Remediation of contaminated site at Altstätten prison

Since autumn 2019, Grundbauberatung-Geoconsulting AG has been carrying out extensive investigations at a polluted site in Altstätten, focussing on the PFAS group of substances (perfluorinated and polyfluorinated chemicals), which has only recently become a topical issue in the field of contaminated site management.

Since the beginning of September 2022, these contaminated sites have been excavated and the area is being remediated step by step.

The TVO Online report provides a brief insight into this work.
