AIPG Michigan Section Virtual Forum Learning Series presents in partnership with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy Establishing Soil Background for Metals.

Slides from webinar

Abstract Did you know that if an approved soil background concentration for a hazardous substances is greater than a cleanup criterion, the criterion becomes the background concentration? Knowing the soil background concentrations for a facility/site can be a useful tool. Obtaining a soil background concentration for metals can be as simple as looking up the Michigan Statewide Default Background Level on the criteria tables. However, more methods to obtain background concentrations are available that can provide more flexibility. The objective of this webinar is to present different options to obtain soil background concentrations for a facility and to provide a better under-standing of what situations are appropriate to use a soil background concentration.
