WHAT WE DO
Initial Risk Assessment (HAIL) to Remediation and Validation
Our Land Contamination specialists are highly qualified, experienced and respected in their field. They will work with you to find the best possible solution to any land contamination concerns.
Council requirements can include the need for an investigation as to whether land has been historically contaminated. Land contamination is largely caused by past practices in which chemicals have been used, stored and disposed of in a way that is not safe by today’s standards. Common forms of land contamination include pesticides, gas and coal products, petroleum products, PCPs, arsenic and other chemicals.
Contaminated land is a problem when the hazardous substances are at a concentration and/or are located where they have, or are reasonably likely to have, a significant adverse effect on human health and the environment. Contaminated land is a more urgent problem when contaminants are close to buildings and people, or close to bodies of water and important habitats. This is why careful investigation and management is required when land is to be subdivided or developed.
