Remedial Options Appraisal & Design

rem-opt-1Having identified the extent of contamination through phased site investigation and risk assessment, the first step in designing a remedial solution is to identify the available technologies and options appropriate to the site.

Based on our systematic approach to remediation, our contaminated land teams have the experience, and technical knowledge to design remediation solutions which address all relevant pollutant and contaminant linkages.

For every site investigation project, we carry out extensive consultation with the regulators and various remediation specialists, in order to provide the client with a sustainable, cost effective and durable treatment solution.

We have experience in providing schemes for remedial works that meet design and construction needs, gain community and stakeholder acceptance and can be completed within commercially driven time frames. For more complex sites, the remediation strategy often involves laboratory or site pilot trials.

rem2Working with specialist remediation contractors we have successfully employed the following remedial technologies:

  • Excavation / Segregation / Screening
  • In-situ Bioremediation
  • Ex-situ Bioremediation
  • DNAPL Flow Path Management
  • Surfactant Flushing
  • In-situ Chemical Oxidation
  • Conductive Thermal Treatment
  • Air Sparging
  • Soil Vapour Extraction
  • Semi Permeable Reactive Barriers
  • Impermeable Barriers
  • Pump and Treat (Filtration and Separation)

Remediation Method Statement (RMS)

The agreed remediation strategy is designed and fully documented within a site specific Remediation Method Statement (RMS). The remediation statement document sets out the processes to be employed, the remedial targets to be achieved, how the remediation will be verified, and monitoring requirements. The possible environmental impacts (noise, odour etc.) and health and safety issues are considered in detail, with the relevant mitigation measures documented. The RMS is submitted to the Regulators and Planners for approval prior to commencement of any site works.

Southern Testing are continuing to work through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, including carrying out site work where it is safe to do so.

The Government have given express support to the Construction sector and have issued specific guidance for working on site. The Construction Leadership Council have also issued guidance.

We have revised our travelling and working practices to ensure that our staff are protected, and to meet the particular requirements of the guidance as well as our own risk assessments. The guidance and our working practices are under constant review.

Most site investigation work can be undertaken safely under the current restrictions.

We are committed to helping all our clients, old and new, during this difficult time. Should you have any site investigation requirements, or wish to discuss a particular project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
