Land deemed contaminated is land area that may detrimentally effect human health and environmental health. Increasingly, those sites labelled as contaminated could also present important land planning, legislative and/or economic repercussions. Due to the direct and indirect effects on land usage and value, the consideration of contamination and solutions to it have emerged in significance in the last decade.
Many bodies, and especially government bodies have acted to develop appreciation of the likely problems of contaminated land-sites. Over time, this has brought about the progression of superior efficiency and methodology for remediating land that has been contaminated. Those who work with land sites would have noticed that we now have a sometimes-complex array of policies and laws guiding the list of uses and the restoring of affected land sites.
We love hearing from people about their industrial and commercial environmental remediation projects: Talk to AES about your project.
There exists multiple risks related to contaminated land. These include (but are not limited to) contaminated water, contamination of adjoining sites, and multiple contaminants on one site. Considerable caution are to be directed across the assessments, preparation and restoration for the sites to assist properly contain the contamination of the site.
