Mutch Associates has many years of experience with planning and executing environmental field studies. Beginning in the early 1970s, the staff of Mutch Associates conducted some of the first in-depth hydrogeologic studies of pre-Superfund, hazardous waste disposal sites, and later applied that experience to Superfund and other waste disposal and industrial plant sites across the country and many parts of the world.
