Soil and Groundwater Assessment

Summaries of our most recent Soil and Groundwater Assessment projects are listed below in chronological order (most recent first). See all case studies.

Soil and Groundwater Assessment, South-East England

Remediation Strategies were commissioned to asses the quality of soil and groundwater beneath a tank farm area prior to redevelopment and upgrade works to bring the area up to current standards. Works comprised window sampling, hand pits, borehole installation and associated chemical analyses. Reporting included factual and interpretative works, together with the creation of a redevelopment constraints plan.

Soil and Groundwater Assessment, North-West England

Remediation Strategies were retained to undertake contamination delineation works following the accidental release of 12,000 litres of red diesel at a logistics depot. Boreholes were installed radially outwards using a variety of techniques and allowed effective lateral and vertical profiling of soil contamination, together with identification of any groundwater impact. Works were undertaken in phases to ensure full delineation of the spill had been completed.

Soil and Groundwater Assessment, Northern England

Remediation Strategies assisted in the investigation, assessment and remediation of hydrocarbon vapours at a residential property. Prior to works commencing, the property was deemed uninhabitable due to hydrocarbon vapours. Investigation works revealed low hydrocarbon contamination in soil, but a number of potential vapour pathways were noted and remediation works were undertaken to break these migration pathways. After one week, no further vapours were recorded at the property.

Impacted Soil Arisings

Soil and Groundwater Assessment, Southern England

Remediation Strategies were retained by a leading UK Demolition Group to assist with the delineation of contamination associated with a former Strategic Fuel Depot in Southern England. The 6 Hectare site contained 4 No Bulk Fuel Installations for the storage of aviation fuel, with associated distribution and filling infrastructure.

Soil and Groundwater Assessment, Wales

Remediation Strategies were retained to assist a site owner proposing to upgrade a petrol filling station site in west Wales. The regulatory authorities required a soil and groundwater assessment to be completed as part of the planning submission, to demonstrate that the fuel storage and dispensing infrastructure beneath the site (which was to be left in situ) had not leaked historically and impacted soil and groundwater.
