Environment Agency Updates Soil Test Policy
May 14 2007
Ashtead General Manager James Carlyle welcomed the policy update adding "Laboratory tests can be expensive which tends to minimise the number of samples sent for analysis, thereby rendering the data less representative. In addition, results may not become available for some time which can result in costly delays.
Portable instruments facilitate contamination assessment at multiple points so that ?hot spots' can be quickly identified and results are available immediately so that decisions can be made without delay.
The most popular instruments are X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) instruments for metals contamination and PID gas detectors for the assessment of hydrocarbon pollution. We maintain high stocking levels of these instruments so that they are fully tested and ready to go at a moment's notice."
