RemedX was commissioned with the investigation and remediation a former manufacturing facility, ahead of the construction of a residential housing development. The site was used for numerous manufacturing purposes from the 1930s until it ceased operating in the 1980s.
The surrounding area consisted primarily of residential houses and was bounded to the south-east by a railway line located at the base of a steep slope.
In the final stages of the remediation process, RSK recovered composite soil samples from each of the windrows and submitted them for speciated hydrocarbon analyses. The results indicated that the established target values for the individual carbon ranges had not been exceeded and, following approval from the local authority environmental health officer, the windrows were deemed to be suitable for on-site use.
