Project of investigation and management of green sustainable remediation pilot site in Dapinding Spe
The objective of this project is to build up a preliminary action plan for the green sustainable remediation pilot site in Dapinding Specific Urban Planning Area, Kaohsiung City, after the works of the project entitled “Feasibility Study for Sustainable Development of the Contaminated Land in the Dapingding Specific Urban Planning Area, Kaohsiung City” in 2013. In this project, soil and waste samples were analyzed for contaminants in the green sustainable remediation pilot site. Among them, some contaminants such as copper, cadmium, chromium, lead and zinc of seventeen samples exceed soil pollution control standards. Those samples were form lands with nine different land numbers and were from mixed backfill soil and wastes. Groundwater samples were also analyzed and show that contaminants in the groundwater are under groundwater pollution monitoring or control standards. In order to establish an accreditation platform for evaluating waste treatment technologies in the green sustainable remediation pilot site, protocol of choosing, evaluation, operating schedule and check records of treatment technologies were also proposed. The key of developing Dapinding Specific Urban Planning Area in Kaohsiung City is about the sustainable land revitalization of large areas of contaminated or waste-buried lands owned by local citizens. Future land revitalization will be human health risk-based. Lands of imcompletely removal of pollutants will be used only under specific criteria based on the utilization of the lands and surrounding areas to achieve lowest human health risks. Therefore, protocol of risk communication on different stages of remediation and/or revitalization contaminated land were also proposed. It is recommended that solar photovoltaic power generation systems may be more profitable for retrieving regenerated energy in the green sustainable remediation pilot site. In installing PV utilities in the pilot site, it is better to utilized with mat foundation due to the underlying mixed backfill soil and wastes.
