  • 1. Summer Internship @ Impact Environmental
  • 2.
    • Company was founded in 1989 as an environmental firm capable of providing both consulting and contracting services
    • Office is located in Bohemia, NY, on Long Island
    • Impact Environmental employs 20-25 people, consisting of environmental engineers, environmental scientists, sales reps, and contracting service providers
    • Most of Impact’s work involves the inspection and remediation of contaminated soil, usually involving the transfer of property
    • Generally speaking, a lot of the bigger jobs are conducted in the five boroughs of New York City, where there’s especially a lot of contamination
    • List of Services Provided
    • Environmental Site Assessments
    • Geotechnical Services / Subsurface Investigations
    • Corrective Action / Remedial Services
    • Waste Management
    • Land Use & Planning
    • Environmental Engineering Consulting
    About Impact Environmental
  • 3.
    • Phase I ESA reports are usually required by banks for real estate purchase loans or refinancing
    • A Phase I normally includes:
    • Visual inspection of the subject property
    • Review of corporate records
    • Review of available Government documentation
    • Aerial photographic interpretation
    • Review of private databases (Cole Directory and Sanborn Maps)
    • Limited scope survey for lead-containing paints and asbestos containing materials
    • Evaluation of factors obtained during the assessment (recommendations & conclusions)
    Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I ESA)
  • 4.
    • A Phase II can include:
    • Subsurface soil sampling
    • Groundwater sampling (monitoring wells and Geoprobe)
    • Leaching pool/underground injection well sampling
    • Surface water sampling
    • Asbestos sampling
    • Lead paint and dust sampling
    • Geophysical surveying
  • 5.
    • A Phase III ESA determines the nature and extent of the contamination, and classifies the impacted media detected materials in accordance with Local, State, and Federal codes, rules and regulations for disposal.
    • Contaminated materials are classified as either hazardous or non-hazardous.
    • Working within the parameters of the NYSDEC, Impact Environmental determines proper waste disposal options which may include land filling, incineration, and recycling.
    • Most of the excavated soil or solid waste is shipped to Clean Earth facilities in New Jersey.
  • 6.
    • Much of my internship towards the beginning of the summer involved assisting environmental engineer Ted in conducting subsurface soil investigations using the Geoprobe.
    • The Geoprobe is an incredibly valuable tool because it allows an easy soil probing at any desired depth up to 50 feet underground.
    • Most soil investigations only require the Geoprobe to drill to 10-15 feet, where UST’s and water wells are usually found.
    • The long poles to the left are called soil probes and are used by the Geoprobe to drill through almost any material
    Geotechnical Services / Subsurface Investigations
  • 7. Additional Info on the Geoprobe
    • Shown on the lower left is a Geoprobe® GH-40 sampling system mounted on a 4x4 Kawasaki Mule which is capable of investigating a variety of terrains and environments
    • We used the mule at the Verizon Site in Manhattan to get the geoprobe through narrow doorways
    • The Geoprobe on the van folds up for easy transportation
  • 8.
    • The GPR is used to locate and define the nature of buried objects without disturbing existing conditions
    • Used for Underground Storage Tank (UST) detection, Underground Injection Well (UIW) detection, locating construction debris, and hazardous waste mapping.
    • Very useful for Geoprobe drilling and any excavation activities.
    Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Services
  • 9.
    • Database for the Verizon site’s analytical contaminant testing (Using Microsoft Excel)
    • Assisting in the Phase II subsurface soil investigations at the Verizon site
    • Conducting various Phase I inspection procedures for other environmental scientists
    • Assisted in the proof-reading and editing of various corrective action work plans for other environmental scientists
    • Completed a Health and Safety Plan for NYSDEC Spill #03-12646
    • Traveled around with company president to business meetings and conferences
