There are usually two main elements to environmental
problem-solving -- a good understanding of the materials involved and an
acceptance of gravity. Gravity
works, even if you don’t pay your gravity bill.

believes that a disciplined and logical approach should be the basis for
addressing any environmental challenge.
This process has been described by Elving, Grasselli, and Lucchesi
(Analytical Chemistry, 1976, Vol. 46, p. 1034A) as “the analytical
approach”. It requires
having a staff that possesses a solid foundation in chemistry, geology,
environmental science, and engineering.
The team assigned to the project must be acutely aware of the
interplay between chemical theory and common practice.
first step is to define the problem at hand through interaction with the
client to obtain his or her knowledge of the problem and to understand the
requirements to be met by the solution in terms of needed level of
expertise and timing. Targhee
firmly believes in communicating answers, not data.
Reports provide an interpretation of the information obtained on
behalf of the client in a clear, consistent, and meaningful format that
can be used to help solve the problem. Our
commitment is to complete all tasks using the highest level of expertise
and ensuring that all underlying chemical theories relating to the
problems are thoroughly investigated.
