ASSESSMENT OF PETROL STATIONS, Sydney Five Docks
ADE specialises in the Environmental Assessment, Investigation and Remediation of Service Stations throughout Australia.
Experience shows that many service station sites have elevated concentrations of petroleum products in soil and ground water.
Because such elevated concentrations could potentially pose an unacceptable risk to human health and the environment, a site
contamination assessment is quite often necessary.
A soil assessment on the site is focused initially on the location of site utilities, e.g. underground storage tanks, feed lines, pump stations, pits and utility trenches.
The field screening, using a photo-ionisation detector (PID) is conducted to gather information that will make the laboratory analyses more focused.
All the analyses are carried out by a NATA accredited laboratory and are incorporated into the report.
If ground water is encountered, it is collected at the point where the saturated zone meets the unsaturated zone in order to detect any petroleum product. The ground water sampling protocol adopted from the NSW EPA Guidelines is followed.
ADE submits a detailed report in duplicate within 10 working days after completion of the work.
ADE maintains the highest standards of security when conducting environmental assessments. All the details of the investigations are strictly confidential.
