Preliminary Contamination Assessments

Are you planning to subdivide your property?

It is a requirement of council to have the site assessed for potential soil contamination.

A preliminary site investigation is where information is collected and an assessment of information is derived from records of its previous use (preliminary study) and a site inspection, usually with limited sampling.

Samples may need to be analysed in a laboratory, usually for heavy metal contamination.

The preliminary site investigation is to provide sufficient information to determine:

  • Whether there has been potentially contaminating land use;
  • The nature of probable contaminants;
  • The possible locations of contamination; and
  • The nature of the contamination.
