Excess Soil Management for Commercial Redevelopment in GTA

Following a series of site assessments and targeted remediation activities for soil and groundwater impacted by petroleum hydrocarbons, XCG was requested to assist in the characterization, management, and documentation of excess soil that existed on-site. The excess soil was a result of changing elevations from the long-time former industrial facility and the poor geotechnical quality of the existing fill and upper soils. Although the new excess soil regulations were not yet established in Ontario, XCG’s client desired to follow the general requirements for assessment, management and documentation. Aside from the hydrocarbon- and metals-impacted soils that were delineated and appropriately managed at a soil processing facility, an additional 9,850 cubic metres (19,700 tonnes) of soil required removal from the site to establish the necessary grades for parking and improved stormwater run-off.

SR (Sustained Release) ISCO Reagent Case Study

Achieving remediation site closure can be challenging, time consuming, and costly. Treatment train approaches are often a practical means to address difficult remediation sites. The optimal approach to soil and groundwater clean-up often requires the use of multiple technologies either sequentially or concurrently to achieve the most cost-effective approach throughout the entire life cycle of cleanup at a project site.
