    Geotechnically, a contaminated soil will behave in very much the same way as an uncontaminated soil. Contamination of whatever nature, ie hydrocarbons or VOCs, will be held within the soil matrix either in a dissolved phase within the pore fluid, free phase within the pore space or as a coating around the soil particles themselves.
