OHMS ENVIRONMENT HAS THE SKILLS
OHMS Environment has the skills and expertise to undertake investigations of potential or known acid sulfate soils (PASS & ASS) commonly encountered in coastal and estuarine environments and wetlands throughout Western Australia.
OHMS Environment can establish management measures for current or proposed earthworks and/or dewatering activities, undertake ASS investigations and prepare reports and management plans in line with national and state guidance documents, to ensure best industry practice. When left undisturbed, ASS don’t generally pose a significant risk to human or ecological health.
When ASS are disturbed (i.e. earthworks or dewatering) the exposure of the soils to atmospheric conditions can result in the generation of acidic landscapes. Earthworks and dewatering activities within ASS formations need to be managed appropriately to prevent environmental harm and damage to buildings and infrastructure.
