Baseline Data Collection Services

This project involved baseline data collection for Sullivan County for current air quality, current noise environment, and current water quality testing assessments for the area surrounding a 22,400 HP solar titan 130E turbine-driven gas compressor unit and associated infrastructure. KC developed a work plan that included defining the specifics regarding sampling locations for water, noise, and air. The water sampling was performed based on permitted access and review of any existing studies of prevailing groundwater movements as well as surface water directional flows. Noise testing was performed throughout the seasons to account for vegetation and the prevalence of outdoor activity at different times of the year. Air monitoring was performed at the location identified in the work plan. Current weather condition data was logged as well. KC cataloged and compared data to Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) reports, and data was added to future geographic information system (GIS) models.
