Our work product included a DEP approved hydrogeologic investigation of the landfill plume, post-closure groundwater and surface water monitoring plans, and assistance with the acquisition of the areas of affected groundwater quality. Consultation services to the owners in negotiation and administration of a Consent Order with the Connecticut DEP were provided.
