Soil Quality

Raised garden bed with plants

Sometimes the soil around us is unsafe for us to use. This could be because there are harmful chemicals in the ground that can enter our body when we touch them, or it could mean the soil has chemicals in it that can move into your home.

If you are looking for a specific chemical, check out the chemical list.

Our site investigations assess the different ways that people can be harmed by chemicals in the soil or moving through the soil.
