    Presentation Title: Contaminated Land & Soil Waste Management in the Construction Sector in Ireland

    Presentation Synopsis:
    My talk will cover environmental and waste legislation relating to soil waste acceptance criteria and disposal and best practice as it applies to land contamination. The content and suitability of site investigation, soil classification and remedial action plan reports for construction projects will be assessed.

     Learning objectives

    • Legislation in Ireland dealing with contaminated land and soil waste acceptance criteria in the context of construction projects;
    • How regulators (i.e. local authorities and EPA) in Ireland enforce when dealing with brownfield development projects (we look at some Dublin case studies);
    • We look at current soil waste management/disposal infrastructure in Ireland and its limitations (i.e. waste licence landfills, waste permitted infills and Article 27 Sites);
    • We look at groundwater contamination, dewatering techniques, discharge licensing and common problems encountered; and
    • We look at building contractor’s requirements for sustainability certification systems (BREEAM, LEED, CEEQUAL, etc) with regard to contaminated land management.
