Validation/ Verification Testing of Contamination Remedial Measures

Validation/ verification testing is required to confirm that the recommendations provided within the contamination remediation strategy/ method statement are followed and that the site is suitable for the proposed land use.

Following remediation, this might take the form of trial pits, to check sufficient depth of clean soil is present in garden areas, and/ or groundwater sampling, to demonstrate that remedial targets have been met following treatment/ remediation.

Evidence of upgraded water supply pipes might also be necessary and the gas protection measures may need to be verified by a specialist third party contractor.
