It is possible to order the clean-up of land which is considered 'contaminated. Land is contaminated when there are polluting substances in, on or under the land. This may mean that the substances have been left in buildings or on land or that the substances are buried in the ground. It doesn't really matter what these substances are providing they are giving rise to significant harm or water pollution.
If a source of pollution in terms of substances left on the land have a pathway through which the pollution can reach a target then we call this a pollution linkage. Examples of pollution linkages would include:
· Asbestos from a derelict building travelling through the air to affect people nearby.
· Spilt oil travelling through the drainage system to a nearby river.
· Chemicals in leaking drums travelling down through the soil into an underground water supply.
· Air emissions from a factory being carried by the wind to a nearby nature reserve which is being harmed as a result.
