CONTAMINATED SOILS DEPARTMENT (ASC)
The necessary protection and conservation of the soil’s functionality, as well as the need to advance with standardised methodologies which are used to identify and characterise contaminated soil has led to the development of specific regulations. At state level, this development is embodied in the Royal Decree 9/2005 and title V of law 22/2011, regarding contaminated waste and soil. In the meantime, at regional level, there are various autonomies that have passed specific sectoral legislations.
Identifying activities that could potentially pollute soil, establishing Generic Reference Levels (GRL) according to the soil use and the definition of criteria to tackle the assessment of environmental risks are all key elements leading to this legislative advance.</p>
Incorporating groundwater and the development, through a competent hydraulic administration, of an equivalent structure to characterise and evaluate the level of quality is considered a necessity given the inseparable link between both resources (soil and ground water). Even more so as on occasion groundwater is far more vulnerable when faced with situations where soil is affected or contaminated and therefore compromising its functionality and potential utilisation.
The Environmental Division within ADIEGO HERMANOS S.A. has at its disposal a Contaminated Soils Department (ASC) which specialises in the characterisation of soil and groundwater at potentially contaminated sites. This team then evaluates the environmental risks and the development of global technical solutions which allow for the remediation of these contaminated areas.
For those carrying out potentially contaminating activities or who own a site which hosts such activities, the repercussions deriving from these studies can be of far-reaching importance at a juristic level as well as affecting the economic situation, the corporate image and the social impact. Aware of these circumstances, ASC’s activities in ADIEGO HERMANOS S.A. and the commitment to the objectives and necessities of our clients are all geared towards the main principles of technical specialisation, impartiality and our integral commitment to the framework of our activities.
