Downward routing of soil pollutants

Soil Leach - Start



Point sources of pollution present a risk of groundwater and surface water contamination that can last for decades or longer. Soil Leach is a screening tool that identifies sites that are potentially susceptible to the leaching of pollutants to groundwater. It uses simple, rapid and robust methods to calculate pollutant concentrations at a receptor.

The tool quantifies the amount of pollutant that can leach from a point source and the time frame associated with the leaching process.
