Since 1986 New England Bioassay (NEB), a division of GZA, has been one of the leading ecological and whole effluent toxicity testing laboratories in the Northeast. NEB’s laboratory is located in Manchester, Connecticut and provides services to more than 150 active industrial, municipal, environmental engineering, and risk assessment clients nationwide. NEB routinely performs screening, acute and chronic toxicity tests with both freshwater and marine vertebrates and invertebrates for discharges including processed wastewater, stormwater, non-contact cooling water, and groundwater. For facilities that are experiencing difficulty in controlling effluent toxicity, we provide toxicity identification (TIE) and toxicity reduction (TRE) evaluations. NEB also assesses the potential impact of new products/process lines on effluent toxicity by performing toxicological analyses on “simulated” effluent samples prepared in the laboratory. In addition, NEB provides ecological testing of soil and sediments. A variety of tests are used to evaluate sediment contamination with the specific methodology depending upon the sediment phase evaluated [whole sediment (solid-phase tests), suspended sediments, elutriates, pore water and sediment extracts].
NEB is widely known and is well regarded by state environmental regulatory agencies and the EPA and has consistently earned high ratings on protocols submitted as a participant in the WET Testing portion of EPA’s annual Discharge Monitoring Report Quality Assurance Performance Evaluation Program. NEB is also NELAC (National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Conference) certified to perform aquatic toxicity testing in the State of New Jersey and NH ELAP certified, which allows us to extend and do work in all states that require that certification. These technical credentials are backed with outstanding technical support and a philosophy of proactive customer service provided by a knowledgeable and responsive team.
NEB is pleased to announce their Lab Quality Assurance plan (LQAP) has been validated by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) New England District for sediment toxicity testing. All labs submitting test data to the New England District in connection with the USACE dredging program must have an approved LQAP on file that meets the requirements of EPA’s Regional Implementation Manual (RIM). NEB has been performing high quality sediment testing for our clients for over 25 years and is now among the select few labs in the United States validated to perform sediment toxicity testing for the USACE. NEB will immediately be able to provide sediment testing services to clients in the field of dredging and marine engineering who require this validation for USACE projects.

AirLogics, LLC, a subsidiary of GZA, provides comprehensive perimeter air monitoring services to clients engaged in environmental site remediation and construction related primarily to former Manufactured Gas Plant sites and other site applications including demolition and construction projects. The AirLogics system utilizes patented technology and is based on an automated, radio telemetry linked network of field monitoring stations to provide site operators with real-time air quality data and operational warnings.
The AirLogics Perimeter Air Monitoring System is the result of a recognized need to provide our clients with real time dependable data for both safety and regulatory concerns. AirLogics has designed and built an automated real-time perimeter air monitoring system that can be used in a wide variety of ambient air quality monitoring applications. The system was designed to monitor and document potentially adverse ambient air quality impacts on surrounding communities, and to demonstrate that on-site emissions are not causing an increased public health risk to nearby residents.The perimeter air monitoring system consists of a network of monitoring stations which are linked together via radio communication to a central computer system which collects, processes, and displays information from each monitoring station. Each monitoring station can contain analytical, climatic, and communications instrumentation including a gas chromatograph to measure volatile organic compounds (if needed), a respirable particulate meter to measure contaminated dust levels, shelter heaters and air conditioners, and a radio-based data acquisition system.
Address Air Quality Issues Before Problems Arise. When dealing with environmental and public health issues, instituting safeguards to proactively address quality control and enhance incident response measures are a must for today's companies. AirLogics' patented perimeter air monitoring system provides real-time, around-the-clock sampling and documentation to meet regulatory standards while guarding against potential air quality problems.
Powerful Risk Management. AirLogics provides supporting documentation that integrates into comprehensive risk-management programs meant to buffer companies from short-term and long-term environmental liabilities. A flexible, high-tech format enables risk managers and environmental engineers to continually monitor air quality for volatile and particulate airborne substances. The system also records and stores the air quality measurements during site cleanup activities. Air quality measurement and documentation like this are ideal for numerous sites including former Manufactured Gas Plant sites, hazardous waste sites, landfills, and more.
Versatile Design. Captured air quality data are relayed to a central on-site operations center where an alarm notifies site management when increased airborne substance levels are detected - enabling a quick, effective response. The versatile modular design may be customized to suit site-specific risk management objectives. System benefits include continuous monitoring and remote location access to reduce personnel hours necessary for site surveillance and environmental reporting. The cost-effective, reliable AirLogics system also offers companies the immediate investment benefits associated with positive regulatory and community relations.
