A comprehensive site investigation was carried out by a qualified scientist to determine the extent of the contamination plume caused by the oil spill. This thorough examination was crucial in understanding the full impact of the incident on the property and the surrounding environment. After collecting the necessary data, the scientist produced a Contamination Assessment Report, which provided an in-depth analysis of the contaminated areas and the severity of the pollution. Alongside the report, a detailed Scope of Works was developed to outline the necessary remediation actions required to address the contamination.
The remediation works primarily involved the excavation of easily accessible contaminated soils, ensuring that the majority of the polluted material was removed from the site. Additionally, special attention was given to treating any residual contamination at the base of the excavation. This process ensured that even the most stubborn traces of pollution were effectively dealt with, minimising any long-term impact on the environment and safeguarding the health and well-being of the property’s residents. By meticulously addressing the contamination and adhering to the Scope of Works, the property was successfully restored, demonstrating the effectiveness of a comprehensive site investigation and targeted remediation actions.
