Suspected sulphide soil in landfill at Stöcke, Umeå (English)
In the north of Sweden lots of the soil is naturally contaminated by acid sulfate. When soil gets in contact with oxygen an oxidation process begins which releases elements that may be harmful to the surroundings. When the Botniabanan was built, soil had to be transported from the railroad area to deposit sites. This study was made to investigate the suspicions a landowner had regarding if his estate had been contaminated sulphide soil soil during the building of the Botniabanan. To do that four pits were dug in the area where the soil had been deposited. Then the soil was analyzed to see the content of sulfate, iron, organic matters and water. When the results was compared to other studies it showed that the content of sulfate and organic matters was to low to classify the soil as an acid sulfate soil.
