What are contaminated sites?

0

Contaminated sites are areas of land that contain chemical substances (e.g., heavy metals, PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) or petroleum products) that pose or are likely to pose a hazard to human health or the environment or that exceed the levels set out in policies and regulations. Contamination is most often the result of past activities that have had environmental consequences that were not understood at the time.
