Land Science was instructed by the client to conduct a Phase II Geo-environmental investigation in Brookwood Cemetery, Woking. A series of Dynamic (windowless) Sampler boreholes were excavated along with Trial Pits with the aim of recovering samples for geochemical testing. Monitoring wells were also installed for a programme of long-term monitoring. BRE365 soakage tests were also carried out.
Due to the sensitive nature of the site, careful consideration to not disturb those visiting was taken. Effective communication with the owners of the site to arrange access and determine working hours was also a requirement.
