Since 2019, we support the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) in the investigation and remediation of contaminated sites in the Neuchâtel region. In 2020 and 2021, we supported the canton of Vaud in the assessment of the risk level and the prioritization of OSite investigations of sites of their cadastre of polluted sites. Since 2021, we have been supporting the canton of Bern in a project to remediate polluted soils in the Bernese Jura.
The tasks we perform in this context are diverse. It is as much about the work of a project manager in close collaboration with the contracting authority, as about administrative assistance or even study in a decision-making process. For example, during the year 2021, we have organized and conducted, on behalf of the canton of Bern, a campaign of analysis of vegetables from kitchen gardens in plots polluted above the investigation thresholds indicated in Annex 1 of the OSol. The study concluded that the consumption of vegetables from these gardens is not harmful to health.
