It does depend on who you ask, as that’s me then I’ll tell you what it means to an environmental remediation contractor.
Soil remediation is, broadly speaking, solving a problem you have with a soil. Problems can be structural and/or environmental, solutions exist which conquer both. Environmental problems are generally caused by contaminants, substances in the soil which are either causing an undesired effect, or have the potential to cause an effect in the future.
Remediating environmental problems can be done in many many ways,
Treatment – we can ‘treat’ the soils to reduce contaminant concentrations to ‘safe’ levels,
Physical removal – we can remove the contaminant (and therefore the problem),
Stabilisation – we can tie the contaminants up in the soil so that it no longer causes a risk.
