Sarah Mortimer, our newest member of staff, has got off to a flying start with one of her first projects – a gas risk assessment for a former landfill at Gapton Hall in Great Yarmouth.
The site, a former railway cutting, was backfilled in 1973/4 with a combination of domestic and trade waste and is surrounded by industrial developments, some of which have basements.
A thorough risk assessment produced by EPG, which included gas generation and migration modelling, demonstrated that the risk to nearby developments was low and it did not meet the statutory definition of contaminated land under the Part IIA legislation and as such there was no need for further site investigation or open ended gas monitoring on the site.
Our client was delighted with the work undertaken and subsequent outcome and commented: “We found your report well laid out and easy to read and we are very pleased with the work you have done for us.”
If you have a complex landfill gas site and are being told it will need a lot of site investigation, gas monitoring or expensive remediation measures; please pick up the phone and call EPG as we offer as part of our service to undertake a complimentary initial review to assess whether we can be of assistance.
