Soil quality management

As an entrepreneur you are faced with regulations drawn up to prevent air, soil and water pollution. For example, there are reporting obligations for new soil contamination, usually resulting from a calamity. In addition there are still many seriously contaminated sites awaiting treatment, although the national decontamination operation launched by the government is nearing its completion and all urgent decontamination sites are under control. Soil quality management is an important factor in all these examples.

A well-known example of soil quality management is a site management plan that describes an overall approach to the soil problems at a site. But soil quality management is more than that. In addition to its focus on soil decontamination and the prevention of soil contamination, Tauw also considers the opportunities in the field of underground infrastructure and underground cables. And for the abstraction of groundwater for the production of drinking or process water, and energy storage and generation.

Vision and experience
Tauw advisers have a lot of (inter)national experience, a clear vision on soil quality management along with a customized package of services aimed at handling both existing and new contaminations as well as the way the soil is made use of with a view to making use of opportunities, land development and sound risk management.

As far as we are concerned soil quality management is part of environmental planning. It is just as pragmatic and manageable as other environmental aspects in a spatial plan. This involves taking a number of values into consideration such as the current use of the soil, its future use and the way we experience the use of the soil and its appearance.

Active management
Active management of the soil may contribute to the sustainable development of your company and to corporate social responsibility. Regardless of whether you are an owner or a user, Tauw Takes Care!
