If you are purchasing a land or property, subdividing a property or section, change of land use or undertaking earthworks that is registered as “a possible contaminated site” by the Council and you would like to know what type of contamination there and whether the contamination level is above or below the contaminated land management guidelines provided by NES, then you should ask our assistance.
Our Soil Contamination Testing Includes:
Soil testing for residential property or section registered as “possible contaminated site” on their LIM report;
Pre-purchase land contamination lab report can help you to decide prior to purchase;
Soil testing for clean fills, landfills or for disposal;
Land testing of previously used as orchard or horticulture crops for pesticides and fertiliser residues.
Our dedicated Environmental Soil Scientists are up to date with National Environmental Standard for Assessing and Managing Contaminants in Soil to Protect Human Health (NES) and Contaminated Land Management Guidelines for contaminated site investigation, soil testing and interpretation of lab test results.
Our experienced Soil Scientist will come to your site, collect required soil samples, send to IANZ Lab and again we will come back to you with the lab test results alongwith interpretaion and we advise your next steps, accordingly.
Feel free to have a free consultation with our experienced professionals today to know how we can offer a best solution for your project.

Agricultural sites (pesticides, agro-chemicals, livestock-dips, spray race operations);
Agrichemicals including commercial premises used by spray contractors for filling, storing or washing out tanks for agrichemical application;
Former horticultural sites like; orchards, vineyards and market gardens (pesticides residues like; DDT and heavy metals);
Fertiliser manufacture or bulk storage
Pesticide manufacture (including animal poisons, insecticides, fungicides or herbicides) including the commercial manufacturing, blending, mixing or formulating of pesticides
Commercial analytical laboratory sites
Other industrial and commercial sites (various of contaminants including heavy metals, TPH and PAH)
Service Stations (probable leakage from fuel storage)
Wood treatment plants (dioxin and heavy metal contamination)
Any land that has been subject to the migration of hazardous substances from adjacent land in sufficient quantity that it could be a risk to human health or the environment
Any other land that has been subject to the intentional or accidental release of a hazardous substance in sufficient quantity that it could be a risk to human health or the environment
