Polluted soil and groundwater remediation

Knowledge of the fate of pollutants in the air, soil and water and their effects on humans and ecosystems has increased tremendously in recent decades. Industrial firms, governments and local authorities now go to great lengths to assess risks, manage harmful emissions, monitor contamination sources and clean up contaminated sites. Artelia conducts historical and site characterisation studies, performs human health quantitative risk assessments, evaluates risks for water resources and the environment, proposes management strategies including monitoring, containment and remediation, and designs and supervises brownfield site rehabilitation works. The studies and technical assistance services offered by ARTELIA Eau & Environnement's Polluted Sites and Soils team in the field of polluted site and soil management comply with standard NFX31-620-1-2-3.
