Excavation of Contaminated Soil

Excavation of Contaminated Soil

Many R. Baker & Son demolition, environmental services, and brownfield site projects require excavation and disposal of contaminated soil and debris.  Before a project can begin, areas of possible contamination must be identified through research of site activities and communication with the client, and soil must be tested for contaminants. 

Soil that is found to contain pollutants must be segregated from clean soil, and both must be disposed of properly.  Contaminated soil must be transported to a treatment facility or to a landfill equipped to handle polluted soil and other materials.  At times, contaminated soil may be treated onsite using a mobile treatment facility. 

Excavated soil may be placed directly into a dump truck for transport to a landfill or treatment facility, or, if it is to be decontaminated or disposed of onsite, it may be stockpiled on tarps or in containers, then covered to prevent it from blowing or washing away.  Workers must follow safety procedures to avoid contact with toxins, and prevent the spread of contamination offsite.  Truckloads of soil should be properly covered and trucks undercarriages and tires may require cleaning before leaving the excavation site to avoid contaminating local roadways. 

R. Baker & Son personal are expertly trained and fully equipped to perform a broad range of environmental remediation and decontamination, including the excavation of contaminated soil.
