The site and adjoining properties had been in long-term industrial use for activities including: an iron foundry; a gas works; a lead works; chemical and manure works; and, coal yards, so the potential for land contamination was high.
Background hydrological and geological information was gathered; a site investigation programme included the excavation of trial pits, the installation of boreholes and groundwater / gas monitoring wells; a monitoring programme which included the monitoring of landfill gas and groundwater levels and the sampling and testing of samples was implemented during construction.
