July Webinar: Surveyor’s Role in Contaminated Land Investigation and Remediation

Friday 06 July, 10am - 11am

Assessment of contamination on a property relies on locating objects and activities that may have caused contamination. Historic aerial photographs are an important tool that can help the contaminated land practitioner identify objects and activities that may have caused contamination.

The hard part is setting out the contaminated areas on the property with its current layout. Sheds present in the 1940’s, yards with a potential sheep-dip removed in the 1960’s, a waste-burning area present only in the 1970’s are just a few examples. Most contaminated land practitioners are not well equipped to locate these potentially contaminated areas caused by historical land use. Using the old survey plans, topographic maps with different projection and declination is clearly in the realm of the surveyor.

Cooperation between the contaminated land practitioner and the surveyor is essential for an effective and correct site assessment, and an important step towards successful remediation. This webinar will present a few examples of how crucial the surveyor’s input has been to the success of the detailed and further site investigation.
