Contamination of land, sediments, surfacewater and groundwater is an important human health, environmental and economic issue. Affected land can include: residential sites impacted by hazardous building materials such as lead paint or asbestos; large industrial precincts affected by leaking fuel tanks, landfilling and chemical manufacturing; mine sites impacted with acid rock drainage; and entire geographical landscapes affected by pesticide use, nuclear testing or warfare.

SMEC also recognises that the assessment and management of contaminated, or potentially contaminated, natural resources requires consideration of economic and environmental costs, carbon footprints, biodiversity, liability, regulatory compliance, community perceptions, marketability and bankability.
