The Leader in Quality

Spectra is on DEC’s Qualified Remedial Consultants list and has been pre-qualified to perform investigation work at hazardous waste, petroleum, and Brownfield sites in New York State. Our staff has performed dozens of Phase I/Phase II investigations at contaminated sites, environmental impact assessments, subsurface hydrogeologic investigations, and remediation projects. Our experience includes Brownfield redevelopment projects, petroleum and UST tank remediation (oversight of more than 200 individual tank removals), pesticide site cleanup, groundwater assessment/remediation projects, and technical support at New York State and Federal Superfund sites.

Spectra is also a leader in subsurface imaging, combining our traditional consulting practice with cutting edge technologies to non-destructively inspect and map the conditions inside and below infrastructure systems and underground. We work closely with our strategic business partner and technology dveloper/owner, Underground Imaging Technologies (UIT), to perform non-invasive surveys using state-of-the-art systems that produce 3-dimensional constructions of subsurface features. The UIT Systems are the most advanced subsurface imaging techniques available in the United States and Spectra is an exclusive provider of these services in New York State.
