What do we mean by potential or possible contamination?
Victoria Unearthed brings together various existing datasets about the condition of land and groundwater throughout Victoria. The purpose of Victoria Unearthed is to help individuals make their own further enquiries about the condition of land and groundwater.
In Victoria Unearthed, when we refer to potential or possible contamination, we are not necessarily suggesting that there is a basis for concluding that a particular location is contaminated.
Victoria Unearthed must only be used as a starting point for enquiries, and any person with a particular interest in a specific location must make their own further enquiries about the actual condition of the land or groundwater.
In general, only qualified and experienced environmental professionals should be consulted about contamination.
