Soils Handling

Soils Handling


The goal of Cambium’s soils handling service is to provide a viable and feasible approach that satisfies landowners, developers, municipalities, and conservation authorities in maintaining the integrity and functionality of the natural systems that currently exist on fill sites and their adjacent lands.

The ever-growing surplus of fill within municipalities and the increasing need to adequately characterize and handle them has been on the forefront of this emerging market. Soil handling begins with chemical analysis on small soil import/exports projects but really becomes industry leading science on projects where soil characterization is needed to permit applications for large-scale fill placement.

Our ultimate goal is to improve the land for agricultural, commercial, industrial or even residential use and adequacy by offering feasible re-grading options. Cambium will facilitate navigation of the regulatory authorities, by-laws and guidelines to satisfy the respective permitting authorities and devise a work plan aimed at evaluating the adequacy of the site for fill placement to satisfy the needs of all interested parties inclusively.

Cambium can provide you with a comprehensive solution to both small and large scale soil handling projects. We facilitate the approach to large-scale fill sites by developing and conceptually implementing a detailed, site-specific soil management plan (SMP) that keeps both source and receiving sites operating within the scientific realm of predetermined site criteria. Cambium can also provide all of the services that may be required by municipal and provincial authorities for larger fill handling projects which can include soil, surface and groundwater chemical analysis, hydrogeological and hydrological studies, species at risk, flora, fauna and terrestrial studies as well as sediment and erosion control assessments.

Our qualified professionals will provide a comprehensive and detailed report for the municipalities and regulatory authorities to demonstrate that the site alteration will not have a negative impact to the fill site or its adjacent lands.
