Personnel at American Analytical and Environmental have gotten Act 2 (The Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act) approval for our clients since 1996 when Act 2 was legislated. Douglas Sammak, PG and Principle Geologist at AA&E, applied for and received the first Pennsylvania Act 2 Land Recycling Approval issued by the PA DEP’s Northeast Regional Office (March of 1996, Graner Property, Orefield, Lehigh County).
Since that time we have successfully applied for and received Act 2 Approval for numerous sites requiring different technologies, remedial approaches, and chemical standards. One thing that is consistent is our mission to be an advocate for our client, coordinate with the PA DEP, and close the case in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
AA&E is differentiated from our competitors by our in-house technical capabilities including a Certified Laboratory and Geophysical Expertise. These synergies present during the”Site Characterization” stage of the project. Arguably this is the most critical stage in the project during which time a “Site Model” is conceptualized and presented as a basis for remedy development. Site Characterization is also known as a Phase II Environmental Assessment.
