Soil Remediation: Step-by-Step Treatment

Soil Remediation: Step-by-Step Treatment Procedure


soil remediator equipment in new jerseySoil remediation involves the removal of impurities found in the land, ground-water supply and bodies of water.  Due to some difficulties of a typical soil treatment, expert’s advice is important to obtain success on the job.  Typically, the procedure starts with the two basic elements: consultation with the local area (municipality) and choice of provider (company) that will perform the soil remediation.

The efforts involved have the usual average to critical setup stage which has a potential impact on the neighbourhood within the community.  This is the reason why orders from the municipality are constantly followed making it as the job’s standard operating system.  Successively, remediation solution providers must be evaluated and be chosen based on the specific need of the treatment.

Step-by-Step Procedural Flow of Soil Remediation

Professional contractors should apply the four typical steps when they purify and restore the soil’s original condition:

1. Locate 

For this stage, the root cause of the contamination, the polluted areas, and the location history should be fully identified.  Detailed knowledge on this will give the specialist the present overall activities of the soil.  Potential problems occurring on the land can be easily determined.

2. Describe 

Just after the pollutants are found, materials will be inspected and studied to define the level of danger, toxicity, and risk.  There are certain chemicals that require laboratory test in making conclusion about the properties of the soil.

3. Chose then Execute

After inspecting the area and determining the elements in the site, the contractor will choose the best system to use related on the problem information.  For crucial toxins, ex-situ treatment or off-site is considered the best in fully removing the soil impurities.  Contaminants are treated in other location.  On the contrary, in-situ method is accepted when there are instances of soil pollutants coming from dirty ground water.

4. Follow Through 

After a few weeks following the accomplishment of the process, the provider should do post-procedure valuation to know if the adopted procedure is really successful or not.   They will figure out if possible recurring problem may happen again in the future.  Such step ensures that what is given to clients is an excellent service.

When the right method is applied with applicable resources, the manner of soil remediation is really simple and easy.  That is why experts’ services are always expected to give advice and guidance to clients.  Important information must be provided so that no difficult situation will surprisingly happen while the project is being done.

Topsoil From Bluemel’s Garden Center

Topsoil From Bluemel’s Garden Center

video synopsis on topsoil by: Joanne A.

topsoil new jerseyBluemel’s Garden and Landscape Center offers a huge selection of bulk products such as mulch, topsoil, sand, stone, and decorative stone right in the Milwaukee area.

When it comes to bulk landscape materials, Bluemel’s Garden and Landscape Center is the place to go. We carry over 35 varieties of bulk landscape mulches, soils, sands, grave and decorative stone. And better yet, we’re the only place in the Metro Milwaukee area that has these products always on stock and ready for pick up or delivery 7 days a week. Let’s take a moment to view these products, as well as give you a little bit of a description on what these products are used for.

When it comes to decorative stone, nobody competes with, Bluemel’s Garden and Landscape Center. We have over 20 varieties of decorative stones always in stock. As you can imagine, this creates a lot of options for you in picking up a decorative stone. Each one has its own unique look. Size, color and texture vary and we encourage you to stop in and check these stones out for yourself.

Moving on to wood mulches; all wood mulches serve the same purpose and that they retain moisture for your plants, suppress weeds, control erosion, and add a decorative element to the landscape. Wood mulch would generally last about 2 years if installed in a 3 inch tap. We offer 4 natural mulches and 3 colored mulches. Our white seeder mulch is rich in color and has the pleasant smell of seethe. The natural oils in this mulch act as a bug repellant but also as a natural preservative which makes this our longest lasting mulch. Although they look like seeder chips, our playground chips are actually made of chip pallets of various hardwoods. Although they are generally used on playgrounds, they look quite decorative in a landscape as well. Our safety chips, also known as certified chips, serve the same purpose of our playground chips but have a more shredded consistency. Our hardwood mulches are double shredded mulch made mostly of oak. Because it’s double shredded it has a very petty consistency which gives it excellent moisture retention. It’s also very dark in color. If you want to go green, then go with the colored environ mulch. We offer red, gold and dark brown. These mulches are considered a green product because they are made of recycled pellets and colored with environmentally safe dyes that will not harm animals or children. Expect the color to last about two seasons before you start to see fading.

