Who pays for the clean up of contaminated land?

If the site is to be re-developed, the cost for clean-up is normally met by the developer. Otherwise we try to trace back the original polluter who will be liable for the clean-up costs under the polluter pays principle. There are specific procedures under Part 2a of the Environmental Protection Act (1990) to allocate liability and costs.
