A timely response can minimize the saltwater soil damage. SOS Environmental, Inc. provides a full service team to perform sodic (saltwater) site evaluations, field-testing, saltwater remediation recommendations, application of required amendments, as well as, site managing and monitoring through closure.
“Your proposal to reclaim the site using high activity calcium amendment and leaching with water is a process I have used and support for this site for the following reasons: it uses proven technology, it restores the site to intended land use, it conserves the non-renewable soil resource, and it protects the underlying groundwater resource.”
- Lloyd E. Deuel, Jr., Ph.D., CPSS, PG, Soil Chemist
When needed, SOS Enviromental's Saltwater Spill First Response can provide specialized equipment (tractors, spray trailers, etc.) and field engineers to support your operation. This First Response Chart is to be used as a guideline for treatment of fresh saltwater spills. If the contamination is over 30 days old the soil should be first tested for Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) and Exchangeable Sodium Percentage (ESP) to determine the proper amendment types and quantities. Soil condition and nutrient levels should also be noted. (Click to See Chart)
