The most productive approach is to trace the progress of all raw materials entering the site, from delivery and storage to dispatch as finished products or wastes. 4 illustrates this technique on an oil terminal site. One particular benefit which this type of enquiry can yield is that the chemical analytical strategy, for the main investigation, can be ‘tailored’ to include contaminant forms which otherwise would be overlooked. For instance, if the last manager of the engineering works had advised that enamelling of metal fabrications (using hydroscopic cobalt, chrome and zinc salts) had been a major activity, it would be prudent to include water leachable tests for these metals on soil samples.

From this it can be seen that the river channel was realigned after 1850 and that the Engineering Works was formerly a brickworks. The modern waste tip has clearly been placed into an old quarry, and the area used for coal storage was previously an ash tip, presumably from the adjacent boiler house. Railway links into the waste tip indicate the possibility of imported wastes. The sources of these may be determined by examination of adjacent maps. The oil storage terminal appears to have undergone at least one stage of redevelopment and the names of the quarry and the brickworks are provided.

4). This could then be rapidly checked by excavating only a few trial pits, or drilling one or two deeper boreholes. In contrast, the information needed to ensure that a chosen remediation method will be adequately effective can be more expensive and take much longer to acquire. If preliminary site investigations had revealed that the waste tip, on the example site, was contaminated not only by heavy metals in the ashes which had been tipped there but was also a source of migrating landfill gases, one remediation choice might be to screen out the finer ashes (which usually contain the bulk of heavy metal contamination) and—hopefully—take out, at the same time, the organic fine matter which preferentially generates landfill gases.
