Wood Processing Site Remediation Tipperary Ireland

IE Consulting/GES Limited are currently managing, supervising and designing the on-going remediation of a former wood processing facility in Tipperary.

Closure of the EPA licence required the excavation and management of residual hydrocarbon and wood preservative contamination.

IE Consulting have been engaged to co-ordinate the remedial works to the satisfaction of the EPA. Works have included;

  • Extensive site investigations and data compilation
  • Groundwater and soil sampling
  • Dewatering well installation
  • Perched groundwater dewatering
  • Bulk excavation of contaminated  soil containing wood preservative
  • Excavation of hydrocarbon contaminated  soil along discrete pathways of migration
  • The risk assessment of residuals
  • Communication with third party stakeholders and the EPA.


The remediation works of the facility will restore the soil to a substantially improved state. The remedial works will allow EPA IPPC licence close out and licence removal.
