Hydrocarbon Contamination Remediation – Mill Street, Tipton

The site was historically utilised for industrial purposes – a timber yard was formerly located on the north of the site with the Limerick Iron Foundry / Boiler Works located in the central / southern areas (subsequently restructured as an engineering works).

The proposed development will comprise of 38 affordable houses / apartments and associated access roads / car parking / landscaping areas

The site investigations identified total petroleum hydrocarbons  and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons  as the prime pollutants of concern (in both soils and groundwater)

The approved integrated remediation strategy comprised of in-situ E-Clay Stabilisation of the two identified soil contamination ‘hot-spots’ and the installation of an E-Clay Permeable Reactive Barrier System designed to protect the adjacent River Tame – the integrated treatment approach was required by the EA to ensure that the River Tame was suitably protected.
