwater Recirculation for More Efficient Site Remediation
Groundwater recirculation can increase the effectiveness and speed of in-situ remediation activities at contaminated sites! Many sites with groundwater contamination require an in-situ remedial approach that can treat difficult or hard to reach contaminants in the subsurface. Excavating these impacts
