Managing Contaminated Soil
« All Publications

The increase of urban infill development in North Carolina has caused the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ), Division of Waste Management to reevaluate its regulatory structure for managing urban soils impacted by listed contaminants above applicable regulatory levels from common non-point anthropogenic sources.

Non-point anthropogenic impacts to soils in urban areas from decades of air emissions and stormwater flows are common and can be problematic and costly to address during site redevelopment activities under the current NCDEQ regulatory structure. This panel discussion will highlight how NCDEQ is making changes to more effectively manage urban soils to allow their safe reuse. This emerging trend provides economically viable solutions for managing urban soils and the added public benefit of reducing pressures on available space for State Permitted landfills.
