Flood protection project Chippis (VS)

Flood protection project

Contaminated materials were solubilised during the work as part of a flood protection project on the left bank of the Navizence in Chippis (VS). Ecosens was commissioned to perform the necessary work to sort and dispose of these materials in order to ensure the proper disposal of these materials, to minimise the costs of treating the contaminated materials and to carry out the work within the required deadlines. The execution of this work required specific knowledge in the area of hydraulic engineering and underground loads. Of the 2,400 m3 of excavated material, 1,000 m3 had to be specially disposed of. As part of this project, 670 tonnes of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PACs) were disposed of and the flood protection project was completed within the planned time frame.
