Depending on the local authorities and the country’s legislation a contaminated site assessment is conducted as part of the permit process.
Contaminated site assessments in mining are performed in order to evaluate the potential environmental pollution resulting from the mining activity and search for measures, which mitigate or eliminate the risks. Contaminated land contains pollutants in higher concentrations than normal, which increase the risk of harm to the environment and the human health.
TSS-UNDERGROUND has gained the know-how and the experience to offer site assessment services and remediation solutions to a wide range of contaminated sites.
Our experts can assess the likelihood of contaminant sources and quantify the risks associated with the sites in order to categorize the level of the risk, by surveying and using data from environment agencies, local authorities, historical maps and other sources. If necessary, they can carry out field investigations, by adopting the sampling protocols, in order to define the risks accurately and recommend remedial measures or the further investigation of the field.
