AGC Participates in Charlestown Cleanup

Several members of Advanced GeoServices Corp’s (AGC) staff participated in a cleanup effort in Charlestown Township, Chester County, PA on April 6, 2019.  Dan Wright of AGC is the Township Engineer and Zoning Officer for Charlestown Township and coordinated AGC’s first Cleanup Crew.  The cleanup was successful and quite a bit of trash was collected.  We would like to thank Charlestown Township for offering this opportunity to us to give back to the community and to the volunteers of the effort for all their hard work:

AGC Recognized for Work on Tightened Schedule for a Property Transfer

Kudos to AGC’s own Rick Shoyer and Chris Valligny for being recognized by one of our clients for outstanding work on their project.  We were able to review the historical environmental data and prepare a summary letter in a very short time so the client could meet their deadline for a property purchase in Montgomery County, PA.  The client sent us a testimonial stating, “We SINCERELY appreciate your help on incredibly short notice.  You guys turned around a quality report quickly, and we will close on our home tomorrow with confidence given your analysis.

If you have a need for an environmental investigation, analysis, or report for a property, please contact Rick Shoyer or Chris Valligny for support:

Presentation at Bioremediation Conference

Steve Kirschner will be giving a presentation on “Evolution of a Remedial Injection Program in Metamorphic Bedrock” at Battelle’s Third International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies conference from May 18-21, 2015 in Miami, Florida.  The presentation will be on Thursday at 9:15 am during Session F9 – Bioremediation of Deep Contamination.  

Steve Kirschner

Steve is a Senior Environmental Engineer and Principal at Advanced GeoServices and has worked on numerous complex remediation projects throughout the country. 

We successfully attacked TCE in bedrock beneath a building by bedrock fracturing/injecting to enhance existing natural biodegradation using vegetable oil emulsion (VOE).  Our success with subsurface distribution resulted in achieving cleanup goals in the targeted treatment depths (10 to 120 feet bgs) and also in non-injection, deeper depths (up to 200 feet bgs) by eliminating downward mass flux and physical distribution of VOE through vertical fractures.
