Industry digs in UK for soil management and remediation solutions for Ontario

In late September a small delegation from Canada was warmly welcomed by those involved in soil management and remediation in the United Kingdom.

This fact-finding mission was a way to determine best practices used in the U.K. for reusing excess construction soils. We were given the strong sense that there is an overarching mission with respect to the sustainable development of land and that organizational structures are put in place to help achieve these aims.

For instance, SuRF UK, or the Sustainable Remediation Forum, has made progress in the use of advanced decision support frameworks and tools to plan redevelopment of brownfield and other development projects.

Our first meeting was convened with those who are addressing soil management for the 118-km Crossrail project. A 21-km tunnelled section connecting central London with Canary Wharf will generate 6.0 million tonnes of earth, of which, 4.5 million tonnes will be taken off-site via trains and ships to create a new nature reserve at Wallasea Island.

By way of comparison, the 19 km Eglinton Crosstown LRT project, which will be underground for 10 km, will generate nearly 3.0 million tonnes of clean excess soil.
