Project Overview

Widseth Smith Nolting (WSN) 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.

Widseth Smith Nolting (WSN) will review proposed monitoring sites and obtain access to monitoring well locations.  Once reconnaissance is complete WSN will assist the MPCA with preparing a bid package for drilling 34 monitoring wells. WSN will observe and coordinate well installation and baseline sample collection/analysis. A well installation package will be developed at each site.
