Remediation Services – HydroSolutions

The Remediation Services – HydroSolutions provides are described in the following section.

Remediation is the process of eliminating or reducing to an acceptable level, the risk due to exposure of a receptor (e.g. human or ecological) to a contaminant (e.g. a polluting or poisonous substance or energy that makes something impure, or potentially harmful).  Remediation is needed where a contaminant concentration exceeds a defined safe-threshold, such that it represents an unacceptable risk of an adverse reaction in an exposed population, environment or environmental value.  This is determined through a Risk Assessment.  Our capabilities in Risk Assessment are described here

Remediation can involve the following:

  • In-situ treatment to change/ amend the contaminant to a (more) benign form
  • Ex-situ treatment though removal & off-site treatment, with possible return to site
  • Soil vapour extraction, with filtration or destruction via flaring-off
  • Dig-&-dump, via excavation, removal & off-site disposal, with validation & reinstatement
  • Contaminated groundwater in-situ treatment, pumped recovery & treatment or disposal
  • Containment via e.g. Encapsulation, soil-cover, warning-layer, or other physical barrier
  • Monitored Natural Attenuation, feasibility & implementation
  • Administrative Management: e.g. restriction of access to an intractable site.
  • Investigation, monitoring, modelling, risk assessment
  • Risk characterisation, communication & management
  • Design of remedial programs
