Ecological Health Risk Assessment
Pacific Environment provides practical outcomes based on extensive academic and corporate experience in applying ecotoxicological and risk assessment methods to assess ecological risks associated with your project. We can help you handle a wide variety of ecotoxicology related issues in a comprehensive and cost effective manner.
We can help you with:
- Aquatic and terrestrial ecological risk assessment
- Assessing metal bioavailability, fate, transport and aquatic toxicity
- Planning and undertaking ecotoxicological assessments
- Food web modelling for assessment of complex sites where bioaccumulation may be an issue
- Hazard assessment and classification of substances for environmental effects
- Derivation of de novo trigger values for ecological protection using species sensitivity distributions
- Contaminated sites ecological risk assessments
- Ecological risk assessments for new products eg., soil additives
- Environmental impact statements
- Structure activity modelling of aquatic toxicity and chemical/physical properties
- Predictive modelling of chemical concentrations in fish tissues
The National Environment Protection (Assessment of Site Contamination) Measure 1999 (the ASC NEPM) requires consideration of ecological risks at all contaminated sites. We can help you to identify the level of ecological risk assessment required and provide advice which will enable a more site-specific assessment of ecological risks. This will lead to overall costs savings in your projects.
