Itasca specializes in site assessment, data analysis, the evaluation of impacts to water resources, the selection of remediation systems, the implementation of remedial actions that lead to the closure of sites where contaminated soil and groundwater are encountered, and seismology. Services are provided that range from the sampling of soil, sediment, and water to the construction of detailed models to be used in the assessment of the fate of chemicals in the environment. In addition, as a part of Environmental Assessments (EAs), Environmental Impact Statements (EISs), baseline investigations, and litigation, Itasca has completed many assessments of environmental impacts to the quantity and quality of water resources.
