Soil - contaminated

Soil contamination is part of soil degradation caused by human activities or changes to the natural soil environment. The soil is considered contaminated when the concentration of chemicals, nutrients, or other elements in the ground is higher than the standard concentration. Soil contamination may harm living organisms in the soil, resulting in soil pollution. Soil contamination may affect the growth of plants that depend on it. The soil contaminants may also be infiltrated into groundwater and cause pollution which will place the water users at risk.
