Soil & ground­wa­ter - finite resources

Both soil and ground­wa­ter are vital resources but lim­it­ed in their abun­dance, qual­i­ty and quan­ti­ty. Due to this lim­i­ta­tion, the pro­tec­tion of both goods is in accor­dance with the law, so that a harm­ful con­t­a­m­i­na­tion or any oth­er adverse change in their prop­er­ties can not be obtained.

How­ev­er, harm­ful soil and ground­wa­ter con­t­a­m­i­nants may orig­i­nate from a vari­ety of sources, e.g. Old sites, old deposits, dumps, land­fills, inter­me­di­ate and final stor­age, claims etc.
The trans­port of pol­lu­tants main­ly takes place via the pore water of the unsat­u­rat­ed soil zone into the ground­wa­ter. Pol­lu­tant trans­port depends on the pre­vail­ing pres­sure and con­cen­tra­tion gra­di­ents.
A so-called zero emis­sion is not achiev­able accord­ing to the phys­i­cal laws of mass trans­port. This means that gen­er­al­ly only emis­sion-reduc­ing mea­sures are avail­able.

A CORE COM­PE­TENCE of Fin­ster­walder Umwelt­tech­nik in this con­text is the loca­tion-based assess­ment of the EFFI­CIEN­CY of any back­up or refur­bish­ment mea­sure, regard­less of its design, and thus the long-term EMIS­SION SECU­RI­TY of the site inves­ti­gat­ed. For this we use the emis­sion lim­it val­ue analy­sis devel­oped by us and for eval­u­a­tion our soft­ware DESi Vari­a­tion. Thus, the haz­ard poten­tial of a loca­tion with respect to the pro­tect­ed goods soil and ground­wa­ter is known and can be lim­it­ed from the begin­ning by mea­sures to a tol­er­a­ble val­ue.

Emis­sion lim­it ana­lyzes for the pro­tec­tion of soil and ground­wa­ter, we can u. a. for the fol­low­ing appli­ca­tion areas:

  • Quan­ti­ta­tive ver­i­fi­ca­tion of dis­charge of a land­fill from the after­care
  • Sta­tus sur­vey of a sus­pect­ed area or con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed site
  • Suit­abil­i­ty of a site as an inter­me­di­ate or final repos­i­to­ry
  • qual­i­ty-assured use of min­er­al sub­sti­tute build­ing mate­ri­als or indus­tri­al by-prod­ucts, eg. As waste incin­er­a­tors, in earth struc­tures or for fill­ing of exca­va­tions or frac­tures, etc.
