Contaminated Land Case Study

The challenge

Contaminated land is used to describe land polluted by heavy metals, chemical and radioactive substances, oils, tars, gases and asbestos which could cause significant harm to people or protected species and/or significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater. This definition of contaminated land refers to contamination caused by past uses of sites such as former factories, mines, steelworks, refineries and landfills.
