Company Description


Our Scientific Approach

The Clark Group was founded in 1991 under the name Clark Environmental Services, P.C. The firm's primary objectives are to assist business and industry in facilitating solutions to regulatory problems involving the release of chemicals and other regulated substances into the environment. For over 25 years, we have successfully provided solutions predicated on the utilization of sound scientific principles. Our mission is to produce technical conclusions which will minimize exposure to redundant regulation and to use reformatory and science-based provisions in environmental law to the maximum extent practicable. Together these two practices result in the most effective and cost-beneficial management to achieve regulatory compliance. We recognize, within the universe of sites, there are vast complexities which require integrated solutions at varying degrees. The appropriate characterization and evaluation of the dynamics at a contaminated site is the key to achieving maximum protection from regulatory and third-party exposure, at the minimum necessary expense.

The Clark Group's philosophy of solution-fitting begins with the collection of all relevant factual information to develop a complete, multi-dimensional and scientifically defensible understanding of each problem. Therefore, each site should be evaluated based on site-specific characteristics determined initially through a conceptual model and tailored as data is obtained to insure that only the work which is integral to the goal is performed. The appropriate comprehensive analyses require a highly specialized skillset and record of experience. Our experience includes thousands of sites over eight southeastern states in all geological settings. Our methodology is based solely on the scientific method which has been tested and proven effective for centuries.  

Managing Objectives and Expectations

The implementation of remediation is like the execution of a business plan which has planned, managed, and measurable objectives. Regardless of regulatory policy, in the interest of sound financial management, the cause of aggressive remediation should not recklessly squander the sustainability of business. It should never be a regulatory objective, or consequence of compliance, to place the viability of a business at risk. Likewise, business and industry should consciously practice excellent housekeeping as a proactive measure to protect its interests.

The most significant consequences caused by environmental contamination are most effectively managed by obtaining a complete understanding of the geometry of a plume, the hydrogeological forces which drive the engine of transport, and the natural forces which are already performing mitigation. Most often, that information alone provides enough verification to successfully argue a passive approach to remediation which may include managing human and environmental risk by enlisting institutional restrictions and sometimes engineering controls. Oftentimes, this is effectively promoted through the use of Brownfields Programs.  So long as land usage over the affected area is managed and memorialized, it is possible to completely alleviate these most difficult business problems in a most successful way.
