The Federal Government of Canada required environmental site assessments of several commercial/industrial properties in the Inner Harbor of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Historical research and site inspections were conducted to verify present site conditions.
Based on the results of the initial environmental site investigations, an intrusive detailed site investigation was undertaken at one location. This involved drilling boreholes, installing several groundwater monitoring wells (piezometers) and taking soil and groundwater samples for submission to an analytical laboratory.
Based on the analytical results, the volumes of contaminated soil were calculated with estimates developed for the cost to remediate the site to a level which was acceptable for continued commercial use.
