If you are considering buying a coastal piece of land in order to construct a residence or a business, it is important that you have the ground assessed for acid sulfate soil, preferably before purchasing the land. The same thing goes for the seller; the land should be assessed before the final sale.

Transcript

  • 1. Why Is An Acid Sulfate Soil Assessment Necessary?
  • 2. Acid Sulfate soils are a major concern among both constructors and environmentalists. It is a condition that is very common along coastal areas. The presence of acid sulfate soil can at times determine whether or not land is suitable for constructing.

  • 3. Acid sulfate soil is basically soil that contains iron sulfates. This condition is harmless until it mixes with oxygen. When acid sulfate soil mixes with oxygen it results in sulfuric acid which can have disastrous results to the environment or the building that is constructed upon it.

  • 4. Acid sulfate soil exists mainly in coastal regions, marshes, mangroves, and tidal areas. It also can develop in costal river beds and lakes. The reason that this condition develops coastal areas is simply because it is usually the seawater that provided the sulfate in the soil.

  • 5. Due to storm water erosion and flooding there is a possibility that areas within a certain distance of marshes, mangroves, and tidal areas will also be affected. More info on: http://adgconsulting.com.au/services/acid-sulfate-soil-assessment-management.php
  • 6. The presence of acid sulfate soil does not necessarily mean that one cannot construct on the land, however, it definitely makes the process more complicated, time consuming, and costly. More info on: http://adgconsulting.com.au/services/acid-sulfate-soil-assessment-management.php
  • 7. The first stage is the preliminary assessment phrase, followed by the assessment phrase, the approval phase, and then the implementation phase. The local government will provide you with all of the information that you might need in order to carry out the acid sulfate soil assessment.
  • 8. If you are considering buying a coastal piece of land in order to construct a residence or a business, it is important that you have the ground assessed for acid sulfate soil, preferably before purchasing the land.
