- Total acid digest concentrations, unless indicated otherwise. Concentrations based on spot samples not composited or bulked. Decrease Tier 1 values to one-half for soil containing less than 10% clay.
- Refer to Alberta soil remediation guidelines for underground storage tanks for site-specific criteria.
- Refer to Alberta 1990 Guide for Disposal of Elemental Sulphur. Up to 500 ug g -1 elemental sulphur may be present providing soil pH (0.01M CaCl 2 ) is at least 6.5 If more than 500 ug g -1 elemental sulphur, lime is required for the total amount; no more than 40000 ug g -1 *(4%) elemental sulphur may be left and treated with lime. To control salinity, lime must contain little (about 2% or less), or no magnesium.
