Ecologia has recently commenced remediation of a former brownfield site in Ashford Kent earmarked for residential end use.  The site is affected by contaminants likely to originate from its proximity  to a former  gasworks site.  The remediation works consist of selective excavation, screening, sorting and placement of a capping layer.  Any unsuitable material will be disposed of off site to an appropriately licensed facility for treatment or disposal. Shallow  groundwater encountered during excavation will be treated  using an Ecologia’s proprietary water treatment system.  The works are scheduled to be carried out over a five month period and are part of a larger overall regeneration scheme for Ashford.
