Land contaminated by environmentally hazardous materials can potentially affect the health and amenity of communities and cause surface and ground waters to become contaminated. It represents a burden for future generations.
  1. Legislative Context - Land

    The legislative and policy context for the management of contaminated land in Tasmania
  2. Contaminated Sites

    Contaminated Sites can result from current or historic land uses. The potential for damage to ecosystems or to human health can be significant, and the financial costs of cleaning up a site can be high. The management of contaminated sites, including land and groundwater, in Tasmania, is shared by the EPA Division and local Councils.
  3. Remediation Programs

    The EPA Division co-ordinates the Derwent Estuary Program and the Savage River Rehabilitation Project.
