Contaminated Sites

Contaminated areas can pose risks to the environment and human health. The contaminants can originate from ongoing or historical activities or even from the geological development of the area such as the presence of sulphides in bedrock.

We can help our clients through the entire process of managing contaminated sites – from inventory and investigations to the completion of suggested measures. We have extensive experience working with assignments in contaminated sites and we support both private and public sectors. Our consultants are specialists regarding interpretation of environmental legislation, dialogue with authorities as well as designing investigation programs and execution of field work. Atrax also has a group of consultants with extended experience working with sulphide contamination in soil and bedrock. We  offer guidance in planning, investigation, analysis and classification as well as suggesting mitigating measures. We have a unique possibility to assist our clients in this difficult area.

Example of services provided:

  • Inventory of present and previous operations of potentially contaminated sites, desktop study (phase I)
  • Investigation; sampling and analyses of materials (such as soil, water, sediment, air and building materials): The results will be assessed and classified according to guideline values set by the Environmental Protection Agency (phase II)
