Remediation of two former fuel depots

Posted: 15/11/2019

Remediation of two former fuel depots
We have just successfully completed remediation of two former fuel depots in the south-west.  

The first involved delineation of two hydrocarbon contamination plumes in the soil to a depth of 4m. Impacted soils were then excavated and placed in engineered biopiles. The biopiles were turned and monitored for bioremedaition over the following 3 months. Once the bioremediation soils were below remedial targets they were reinstated into the excavation. No soils were removed from site saving the client a considerable sum and the project was completed a month ahead of programme.

The second site involved shallow hydrocarbon impacted soil which was excavated and disposed of offsite (due to space restrictions on site). Impacted groundwater was improved by placing oxygen releasing substrate into the impacted areas. Clean soils were brought in to backfill the excavation. A quick programme meant we were in and out in three weeks, a week ahead of programme.
