Housing development site cleanup completed in Taunton, Somerset
Telluric Land Remediation has completed a contaminated land remediation project on a large housing development site in Taunton, Somerset. During construction of foundations for the last few remaining plots, a significant amount of oil contaminated soil was uncovered. The developer required a rapid solution that would satisfy the requirements of the Environment Agency and Local Authority Planning. Contaminated soil was excavated to a depth of 4m and transported to a soil treatment hub site, the void being filled with clean imported material. Residual dissolved phase hydrocarbons in the groundwater were then treated by in-situ chemical oxidation.
