Following is a step by step graph highlighting the procedure required to classify soil waste and to determine its proper disposal location.

In short, the Phase 1 objective is to identify risks and put them into context (if they exist). So, by far the most important element of your Phase 1 report is the delivery of a simple yet robust description of risks at your site in a format referred to as a Conceptual Site Model or CSM.
Depending on the specific nature of the site and what the desk study finds, the CSM might be presented as a table or as a diagram, or both. What you are looking for is a clear, concise description of the findings and for these to be put into context, click on the following images for examples of how a CSM might look.
You might be provided with a series of photographs and historic maps, annotated to present risk areas and then a table providing an assessment of those risks, while the example below does not include a risk ranking, you might also be provided with a rank of low to high risk:
To put things into context you may also be presented with a model of your site, usually a simple, not to scale illustration just to help set the stall for any future investigations, like this one:
The detail in the CSM becomes that bit more critical when a site is found to have environmental issues needing further investigation, which will be outlined in the upcoming blogs and available on our soon to be published White Papers: “Everything you wanted to know about Phase 1 Site Investigations, but were afraid to ask” and “Everything you wanted to know about Phase 2 Site Investigations, but were afraid to ask”.

When dealing with groundwater remediation as with most things in life there are various options. Do you want to treat in situ? Do you want to extract the water and dispose off site? Or extract and treat on site?
Choosing the right treatment technique can require a lot of site investigation and data collection to decide upon the correct treatment. Once a treatment has been decided upon, approval and licences from local authorities may need to be obtained. Site management and monitoring/sampling regimes will need to be organised. Continual data collection, reporting, a final validation and a final summary report completed.
Soilution’s most used remediation techniques include :-
- Pump and treat
- Extraction and disposal
- Chemical oxidation
- Air Sparging
- Vapour extraction
Common practice can be to install an Impermeable barrier to contain or restrict contaminant migration. Ultimately this will not remove the contaminant so a treatment system may need to be installed along with the barrier.
