Ontario – Iroquois Falls A – King Kirkland
A - A Environmental Services, Inc. was founded in 1992 by the current principals, Dr. George Duncan, M.Sc., Ph.D., M.C.I.C., C. Chem., an environmental analytical chemist with 25 years' experience and Mr. Robert H. Jones, B.Eng., P.Eng., a consulting civil engineer with over 30 years' experience.
Dr. Duncan is also the founding President of Accuracy Environmental Laboratories Ltd., a CAEAL-certified and MOE-licensed laboratory and Mr. Jones is founding President of Acculab Engineering - Testing Ltd., an engineering consulting/soil testing laboratory located in Timmins.
A - A Environmental Services Inc. was formed in May, 1993 to perform a wide range of consulting services including: Environmental liability assessments of industrial, commercial and residential real estate, gas stations; Field sampling and monitoring of sewage lagoons, landfills; Spill delineation and monitoring; Hydrogeological investigations; Industrial hygiene/occupational health and safety; Archeological investigations; Consulting Chemists, On-site Analysis and Laboratory Services.
A - A Environmental Services has a unique strength in having a chartered chemist on staff capable of clearly defining the chemical issues involved. An environmental assessment is, more than anything else, an assessment of the chemical condition of a property. The core subject in defining environmental contamination is chemistry and an in-depth understanding of chemical principles is essential in the assessment of the chemical condition of any property. Many properties, particularly gas stations, are being improperly assessed due to a failure to understand the chemical properties of the contaminants. For instance, a soil contaminated with gasoline will readily lose its volatile hydrocarbons within the first few minutes of exposure to air and failure to guard against this can lead to a gross underestimation of contamination levels when these samples reach the laboratory. Some sites may exceed guideline levels in other contaminants but the contaminant may be "locked up" within the soil and will not leach into the environment and therefore may not need an expensive cleanup.
Through its affiliated company, Accuracy Environmental Laboratories, A - A has available a fully equipped laboratory service certified by a national accreditation agency (CAEAL). By using field chemists skilled in on-site analysis, much expense can be avoided both during an assessment and the subsequent cleanup. Soils can be analyzed accurately in the field and results obtained within minutes which avoid lengthy delays for excavators, trucks and others involved in the site cleanup. Indeed, costly extended studies can be avoided simply by monitoring a cleanup as it proceeds, using on-site analysis.
Protocols for Performing Environmental Site Assessments
All environmental site assessments are carried out in accordance with CSA Z751-94 guidelines (Phase I) as well as the various M.O.E.E. and C.C.M.E. guidelines. Other details on A - A are given in the Appendix. Environmental audits are performed in accordance with the "Generally Accepted Standards for Environmental Investigations" published by the Consulting Engineers of Ontario (1993).
