Dealing With Contaminated Soil on Construction Sites
August 18, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm PST +0
Contaminated soil can cause havoc on the environment as well as humans and animals alike.
Contaminates can seep into the water supply system, affect our food supply chain and quality of air.
Dealing with contaminated soil at your construction site can also create legal liabilities, cleanup costs, and delay your project.
That’s why there are rules and regulations and cleanup procedures that require your attention.
Whether you’re a landowner or a construction developer, it’s your responsibility to test the soil you are dealing with and assess if soil cleanup or land remediation is required.
Join us at noon on Wednesday, August 18, for a live interactive webinar where you’ll learn:
- Type of contaminates and how they impact land use
- Who is liable for the cleanup costs and possible legal liability fees
- What to do if you find contaminates on your site or property
