Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, MUNDELL & ASSOCIATES, INC. was founded in 1995 to provide professional earth and environmental consulting services to industry, municipalities, governmental agencies, engineering firms and the legal community.
Mundell has successfully consulted for some of the largest multinational corporations on the planet, advised non-governmental agencies and Federal regulatory bodies, and supported many other engineering and consulting firms who have relied on us for our technical experience, judgment and commitment.
Our personnel act as project engineers, scientists, program directors, senior technical consultants, and expert witnesses on environmental and water resources projects throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South America, Europe and Asia.
We enjoy helping our clients respond to both their large and not-so-large environmental and earth science concerns. Our people pride themselves in being service-oriented and bending-over-backwards to exceed our client’s expectations.
We have developed a reputation for is tackling the ‘not-so-easy’ and ‘not-so-small’ environmental problems that arise where wrong decisions can mean significant liability, consequential costs and multi-year periods for achieving goals. Some typical situations in which our past successes have been notable include
We frequently are called in to deal with significant soil impacts (greater than 2000 tons) and groundwater plumes (greater than 10 acres in size and 1000 ft in length) because of our proven track record in setting and then achieving site cleanup goals within the time frame predicted and the costs estimates developed for the project.
Having someone drink contaminated water impacted by your property or company is likely to be one of the most intense situations that you can face in the environmental field. MUNDELL can bring its experience with just such matters to bear on your specific situation - whether it is facing just one, or possibly several hundred residents - to explain how their situation will receive the highest priority possible. Knowing you have a committed consultant with experience in effectively and reliably remediating contaminated drinking water and protecting citizens from harmful chemical exposures will help calm fears, add confidence in your ability to deliver what is promised, and create an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.
Off-site impacted groundwater being released into adjacent streams, rivers, and lakes, or migrating beneath residential homes and causing indoor air vapor concerns are situations MUNDELL has effectively resolved for its clients.
When the construction of a project can be delayed because of environmental issues, MUNDELL has been able to use our combined engineering and geologic expertise to assure surprises are minimized, cost and schedule estimates are sound, and health exposures for construction workers are acceptable during planned activities.
We have faced some of the most challenging subsurface conditions present on four continents and managed to achieve goals in environmental projects: multiple aquifer systems, fractured/faulted bedrock, Karst terrains, and/or rapidly changing subsurface conditions from glacial depositional patterns or historic human-induced landscape modifications.
MUNDELL excels in studying and remediating old (more than 100 years of development) and large (greater than 50 acres) commercial/industrial sites with long and complex histories of development, multiple chemical use types and storage areas, utility line crossings, and burial of production wastes at unknown locations.
We have managed environmental projects from $500 to $30 million for our clients, and enjoy the challenge of bringing a project team together than keep our clients’ financial concerns foremost in mind while delivering innovative and technically-sound solutions that achieve project objectives.
With over 45 legal cases as the selected environmental or earth science expert since 1984, MUNDELL has offered opinions on environmental state-of-practice issues, regulatory compliance, time-of-release questions, allocation of responsibility and costs, insurance coverage, and 3rd party damage and exposure concerns.
