What We're Doing

Palmer was retained to assess the environmental conditions of the property and its suitability for on-site septic systems and potable water wells, prior to property aquisition. Our support drew the property owner’s attention to any environmental risks and evaluated the septic and potable water servicing potential of the land for future development. The Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) investigated the presence of potential on-site and off-site sources of environmental concern. We then advanced boreholes and installed groundwater monitoring wells across the property to support assessment of soil and groundwater chemical quality. A preliminary hydrogeological assessment characterized soil conditions and groundwater-related constraints, identified the aquifer intended for water supply, and provided preliminary recommendations on septic design under the Ontario Building Code.

Environmental Due Diligence

Assessments that identify and investigate the chemical quality of soil and groundwater associated with areas of potential environmental concern in support of property acquisitions and dispositions, property financing, and land development approvals.


Site-specific assessments using engineering and environmental methodologies to characterize the physical and chemical conditions of groundwater chemistry in support of design and permitting for clients in the mining, aggregate, land development and infrastructure sectors.
