Abstract
Areas polluted by industrial activity are common throughout Sweden. Eslöv is an old manufacturing town with an industrial history dating back to the late 19th century. On behalf of the municipality of Eslöv, the situation of soil pollution in the city has been investigated. The method used in this investigation (MIFO) is developed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
In general the method addresses four parameters: pollutants' inherent hazards, level of pollution, conditions for diffusion and the area’s value regarding flora, fauna and human health. The first parameter measures if pollutants are toxic for people and animals or harmful to the environment. The diffusion conditions refer to all medias in connection to the... (More)
Areas polluted by industrial activity are common throughout Sweden. Eslöv is an old manufacturing town with an industrial history dating back to the late 19th century. On behalf of the municipality of Eslöv, the situation of soil pollution in the city has been investigated. The method used in this investigation (MIFO) is developed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
In general the method addresses four parameters: pollutants' inherent hazards, level of pollution, conditions for diffusion and the area’s value regarding flora, fauna and human health. The first parameter measures if pollutants are toxic for people and animals or harmful to the environment. The diffusion conditions refer to all medias in connection to the investigated object: soil, groundwater, surface water, sediments and buildings. All these aspects are considered in the classification of risk. There are four risk categories in the classification, where category one has the highest risk and category four has the lowest. The method is divided into two phases, which both end up in the classification. Phase one is based on oriented studies, where the possibilities for soil pollution are investigated theoretically, and phase two is based on analyzes of samples from soil or any media influenced by the object. The investigation presented in this report was based on oriented studies of nine objects in the eastern area of Eslöv. Five objects where placed in the second category and the remaining four in category three. All properties in category two are advised to proceed to a phase two-investigation for sampling and analyzes of soil, to determine the actual pollution situation. Remediation of the soil may even be necessary. There are currently no requirements for taking measures on remaining objects, but if changes occur in application of the properties, further investigations should be considered. (Less)
