Contaminated Soil Placement and Disposal

Any substance in the soil that exceeds naturally-occurring levels and poses human health risks is a soil contaminant. Common contaminants include pesticides, petroleum products, asbestos, lead, copper and creosote.

ENP will review the laboratory analytical data, or collect it if necessary, for the purpose of determining soil “Waste Classification” from a regulatory compliance standpoint as part of the process of contaminated soil disposal process. Our environmental chemist will determine what contaminants are present, and if the level of the contamination exceeds state mandated standards.

Our staff will coordinate the soil removal project from start to finish, including handling of all applicable document submissions, facility approvals and dump truck manifesting.

The biggest risks for soil contamination are in urban areas and former industrial sites. Contact us if you’re looking to excavate contaminated soil from a site for disposal in a landfill. The process will depend on:

  • The size of the contaminated area
  • Contaminant concentrations
  • Buildings and site activities in the area
  • Location of the disposal facility
