The YCLF was established in 2007 by a group of professionals including ESG’s Zoe Cooper, in order to bring together land quality practitioners across Yorkshire. The forum has quarterly meetings to discuss topical land quality issues including soil, water and groundwater affected by contamination. At meetings, the forum work collectively towards increasing communication, sharing best practice, discussing legislation and ultimately improving land quality. YCLF membership includes environmental consultants, remediation contractors, property developers, local authorities, other regulators, planners, academics as well as a broad range of other relevant professionals.
At the upcoming meeting on 27 November, Andrew Clamp, ESG’s technical manager for Environmental Chemistry, will present on, ‘The Analysis of Chromium VI in Environmental Samples’.
Andrew commented: “The YCLF is a great platform to showcase what services ESG offers in regard to sampling, testing and analysing soil and water. The presentation will discuss the background surrounding the chemistry of chromium and how ESG can test and analyse samples of soil and water for chromium VI”.
