[SOLVED] Contaminated Land
Write a report on the Phase 1 Site Investigation (Desk Study), an assessment of the chemical laboratory results of the Phase 2 Site Investigation (Ground Investigation), and give Recommendations for the Remediation and Monitoring Methods, for the case study given on the short course. The report must include the following sections: Title: Executive summary (e.g. scope of report, methodology and main findings) Contents page (e.g. section numbers, headings and page numbers) Introduction (e.g. scope of report, description of location) Desk study (e.g. an outline of the probable historic land uses of the area and the potential contaminants, based on historic maps and geological maps of the area) Chemical Results (e.g. a commentary on the results given, and the levels that could trigger remedial action) Risk assessment (e.g. the likelihood and severity of potential contaminants causing harm) Recommendations for Remediation and Monitoring Methods (e.g. justification for recommendations) References Assignment word length: 1500 words maximum 1. Observe the Google Maps satellite images and street view to view the area as a walk over survey. Use the post code B69 4HH. 2. Make notes of the present-day land use and possible industrial processes and potential contaminants, pathways and receptors/targets. 3. Using the BGS Geology of Britain Viewer, determine the solid bedrock geology and the superficial deposits on the site. Use the post code B69 4HH. 4. Make notes on the rock and sediment types and any geological structures and their relative permeability and potential as pathways. 5. Using the Environment Agencys flood risk maps, determine the type and level of flood risk. 6. Consider the role of flooding in contaminated land. 7. Investigate the historic maps of the site to determine the land use on various dates. 8. Make observations of the land use and put them into a table with the dates. 9. Do a search on Google to find out about history of the site, including the Springfield Chemical Works, Tharsis Works, etc. and other named locations on the maps. 10. Using this history, try to find out the possible industrial processes that may have caused contamination and the types of potential contaminants. 11. List these in the table above alongside the dates. 12. Consider the source pathway receptor concept for contaminated land. 13. Carry out a risk assessment for the change in land use from an industrial site to a domestic housing development with gardens. Risk is about likelihood, severity of impact and vulnerability. 14. Using the Soil Guideline Values for the substances found in the chemical testing, determine if the levels of potential contaminants are above these values in any of the samples. 15. Determine the need for remediation of the site and recommend the types of remediation methods that would be most suitable. P
