Acid Sulfate Soils

SESL Australia has qualified Environmental Consultants that can assess your site and test for the presence of Acid Sulfate Soils and develop a Management Plan for your site, ready for use by site staff or contractors.

These soils are normally safe and harmless when not disturbed however if they are dug up or drained and come into contact with oxygen they can cause major damage to steel and concrete structures, plants, animals and waterways. It is critical that you know where they are, how to manage the risk and what to do if they cause problems.

For more than 30 years we have applied our extensive knowledge of water and soil to built a reputation for delivering technically sound and documented reports. That allow for efficient review and approval from the regulatory authorities.
