What causes land contamination?

Land contamination can arise from a variety of processes, from heavy industries to flytipping. Much of the contaminated land in Scotland is associated with our industrial legacy, including from manufacturing and mineral extraction (such as coal). Land contamination can also be caused by natural events such as flooding; fuel and oil spillages, demolished buildings, military sites and lanflytipping.

How do you deal with land contamination?

Every site is different and the way contaminated land is dealt with will vary depending on factors including the extent of contamination, the contaminants present, and the end-use of the site. To compile a remediation plan for a site, several steps must be undertaken to begin with in order to satisfy the regulatory bodies (normally the Local Authority) that the site is now safe. These include a Phase 1 Desk Study and a Phase 2 Site Investigation.
