Soil Pollution: Soil Pollution and Construction

2010-11-11  Construction sites are important causes of soil pollution in urban area to their almost ubiquitous nature. In general, any chemical handled at construction sites may pollute the soil. However, the higher risk came from those chemicals that may travel easier through air and which are resistant to degradation and bio accumulate in living organisms.

Contaminated Soil In Construction Projects Enva

The following summary aims to provide some background to fully understand the issues that contaminated soil can present during a construction works. What is Soil Contamination? Soil contamination is when the concentration of pollutants in the soil are higher than would be naturally, specifically due to the impact of past activities that were undertaken on the site and have consequentially impacted on the underlying soil. What Causes Soil Contamination?
