The development lies immediately adjacent to the Manchester Ship Canal, a roughly square plot of land occupying 0.4 hectares on the
western edge of the Media City Development, Salford Quays.
Envirotreat was commissioned by Bouygues, to prepare a remediation strategy for the management of soils onsite and associated
offsite disposal to enable the discharge of the relevant planning conditions stipulated by Salford City Council and the Environment
The remediation strategy incorporated the following:
- A proposed ‘remediation scheme’ to effectively delineate the identified hazardous classified soils from the non-hazardous soils to ensure appropriate off-site disposal
- A ‘Discovery Strategy’ incorporating necessary protocols to address ‘contamination not previously
- A Verification Plan
In total, 3,515 tonnes of non-hazardous soils and 2,641 tonnes of concrete / hardcore were removed from site for offsite disposal.
Additionally 1,617 tonnes of hazardous soils were transported to a hazardous waste recycling facility.
The site was being developed for a new canal side residential development.
