Representative sampling is a critical aspect of an environmental assessment, and our staff members are trained in appropriate sampling procedures, sample preservation, and documentation. Superior’s field services staff members provide environmental sampling, monitoring, and field testing of wastes, air, soil, and groundwater in accordance with United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and state guidelines and protocols. We use the most cost-effective state and USEPA approved sampling and testing methods and equipment available. All equipment is well maintained and in excellent working condition.Superior’s integral professional services include various testing and field sampling capabilities.
Superior’s range of field services includes:
Superior has a unique set of skills and equipment required to respond to environmental emergencies. Superior has team members who are trained in the Incident Command System (ICS) and who are able to perform initial assessments of environmental spills and releases, as well as provide longer term source and plume identification and tracking. Our team has been involved in the responses of numerous, high publicity, catastrophic spills where Superior mobilized personnel and equipment to rapidly assess and track spilled materials whether underground, on water, or on land. Once the initial assessment is in progress, our staff is able to assist in regulatory briefings to ensure that the science behind the situation is easily understood.
Superior’s emergency response and monitoring teams are skilled in providing the following services:
Superior also maintains a network of allied service providers who can mobilize heavy equipment, vacuum trucks, boats, containment booms, portable office space, concession providers, aerial reconnaissance, and other equipment that might become necessary in responding to releases.

Superior offers field screening services using photoionization detectors and field gas chromatographs for determining the presence and extent of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the field using United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) 601/602 screening methodologies. Both services allow for field evaluation of environmental conditions within relatively short time frames, creating a shorter turnaround time for reporting and a cost-effective approach to site assessment and remediation that reduces or eliminates future mobilizations.
