Learn More About Acid Sulfate Soil Management Plans

Acid sulfate soils (ASS) are estuarine sediments containing iron sulfide minerals and produce large amounts of sulfuric acid. The acid can release toxic quantities of iron, aluminium, and heavy metals from the soil. These pollutants can seep into waterways, killing fish and contaminating drinking water. Land uses on acid sulfate soils include residential estates, marinas, sand and gravel extractions, and road constructions. While acid sulfate soil harms the environment, animals, and humans, it can be successfully managed.

Our team can devise an acid sulfate soil management plan to treat the contaminant. However, the appropriate strategy depends on the acid sulfate soil's physical and chemical characteristics and the site's environmental sensitivity. We will survey the area and test the soil to determine the ideal management plan. Our team is ready to use their expertise and experience to help you make the contaminated area livable and productive.

The Preferred Acid Sulfate Soil Management Plan

We have different acid sulfate soil management plans that we can recommend to our clients. Here are some of these strategies.'

  • Avoidance: The most effective way to avoid harm caused by acid sulfate soil is to leave it alone. Avoidance should be attempted at the planning and design stages of the project.
  • Minimal Disturbance: If you cannot avoid acid sulfate soils, ensure their disturbance is minimal. You can re-design the earthwork to avoid areas with high levels of sulfides or deep drainage.
  • Neutralisation: You can mix neutralising or alkaline materials into the acid sulfite soil. Superfine agricultural lime is the ideal choice in this case.
  • Strategic Reburial: This plan involves placing potential acid sulfate soil into a void, where it can always be permanently maintained in oxygen-free and wet conditions. You can cover the void with surface water or groundwater and compacted soil.
