An EPA investigation (assessment) area may be identified by the EPA where information on site contamination identifies the need for potential risks to human health to be assessed within a large area. This will typically be in situations when site contamination has been identified (often groundwater contamination) which extends outside the boundaries of a site under investigation and is identified as affecting adjacent numerous land parcels.
The EPA will actively engage with all affected owners and occupiers of land when the EPA identifies an assessment area may be appropriate.
Information on investigation areas that have been identified by the EPA is available from the links below.