When it comes to construction stones we have 8 different options; we carry ship stone, colored round stone, traffic bonds, peed gravel you name it. Whether you are putting in drain tile, putting in a patio, maybe installing a retaining wall, we have all of the construction products you’re going to need to complete your project.

Bluemel’s offers two types of sands; we offer washed play sand and torpedo sand. The washed play is a good material for children’s sand boxes; it also works really well underneath pavers, or as a base for swimming pool. The torpedo sand is very similar to the play sand but it contains small pebbles and this sand can be used to make concrete, and it also works well underneath the pavers.

Bluemel’s offers 4 different types of bulk soils. We offer brown topsoil, blended topsoil, garden soil and blended compost. We constantly get asked what the main uses are for these soils so I want to go over a little bit more I depth at what these soils are consist of and what they are used for.

Our brown topsoil is a heavy, clayey soil that is used for filling large holes or pitching water away from foundations. Our blended topsoil is a 50-50 mix of black soil and brown soil. This soil is ideal for planting grass seed or laying sod. The black soil that is added makes the topsoil a bit lighter so seed germination and sod growth is quicker. Our garden soil is a blend of black and brown soil, sand bark and peed humus which makes this the ideal soil for flower beds and tree or shrub plantings. Our blended compost is broken down grass clippings and other plant matter. It does not contain any animal manure. This is an excellent choice for amending to your soil, or if you just want to rejuvenate last year’s planting bed.

I do want to point out that these are a bulk soil and are in different consistencies over bag soils. They’re screened, but they’re screened for large debris and field stone only. I also want to point out that these soils are tested for contamination and are not treated with any chemicals.

So as you can see, Bluemel’s carries a complete selection of landscape materials for any sized garden or landscape project. Oh I almost forgot to mention, we carry a full selection of bag products and fresh sod and straw delivered daily. So remember when it comes to landscape materials, no one – and I mean no one – does it better than Bluemel’s Garden and Landscape Center.

Manufactured Topsoil For Farm Restoration

Manufactured Topsoil For Farm Restoration

video synopsis on topsoil by: Joanne A.

topsoil south jersey


Farm restoration using RMI’s manufactured topsoil.

Discover the benefits of using manufactured topsoil through a first-hand account. Here are some ideas.

In October of 2005, Alstead, NH experienced massive flash flood. Gene and Bobbie Wilson lost everything.

BOBBIE:   Yeah we were the 6th house from the cover and we’re now the 2nd house. So it gives you an idea. It took both our barns, destroyed about 5 to 7 acres, took all our vehicles except the one I drove off, damaged our house really bad where it was condemned, and took all our farm equipment.

SHELAGN CONNELLY:   They’ve got some assistance but fairly limited, and there was not assistance to address the loss of their topsoil, all of their fields were gone. So they had approached the governor’s office…

BOBBIE:   …and they came out and looked at it, and they seemed very interested and they were going to try to do something to help us.

SHELAGN CONNELLY:   But there really wasn’t a program set up for the land portion of it.

BOBBIE:   Charlie Hanson came, I remember that and he was great.

CHARLIE HANSON:   Bobbie told me the story of what their goal was for that farm;  at the time it was very poignant, that Gene was over in Iraq…

BOBBIE:   …he (Gene) had left two weeks before the incident, yeah.

CHARLIE HANSON:   And Bobbie told me there’s a story about – that they were getting ready to retire and what their goal in retirement was – was to purchase this family farm and to farm it.

BOBBIE:   We even tried to live and try to grow trees and down there and try to see if we could grow something in it, and they died. Nothing would grow down in this field, it was all rocks, and down to bare ground.

CHARLIE HANSON:   I know that this was – this was the perfect application for a regenerated topsoil program. We decided that we were going to try to make this project work no matter what.

