What is land remediation?

2 min read

In the modern world, especially in the UK., land is at a significant premium. There is more and more pressure on builders and developers to not infringe on greenfield sites anymore but look to the brownfield site. These are areas of towns and cities that have become disused and derelict. As our economy’s reliance on manufacturing and industrial production rapidly declined, the need for these areas to be developed and reimagined is paramount. However, while it would be wonderful to turn them into affordable housing and parkland, the land itself can be worse than useless, plus it is possibly dangerous to human health. What can be done to change this?

It’s where a Land Remediation Company like soilfix.co.uk/services/groundwater-soil-remediation-services come in. They will assess the site’s level of contamination and start the process of turning it back into something useful. They can make the land green and grow again.

The approach follows several stages. One stage is to remove a level of the topsoil completely. It can then be replaced with better quality soil. If this is not an option, then the soil can be cleaned and made good with chemical treatments and stimulants. No land is ever truly lost when there is remediation that can be achieved. With this skill and knowledge, councils have been able to take back land through forever lost.
