Groundwater Sciences Corporation (GSC) provides expert services for the legal and insurance communities. Senior staff have provided both consulting expert services and testifying expert services in support of toxic tort, contribution under Superfund, zoning hearings, and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) permit challenge matters. The subjects of the legal actions for which we have provided testimony include hydrogeology, interpretation of regulations, industry best practices, site characterization, site remediation, coal mine drainage, and methane migration into drinking water supply wells.
