  • Environmental Liability - owners and occupiers of contaminated land are increasingly aware of their potential liabilities under statutory, common and case law. These liabilities need to be considered during the acquisition or sale of contaminated land to ensure adequate management of risk. In addition the development of contaminated land sites can be influenced by statutory consultees to the planning process, such as the National Rivers Authority and Waste Regulation Authorities.

  • Land Use Appraisal - to ensure that environmental liabilities are minimised owners and potential purchasers of land should conduct a historical land use survey of their site to determine to potential for contamination. This should be backed up with site reconnaissance to determine obvious problems

  • Site investigation - if contamination is suspected a detailed site investigation programme needs to be designed to establish the nature, extent and significance of the contamination. Particular attention also needs to be paid to the health and safety risks of site investigation. The design of an investigation should take into account current guidance from the Department of the Environment, the British Standards Institution and the British Drillers Association.

  • Monitoring of Site Conditions is required in order to assess the environmental impact of contaminated sites or the progress and efficacy of remedial works, cover surface water, ground water, leachate, soil contamination, dust emissions, gas generation, ground conditions, settlement and noise. Dedicated environmental monitoring programmes are an integral part of satisfactory site investigations and remedial works.

  • Groundwater Contamination requires expert investigation and appraisal based on experience of the hydrogeological regimes involved. Control of the costs of clean-up is achieved through hydrogeological evaluation prior to field investigation and instigation of engineering measures. Numerical models play an important role in these investigations. The models are used to refine the conceptual understanding of the hydrogeological systems, to determine the sensitivity of contaminant migration to different variables and to test the plan alternative strategies for groundwater development and restoration.

  • Policy development - we have advised the Contaminated Land Branch of the Department of the Environment for some years, on a number of issues associated with the registers of potentially contaminated land. CES has also drafted and reviewed profiles of contaminative uses of land for the Building Research establishment, to be issued as guidance by the DoE.
