Construction of temporary school building and suspicion of soil and air contamination


St. Eustatius

Soil survey and indoor air survey on the Road to Jenkins Bay

The plan is to construct a temporary school building adjacent to the location of the former landfill. To exclude human toxicology risks, the following works were carried out:

  • Sampling and analysis of the indoor air in the future classrooms in association with the perceived aroma of solvents. Critical parameters: volatile chlorinated hydrocarbons (VOCl), volatile aromatics and mineral oil
  • Sampling and analysis of soil in order to establish the soil quality
