Soils Handling

The ever growing surplus of fill within municipalities and the growing need to adequately characterize and handle them has been on the forefront of this new sector being called Geoenvironmental. Soil handling begins with soil characterization and chemical analyzes on small soil import/exports projects but really becomes industry leading science on projects where permit applications for large scale fill placement is required.

The aim and intent of Cambium’s involvement is to provide a viable and feasible approach that satisfies land owners, developers, municipalities and conservation authorities in maintaining the integrity and function of the natural systems that currently exist on fill sites and their adjacent lands. The ultimate goal is to improve the land for agricultural, commercial, industrial or even residential use and adequacy by offering feasible re-grading options.

Cambium facilitates navigation of the regulatory authorities, by-laws and guidelines and understanding of said, to satisfy the respective permitting authorities with the ultimate goal and to devise a work plan aimed at evaluating the adequacy of the site for fill placement to satisfy the needs of all interested parties inclusively.

Accordant with municipal and provincial authorities, larger fill handling projects may include soil chemical analyzes, hydrological studies, species at risk, fauna and flora studies as well as erosion assessments. Municipalities require a comprehensive and detailed report from a qualified person (QP) to demonstrate they are satisfied that the site alteration will not have a negative impact to the fill site or its adjacent lands.
