Environmental Risk Assessment of Soil Contamination. Environment pollution is a burning topic of the day. Air, water and soil are being polluted alike.
Advances in Environmental Geotechnics pp Cite as. Contaminated land management is now a mature discipline and geotechnical engineers are very familiar with desk studies and site investigation procedures. However, remedial practice varies very considerably with legal and financial instruments moving practice in many countries away from landfill. Sustainability also has become a topic for debate and the paper considers some aspects of sustainability as applied to contaminated land management. The paper then gives an overview the current status of the principal remedial technologies that are in use worldwide and seeks to identify the constraints both technical and regulatory that influence the selection of remedial actions. The avoidance of future contaminated land is obviously very important but has received rather little technical analysis.
The first edition of this ICE design and practice guide became one of the most popular ICE publications after it was published in Since the first edition, there has been a multitude of legislation on the environment and the adoption of many of the principles of the European Landfill Directive. This has meant specialists, regulators and engineers are grappling with interpretation of guidance frameworks, new levels of testing accuracy and increased public perception of environmental damage.

Contaminated material can affect the underlying ground or water within the ground and could harm people, building materials, water courses or nature. If you would like to find out whether a particular property had a former land use that may potentially have caused some soil contamination you can request a report from the Pollution Regulatory Team. If a site is to be developed as part of a planning application it is dealt with under the Town and Country Planning Act, and it is the developer's responsibility to make sure the land is suitable for its proposed use.
The planning system has many uses, some of them controversial and others widely supported. If a developer wishes to develop a site and the land is known to be contaminated, remediation of the problem will be one of the conditions of the planning consent. But what about hidden contamination? And what if the contamination that has been disclosed is actually minor compared to another remediation problem on the site? You might imagine that local government would be on top of this issue, and they have indeed been active in identifying potentially contaminated sites.
