Contaminated groundwater can pose a significant threat to public health and the environment.
The contamination of groundwater usually occurs because of a former industrial process, such as oil or gas works, manufacturing, rail depots or accidental spillages. These type of pollutants can also pose problems for the re-sale or re-use of former sites, meaning it is important that harmful levels of pollution are identified and treated correctly.
At KDC Veolia, we have expert teams that will offer practical cost-effective solutions and design barriers and treatments to keep the contamination well below acceptable levels. We also liaise with relevant regulatory authorities such as SEPA and the EA on your behalf.
