Hi there,

I'm looking for resources on soil decontamination.  Here in Montreal we're
about to get a new garden "off the ground", so to speak, on land next door
to a former gas station.  We tested and found high levels of aromatic
polycarbons, not to mention lead and zinc, and so we're looking for ways to
create barriers between toxic soil and a the soil we're going to bring in
(1500 square feet, 55 cubic yards).

If anyone has info on the best way to cap the soil (through geotextile
membranes, concrete, or whatever) please send me suggestions.

Also, if anyone has information on government programs to help groups
detoxify land i'd be very interested.

Finally, any resources in general about soil contamination, bioremediation,
and other related topics would be very interesting.  Maybe there's a website
out there that's compiled it?  If not, it may be something we'd be
interested in doing...

Thanks a million,

Kevin Walsh
