Remediation services contaminated groundwater
The contamination of groundwater usually occurs because of a former industrial process e.g. oil or gas works, solvent or manufacturing use, storage of oil, rail or transportation depot or accidental spillage.
Where harmful levels of pollution are present; Then, soil and groundwater remediation becomes essential for protecting public health and the environment.
Building on our 20 years of experience and expertise, we offer services to reduce significant risks caused by soil and groundwater contamination.
Our teams of experts will develop new and cost-effective solutions from the initial in-depth assessment to the design and implementation of remediation methods if these prove necessary.
We first investigate and create a risk assessment of the site.
Should harmful levels of contamination be present, we design the remedial measures to reduce or remove this risk.
Then we implement the treatment of soil and groundwater of the site.
Contaminated groundwater can pose significant problems for the potential re-sale or re-use of former industrial sites in terms of the practicalities of undertaking remediation works and the costs involved to clean up the land.
Groundwater may show a wide range of contamination, including oils, phenols, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, cyanide and arsenic compounds.
KDC can offer practical cost-effective solutions and design barriers and treatments to keep the contamination well below acceptable levels. We also liaise with relevant regulatory authorities such as SEEPA and the EA on your behalf.
