Testing and Remediation of Real Property for 


EEA Contact:  Nicholas Recchia


EEA's engineers and scientists have performed Environmental Site Assessments and Phase II Subsurface Investigations for over 2,500 commercial and industrial properties throughout the metropolitan New York/New Jersey/Connecticut region. These evaluations have been performed for major commercial banks, insurance companies, as well as Fortune 500 companies, leading developers, small businesses and local agencies. These testing and remediation programs have ranged in size from small commercial facilities to large industrial sites.

EEA has established a record of reliability, credibility, and good working relationships with regulatory agencies such as the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Energy, and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources.

In addition to the Phase II site investigations, EEA provides cost effective turn-key solutions for remedial planning and design, and remedial action/implementations for the cleanup of contaminated sites. EEA combines diverse capabilities of experienced engineers and scientists to create a multi-disciplinary team who can respond quickly and efficiently to specific needs of our clients.


EEA's Haz-Mat Testing and Remediation Division (HTR) staff are experienced field geologists, hydrogeologists and environmental engineers. In addition to conducting detailed testing and remediation studies, senior staff have provided expert testimony at hearings and legal proceedings relating to environmental and groundwater issues. All studies are performed under the supervision of licensed Professional Engineers and/or Certified Hydrogeologists.

EEA maintains a wide variety of hydrogeological field equipment for purging, pump-testing, and sampling wells; well elevation surveying; groundwater flow determination; soil gas testing instruments; measurement of selected water quality parameters; soil sludge and leachate sampling; stream sampling; electromagnetic conductivity surveys; and volatile organic compound measurements. Health and safety equipment includes combustible gas meters, portable organic vapor analyzers, radiation meters, respirators, and protective clothing. Field personnel have been trained in the use of this equipment, and have completed the OSHA required Hazardous Materials Workers Training Course.

Well drilling, deep soil boring, and laboratory analytical services are subcontracted as necessary. EEA has worked with many subcontractors, and typically prepares job specifications and requests quotations from several qualified subcontractors for a specific project. EEA carries Professional Liability (Errors & Omissions) Insurance, as well as Contractors Pollution Liability Insurance for the Phase II/III Testing and Remediation Work.
