Integrated remediation strategy Coleshill

A site investigation had identified elevated concentrations of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) and Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) confirmed in both the groundwater and two soil hot spots located in the south eastern corner of the site. It was believed that this contamination resulted from the historical industrial activities on the site. A small River / Stream lies approximately 250 m from the site and was considered to be the prime receptor for any potentially migrating groundwater contamination.

Envirotreat was engaged by Tame Construction to agree an appropriate Remediation Strategy and Methodology with the Local Council to enable the discharge of the relevant planning conditions for the proposed development of new industrial units. The strategy comprised an integrated remediation approach that included the installation of an E-Clay groundwater treatment barrier with the prime objective of protecting the River / Stream along with in situ E-Clay stabilsiation / solidification of the identified soil hot spots. This approach ensured the protection of both human health and groundwater receptors.
