Mr Christian Wallis

Principal Scientist & EPA appointed Auditor (Contaminated Land)

Golder Associates Pty Ltd          

Our industrial heritage, combined with lower environmental standards for much of the last 150 years has resulted in parts of our urban soil environment becoming contaminated.

In 2015 we celebrate the International Year of Soils. Healthy soils are important for the ongoing viability of our urban areas by nourishing parks/backyards, food growing, biodiversity and filtering contaminants.

Join Christian Wallis to explore the practices that have caused soil contamination, their impacts and the measures that can be applied to support urban renewal for healthy communities.
