In simple terms, environmental restoration is a set of sciences concerned with the removal of pollutants and pollution from all kinds of environmental environments, including surface water, sediment, groundwater and soil, for the benefit of the environment and human health.
Environmental remediation is practiced worldwide, although in practice different government agencies have imposed different regulatory requirements. One of the most stressed ecological environments is soil. In this regard, one of the most common types of environmental technology is excavation.
Soil Compaction is a simple process that takes contaminated soil from its original location to a regulated landfill where it is treated either by aeration or with VOCs or volatile organic compounds. Excavation is one of the simplest types of environmental remediation in practice.
As you might expect, excavation has many uses in civil engineering. This includes the construction of embankments, canals, embankments, dams, sidewalks, track beds and roads. However, excavation work can also be used for terrain redesign, for example for slope stabilization, terrain topography, and terrain alignment.
The development of draglines and other digging machines revolutionized earthwork construction. This includes draglines, excavators, bulldozers, graders, production trucks and loaders.
The fact is that excavation has many practical uses, but its main goal remains environmental restoration. Talk to your local government agency if you suspect the site is contaminated and would like the site to be excavated for treatment.
