RACER (Revitalizing Auto Communities Environmental Response) Trust, which was created to clean up for redevelopment properties and other facilities owned by the former General Motors before its 2009 bankruptcy, has selected Terradex to provide web-based environmental monitoring at five RACER locations in four states.
The engagement is a one-year pilot program for Terradex’s LandWatch, a secure web service that monitors and alerts clients to land activities or issues that may jeopardize the reliability of institutional controls, engineering controls or other remedial elements. A land activity alert allows for proactive engagement to avert potential damage or environmental risk, the company says.
Terradex will provide environmental monitoring at current or former RACER properties in Indianapolis; Kansas City, Kansas; Moraine, Ohio; Pontiac, Michigan; and Flint, Michigan.
Terradex will monitor and provide alerts on excavation notices, building and land development permits, well permits, ownership changes and other matters that may affect environmental conditions and controls.
The global market for environmental sensing and monitoring technologies is projected to reach U$17.4 billion by 2020, according to research published last month by Global Industry Analysts.
