Soil Removal

The most straight-forward method of soil remediation is to remove contaminated soils from the site. This approach is often recommended when the volume of impacted soil is relatively small or when contamination is only present within near-surface soils. The steps associated with soil removal include:

  • Testing the soil for landfill approval
  • Staking out the removal area
  • Identifying and marking on-site utilities
  • Excavating the contaminated soil
  • Loading the soil into a dump truck
  • Collecting confirmation soil samples from the excavations
  • Sending the samples to a laboratory for analysis
  • Evaluating the sample results to approve backfilling the excavation
  • If any confirmation soil sample exceeds the cleanup objectives, then additional soil removal and additional confirmation soil testing is required.
  • Backfilling the excavation
