Remediation Consultancy, East Wales


Remediation Strategies were retained to undertake an Environmental Risk Review at a former automotive parts manufacturing facility in East Wales. The review was required to assess the extent of any environmental liability prior to the surrender of a lease at the site. Works comprised the review of numerous historical site investigation reports, a detailed site walkover and audit, a review of the available published data for the site including historical mapping and the preparation of a detailed report including recommendations.

Work Scope

The Environmental Risk Review included the following specific components:

  • A detailed description of the site at the time of the audit;
  • Lists of all available site documents and publications;
  • A description of the activities previously undertaken on site (as reported by site staff);
  • A site history, including a review of the available historical maps and documentation;
  • Presentation of the site’s environmental setting (geology, hydrology, hydrogeology etc);
  • A summary of the potential sources of contamination (current and historic);
  • A review of previous site investigation works at the site;
  • The development of a conceptual site model and preliminary risk assessment; and
  • Summary, conclusions and recommendations for further work to quantify identified uncertainties/risk.
