The Details

A fire pit was identified during a Preliminary Site Investigation of a 4.8 hectare former vineyard site in support of the proposed subdivision of the property into four lot Countryside Living development. Subsequent preliminary and detailed delineation sampling identified an area of soil contamination associated with the fire pit. The contaminated soil was excavated and disposed of as a permitted activity under both the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) and the Resource Management (National Environmental Standard for Assessing and Managing Contaminants in Soil to Protect Human Health) Regulations 2011 (the NESCS). A Permitted Activity Report was prepared to document removal of the soil, validation and proper off-site disposal of the contaminated soil.

“We are pleased to be working with Cato Bolam on the current project. Your professional team was able to identify and handle the contamination problem quickly and cost effectively, without resorting to full-scale remediation. This saved the cost and time for the project. Highly recommend!”
