Since its inception, KourCo has completed hundreds of site assessments in the Gulf Coast region that required the delineation of subsurface soil and/or groundwater contamination. KourCo utilizes experienced and qualified geologists, engineers and environmental scientists to plan and execute all assessment activities in the most cost-effective manner possible. KourCo utilizes in-house drilling and sampling equipment, including a Geoprobe™ direct push sampling unit as well as a CME hollow-stem auger drilling rig to install soil borings, piezometers, monitoring wells and recovery wells. Utilizing in-house equipment rather than subcontracting for assessments allows KourCo to respond rapidly to releases at client facilities. KourCo utilizes the most current techniques for the collection and analysis of soil and groundwater samples, such as EPA Method 5035, recently implemented by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) for the sampling of volatile organic compounds in soil. KourCo conducts low-flow groundwater sampling and a variety of other specialized techniques that may be required, depending upon site conditions and contaminants.
