High Resolution Site Characterization w Jacob Pongetti

In this episode, host Todd Perry welcomes PPM Geologist Jacob Pongetti, who works out of the Jackson MS office. Jacob is an expert in utilizing HRSC or High-Resolution Site Characterization tools to receive immediate, real-time data to eliminate (or at least reduce) uncertainty about what’s in the subsurface at your sites. 

According to the EPA website: HRSC is a new EPA focus area that reflects the state-of-the-science for environmental site characterization. High-resolution site characterization (HRSC) strategies and techniques use scale-appropriate measurement and sample density to define contaminant distributions and the physical context in which they reside, with greater certainty, supporting faster and more effective site cleanup.
