Short description: This Industry Profile provides local authorities, owners, developers and anyone else interested in land contamination with information on the processes, materials and wastes associated with individual industries or generic types of land use that may result in radioactive contamination. It is not a definitive study but introduces some of the technical considerations that need to be borne in mind at the start of an investigation for possible land contamination.
