Naturelinks were given the responsibility to restore a large hydrocarbon contaminated sandy soil site. The soil was so contaminated that the ecological system was under threat.
Our challenge was to rehabilitate the site by determining the most appropriate soil and plant species to restore the area.
Our knowledgeable team worked in conjunction with Enviropacific to undertake growing tests with treated soils to determine the best soil and plant species for the site. All plant species were chosen based on ecological factors and ecosystem requirements to achieve the best outcomes.
During the planting phase, each individual plants location and species was mapped through our GIS mapping system.
A 12 month plan was established to control the weeds and promote the ongoing success of the revegetation process.
Due to the site being under high security, our professional staff were required to work under the supervision of a client representative at all times as well as being escorted on and off site at the beginning and end of each day.
1 year on this highly disturbed area is now flourishing with flora and fauna as a high quality ecological site resembling an intact EVC. We provided the customer with an in-depth map of all planted species and locations for future reference and planning.
The project is now complete with all goals and outcomes reached.
