Land Pollution

Contamination is defined as ‘the condition of land or water where any chemical substance or waste has been added at above background level and represents, or potentially represents, an adverse health or environmental impact’ (National Environment Protection Measure, 1999).

How can I find out whether land is (or may be) contaminated?

If you have concerns regarding contaminated land at your property you can contact an environmental consultant to provide you with advice regarding contamination.  A list of environmental consultants can be found in the telephone directory.

The NSW EPA can also provide advice regarding engaging a contaminated land consultant.
