Remediation of Contaminated Soils

Loading

Soils are referred to as contaminated when the concentration of contaminant is usually higher than the ambient concentrations. There may be naturally elevated concentration of contaminants while in most of the cases, there is an apparent source of contamination (point source). Consultants at K2 Consulting Group understand the nature of chemicals, their migration and fate.

Typical contamination in soils from industrial, commercial and agricultural activities include but not limited to:

  1. PFAS (Perfluoro Alkyl Substances)
  2. Heavy metals (main health implications from lead, chromium, arsenic and mercury)
  3. BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and Xylene)
  4. PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons)
  5. TCE and PCE (Trichloroethylene and Tetrachloroethylene)
  6. Chromated Copper Arsenate
  7. Pesticides (Organo-Chlorine and Organo-Phosphate)
  8. Petroleum Hydrocarbons

Although full clean up typically involves removal of soils for offsite disposal, other treatment and containment strategies can reduce the project cost, while meeting the environmental and health standards.
