Site Assessment, Remediation, and Closure


Lynker Intel has successfully characterized, evaluated and remediated impacted sites ranging from mining operations, military installations, commercial and industrial facilities, and community and religious centers across the US and around the world. Lynker key staff have been involved in all aspects of impacted site characterizations and remediation for over 35 years–leading the development and implementation of integrated solutions. With extensive experience in diverse environments, our team has undertaken projects from Hawaii to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and from southern Chile to the Northwest Territories of Canada.

With recognized expertise in characterization, analysis, and modeling, Lynker supports its clients by providing innovative solutions to complex environmental challenges. We select the right tools and approaches to match the complexity of the problem and the risks posed by the impacts requiring mitigation. Our expertise is understanding the complexity of a problem and applying the appropriate tool whether it be industry standard, the cutting edge or something in between to “answer the mail”. The Lynker Intel team provides a vast range of services in support of site assessment, remediation, and closure, including:

  • Conventional subsurface drilling, logging, and monitoring well installations;
  • Low-flow groundwater sampling;
  • Statistical analysis of environmental samples including BTV, EPC, and trend studies;
  • Hydrogeologic characterizations including single- and multi-well pump and tracer tests;
  • Downhole geophysics including gamma and neutron probe;
  • Direct push methods including LIF, Dye LIF, HPT, EC, and MIP;
  • Environmental forensic studies such as SIP and PIANO;
  • Bioremediation assessments, designs and optimizations
  • In-situ respirometry and push-pull kinetics studies;
  • Molecular biological assessments including customized in-house shotgun metagenomics;
  • Measuring, modeling, and predicting MNA and NSZD; and
  • Expert Witness and Regulatory Support

Lynker provides our clients with customized, practical, economic solutions. Our experience and expertise give us the perspective needed to select the appropriate approach and tools to cost-effectively assess, evaluate, and remediate impacted soil and groundwater with the goal of mitigating the unacceptable risks.

Climate Change and Population Growth

With decades of deep experience in natural hazards analyses and risk assessment, Lynker Intel partners with private and public organizations to operationalize climate change impact analytics, projections of population growth and subsequent increases in vulnerable assets, as well as other changes influencing hazard and risk exposure, in order to make better business and adaptation decisions for the future impacts of hazards. Decisions that must be made now.

Geohydrology and Groundwater Resource Sustainability

Hidden from view, groundwater provides a critical water supply resource to billions of people across the globe, while simultaneously providing a foundation to healthy ecosystems. Lynker Intel geohydrology professionals have the knowledge and experience to help clients manage their groundwater resource challenges.

Mine Water Management

Considering progressively more stringent regulations, high profile tailings dam disasters, declining ore grades and mine closure activities, sound water management strategies and models are paramount for successful and safe mining. Lynker Intel excels at assessing all phases and functions of mine water resources including the development of water-balance and groundwater flow-and-transport models to support the efficient management of water at a viable price. We understand that the availability, quality, and cost of water are key to investment decisions, and cost-effective water management is critical to profitability.
