What We Do / Direct Sensing & Drilling




Matrix Environmental, LLC - A WCEC Company

WCEC has merged our contract services division with Matrix Environmental, LLC (Matrix) to strengthen our Direct Sensing, Direct Push Technology (DPT) and environmental drilling capabilities for our national and international clients. Matrix was established in 1993, and since that time Matrix has completed over 3000 projects in more than 25 states, Canada, South America and Australia.

With a combined 30+ years of related field experience and more Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF), Membrane Interface Probe (MIP) and Hydraulic Profiling Tool (HPT) sites completed than any other vendor, Matrix is the global leader in high resolution site characterization technologies. Our expertise enhances the success of our clients as we deliver reliable data and responsive service for every project. Our equipment operators are highly trained technicians and scientists that specialize in providing direct sensing technology services, working with our clients to maximize the efficiency of field operations.

We also offer 2D and 3D visualizations of site characterization data in static or dynamic formats. Our Integrated Site Visualization (ISV) method incorporates direct sensing data, aerial photographs, CAD models, and GIS terrain, lithologic and contaminant chemistry data to build robust conceptual site models, elevating the level of understanding among all stakeholders.

Projects completed by Matrix over the past 20 years include:

  • RCRA/CERCLA sites

  • DOE/DOD facilities

  • UST, AST, Bulk Terminal, Pipeline and Refineries

  • State and Federal Superfund sites

  • Industrial/Manufacturing

  • Landfills - Soil and Groundwater plume delineation and landfill gas (methane) delineation

  • Brownfield Redevelopment

  • Agricultural Chemical Investigation

  • Former Manufactured Gas plants

  • Wood Treatment Facilities

  • Phase II property transactions

  • VIC sites

Direct Sensing - High-Resolution Site Characterization (HRSC)

Matrix Environmental specializes in delivering high-resolution site characterization (HRSC) strategies and techniques to our national and international clients. HRSC incorporates scale-appropriate measurement and sample density to define contaminant distributions, and the physical context in which they reside. This greater degree of certainty supports development of robust and reliable Conceptual Site Models (CSM) and faster and more effective site cleanup than traditional site characterization strategies.
