Project Overview

Peer Engineering, Inc. (Peer) will evaluate and recommend to MPCA groundwater monitoring staff prospective sites/locations for the installation of groundwater monitoring wells to evaluate contaminant/pollutant concentrations from various sources. Peer will oversee the installation of monitoring wells by retaining a state drilling contractor or preparing bid documents to retain well driller through the Department of Administration. Superfund staff will assist in the project by providing oversight of contractual requirements and provide technical assistance as needed. Groundwater monitoring staff will provide direct technical oversight and management of the project.

Summary sheets will be prepared and submitted to the MPCA for candidate sites showing the best potential for well installation. Once the target sites are selected Peer will facilitate the site access agreement process. Up to 19 monitoring wells will be installed and monitored by Peer.
