Contaminated Land Capping

Capping of contaminated land is used to contain and isolate contaminated soils and works to block the pathway between these materials and those that might be using the developed land, protecting human health, ecological risks and groundwater.

At B&A we can provide a complete remedial service, rendering your site safe for workers and future occupants.

What is Capping of Contaminated Land?

Land Capping is commonly formed from low-permeability materials, providing a physical barrier between the contaminated source and receptors, the Land Capping restricts rainwater infiltration into the impacted ground and reduces the potential for leaching of site contaminants into underlying aquifers or nearby water courses.