SHELAGN CONNELLY:   When we pursued this idea and went to the Department of Environment and Services we understood that this particular location doesn’t fit the regulatory framework that’s established her in New Hampshire. And about that time we were actually meeting with Executive Counselor Burton on some other things and I mentioned this story to him and told him about how they lost so much and Counselor Burton got on the phone with the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Environment and Services and he set up a meeting with these agencies.

RAY BURTON:   So we put together a meeting over at the Environmental and Services with Commissioner Tom Burack and his people and we said “Look, can’t we put this land back together?”

SHELAGN CONNELLY:   So they wrote a provision in their permit to allow for us to work at a mixing location, and then we were able to truck that material in and place it for the Wilson’s on their original field footprint.

CHARLIE HANSON:   … Topsoil, like you would find in nature in a farm field, something that can grow vegetation using base materials; sands, low grade fill and residuals – by products. We have had the paper products much like the peat moss just a good source for organic matter, and then we’ll use bio-salts which is basically a fertilizer. And we have just completed it in 2008, this first year you are going to see basically a cover crop, due to time constraints the goal is just to keep a cover crop on it until such time that Gene retires. And he’s able to spend full-time growing vegetable crops.

BOBBIE: I think this is really good to have, something recycled and we could show in a couple of years we’ll be growing things on it. So it’s kind of – it’s exciting! It’s exciting for my husband because this has just been devastating, this puts us back, you know, puts us back where he can do a little more to make it a farm again.

CHARLIE HANSON:   There’s always a need for this type of program and now we have established that there can be a successful model to make this work.

PAT HANNON:   The Wilson farm; that was an extraordinary circumstance, and we were very pleased to be a part of it and we were very happy that it was a successful project for both the farmer and the environment.

BOBBIE:   It was a beautiful piece of property, it doesn’t look the same, but it’s going to be pretty again.

Who would think remanufactured topsoil could be used to restore a farm again?

Building New Topsoil

Building New Topsoil

video synopsis on topsoil by: Joanne A.

topsoil new jerseyHere, Brian and Darren explain how to build new topsoil as one of the farm basics.

NARRATOR:   Weather and life both change quickly. Do you have a farm estate plans? You need to learn the best option to help your family avoid or minimize federal state taxes and other costs.

BRIAN SWENSON:   I’m Brian Swenson, President of Swenson Investments & Commodities. We work confidentially with farmers, ranchers and advisors, to help develop the best farm estate plan.

During a farm basics (inaudible 0:26), we’re going to talk about how a person can build new topsoil.

SPEAKER 1:   How do you do that? It sounds challenging. It can’t be done, can it?

SPEAKER 2:   Well here’s one of those things that – when I was a kid and I was in school I learned that topsoil, if it erodes, it’s just a terrible thing because it takes forever, literally forever,  to build more topsoil. And that couldn’t be further from the truth. Now, the erosion part was right on the money, you don’t want to have erosion problems at all. But if you have had an erosions problem like I have on some of my ground that I have just picked up here in the last couple of years, how do you fix that? How do you build that topsoil back up? That’s what we want to talk about today.

SPEAKER 1:   Okay so, where these all starts is, in a lot of cases, we have hilltops throughout the Unites States and really around the world, hilltops that have been eroded through wind erosion and rainfall erosion, and basically that topsoil’s now gone and so in some cases where either down to the sub-soil or we only have a little bit of topsoil left. Ideally, to raise good crops, we’d like to have at least 8 inches or even a foot of topsoil out there. That would be great. So, how are we going to build that? We’re going to start with raising high residue crops.

SPEAKER 2:   Well the importance of high residue crops all comes back to building organic matter in our soils, that’s one of the most important things as you’re trying to build new topsoil. SO the way you could do that is  by doing less tillage and raising higher residue crops. So on our farm, for example, we’re raising crops like corn and wheat. They are higher residue crops than a crop like soybeans for example. So you plant more corn and more wheat and leave that root mass intact, we could build up our organic levels in our soil.

