Supervision of Contamination Remedial Work

Supervision of contamination remedial works is normally necessary where fuel tank or contamination 'hot spot' removal is required.

Representative soil and groundwater samples will be taken and tested, sometimes supplemented with in-situ testing, to demonstrate that no unacceptable levels of contamination remain in the ground (and that no soil is unnecessarily removed/ treated).

Groundwater quality monitoring might also be undertaken to demonstrate that the remedial measures have improved groundwater quality.

Case Study

Supervision of Contamination Remediation of Former Petrol Filling Station

Ruddlesden geotechnical recently supervised the contamination remediation works for residential development of a former petrol filling station site in Exeter.

Case Study

Coal Mining Assessment, Somerset

A Phase 1 Geotechnical Assessment and Coal Mining Risk Assessment indicated that a proposed residential development site in Nailsea was potentially at risk from mining-related subsidence as a result of shallow mine workings within the coal seam beneath the site.
