The Phase 2 report is likely to contain a number of remedial options but the process of providing a Remediation Method Statement involves the necessary authorities and this document details out the necessary steps that are required in order to return a parcel of land to be suitable for its end use. The works carried out in line with this will normally require a verification process.
The Land Contamination Risk Management (EA, 2020) guidance Stage 2 and 3 processes also include a remediation options appraisal and any required process to be detailed in a Remediation Method Statement.
Remediation of a site may be a simple single stage or a more complex multi-stage process which can also include several reporting stages:
- Liaison with Local Planning Authority Environmental Health Officer
Agreement of procedures and required scopes
- Scrutiny of data for imported materials (e.g. topsoils, subsoils)
- A watching brief for material to be removed
- Various site visits to test stockpiled materials that have been or are to be imported or site-won materials that are intended for re-use
- Assessment of the proposed layouts and modification of these in order to mitigate risks posed by the site/to receptors
- Installation of various mitigating measures (e.g. incorporation of hydrocarbon or other gas resistant membranes, capping, etc.)
The works carried out in line with this will normally require a verification process.
What is the output?
The output is a conceptual model review in a report that essentially shows the levels of risk and how they are reduced by implementation of the remediation techniques involved.
How are the reports presented?