SPEAKER 1:   Just to give you an example real quick, with corn, it’s said that corn has about 5 times the root mass than soybeans. And what the studies have shown is if you could leave root mass intact, that’s the best overall way to build organic matter. And that would help build topsoil as time goes on. So we want to raise these high residue crops, we’ll do less tillage – less walls to help build that new topsoil that we’re going to create. We’re going to want to add manure because manure not only has a bunch of good nutrients in it; it also has beneficial bacteria and fungi. In addition to that, we’ll probably use some beneficial bacteria and fungi with products like quick roots or biological products we could add to the soil. So you do all these things and over time, you actually can build new topsoil. We’ve seen it even on our own farm, where we’ve been able to build topsoil literally in streaks, especially where we have injected manure deep down into the soil. You can see a different color where we put that manure a few years before. We’ve built new topsoil. And that’s a lot of fun because that topsoil is so much more productive than sub-soil.

SPEAKER 2:   It is important that as you build new topsoil, to manage it properly. If there was erosion before on the same hilltops that you’re farming now, you have to change the farming practices that were done on those hilltops to preserve that topsoil. So that means, likely, less tillage going forward. Maybe the roads are going down the hill and you can go across instead, so water doesn’t just run off the hill. It’s not easy to build new topsoil so it does take some concerted effort. But to do it, you have to be conscious of the problems that where there before and solve those as well.

SPEAKER 1:   So quite often when we’re talking about topsoil and subsoil, the topsoil is going to have a dark color to it, the sub-soil will, generally speaking, have a lighter color to it. So when you dig away – you have a soil cut away, you dig down in the soil, you can literally see topsoil – darker; sub-soil – less dark or sometimes it’s even bright yellow.

SPEAKER 2:   Well it just falls in line with the thinking of the American farmer. You want to try and leave things in better condition than when you got them. So if you can build more topsoil, your soils will be more productive and then as you raise healthy crops, and that residue breaks back down and the nutrients are released back into the soil, you build up the overall fertility in that soil and that’s a good thing for crops going forward.

SPEAKER 1:   Yeah, so the farmer who’s trying to build topsoil is going to focus on having good soil ph, good nutrient levels, raising a good crop, having good drainage out there; just every factor possible to raising a good crop and over time, you can build that new topsoil. Now that’s not going to happen overnight, but in a 10 or 20 year period, you can build inches of topsoil.

SPEAKER 2:   Well all that is important especially when you’re trying to control our weed of the week. Can you identify this week’s weed?

So, who’s up for the challenge or rebuilding your own topsoil?

Using Manufactured Topsoil

Using Manufactured Topsoil

video synopsis on topsoil by: Joanne A.

Watch your crops grow using manufactured topsoil.

Topsoil regeneration is a process by which we are able to make soil products from residuals and then you would use it like you would use a conventional lawn.

So the process of topsoil regeneration is basically making topsoil, like you would find in nature in a farm field something that can grow vegetation using base materials like sands, low-grade fill and residuals by-products. We have had a paper fiber that is much like the pit moss, just a good source for organic matter. And then we’ll use bio salts which are basically a fertilizer.

And we blend those together with the sand and then take and use that loader as a giant mixer, and pick up the topsoil, flop it and push I up into the pile. By the time that soil is then taken from that pile, pallet wherever it’s going to be used, set on the ground and bulldoze down like you would a normal lawn; it’s very thoroughly mixed.

The way a typical topsoil regeneration program works is, we’ll be working with an end-user that has a disturbed land – gravel pits are a great example or sand pits. So you have all these barren properties; so we use typical construction equipment, like a bulldozer and a loader, it’s like they’re making a big cake, you just blend together certain amounts of the certain ratio and you end up with a balanced nutrient topsoil.

Then that topsoil, that finished blended product, is bulldozed out, typically on a nine inch layer, and seeded and used just like regular topsoil. The beauty of it is, of course, we can do these in a matter of weeks; we can reclaim acres and acres of land that didn’t take one drop of native topsoil. So farm fields don’t get stripped or anything like that.  And then it’s seeded and then we monitor it for fertility and make sure the vegetation grows.

Typical crops are grass, different grass species, although we have done some specialty types where we convert them right into farm fields; we’ve grown sweet corn on it, we’ve also done wet ones project. The beauty of this program is we can make a topsoil if it’s just about any need, we can grow anything.

There you go, manufactured topsoil at its best!
