Acid Sulfate Soils Testing

Acid Sulfate Soils

Acid sulfate soils are the common name given to soils containing iron sulfides. These soils, which occur predominantly on coastal lowlands, may upon disturbance produce toxic quantities of acid and heavy metals leading to contamination of land and waterways along with degradation of structures.
