We offer a wide range of environmental consulting and remediation services for sites in Alaska. We have experience managing projects at every stage, from initial spill response to site cleanup and closure.
We provide field screening to identify contamination on military construction projects. Our timely plans and reports keep you on schedule, and our experienced staff keep your crew safe.
Contaminated Soil Management
We provide oversight of stockpiling, management, and disposal of contaminated soil encountered during military construction projects.
Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs)
We perform Phase I ESAs, meeting due diligence requirements for liability protections under CERCLA and state law, in accordance with ASTM 1527-21
Phase II ESAs
Phase II ESAs include sampling to define risks associated with a property. Leverage our local knowledge and expertise to guard against unforeseen liabilities.
Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs)
We prepare SWPPs for construction projects, and can provide inspection services alongside field screening.
From subsurface soil and groundwater sampling to vapor intrusion investigations, we can handle all aspects of site characterization.
From designing a monitoring program to installing, developing, and routine sampling of wells, we perform groundwater monitoring in all weather conditions (including -30F).
We have experience evaluating a wide range of remediation techniques with respect to cost, feasibility, and effectiveness, from small projects to multi-million dollar cleanups.
Brownfield Assessment and Cleanup
We work with rural communities to inventory, assess, seek funding, and clean up brownfield sites, maximizing local labor and economic benefit.
Vapor Intrusion (VI)
VI is one of the most challenging aspects of site characterization and risk management. We are experts in VI, having investigated this pathway at numerous Fairbanks sites.
Effective and timely initial response can save tens of thousands of dollars over the course of a cleanup. We respond quickly throughout Interior Alaska.
After the initial response, we provide site cleanup services to restore the site, including contaminated soil removal and remediation or in-situ remediation.
From backyard operations to 4-acre landfarms tilled by heavy equipment, we have the experience to ensure your landfarm is effective at treating soil.
We are local experts in phytoremediation of petroleum contaminated soil. We work in partnership with UAF and ADEC on long-term phyto studies and have completed multiple successful field applications.
Vapor Intrusion Mitigation
We have experience installing mitigation systems on a variety of commercial and residential buildings. In most cases, indoor air target levels were met within days of system startup.
Home Heating Oil Tanks
When your home heating oil tank is at the end of its service life, let us safely perform tank closure in accordance with state guidance. We also provide initial response and cleanup of heating oil spills.
Debris removal can be challenging when there is the potential presence of hazardous materials. We have the necessary training and certifications to safely characterize and remove debris and hazardous waste.
SITE CLOSURE EXPERTS
We have succeeded in closing many of the spill sites we have worked on, and have experience working with the ADEC contaminated sites program to move longer, more complicated sites toward closure. While we are a small company, we work with a talented and trustworthy network of subcontractors and partners: no project is too small or too large. We implement innovative solutions to save costs for our clients. These are just some of our success stories.

Arctic Data Services did a fine job repairing our home and land after a home heating oil spill. They crafted an affordable solution to fix what the insurance company would not cover, which saved us a ton of money. The repairs to the house were done swiftly and the work is of fine quality. All of the subcontractors were very skilled and did an excellent job.
