Derelict, abandoned and underused buildings may be put to informal and illegal uses, including the manufacture of synthetic recreational drugs. The very nature of such activities poses challenges to those carrying out site walkovers and advising on the need for and scope of remediation if the sites are to be redeveloped, converted or sold.
Manufacture of synthetic chemicals for use as recreational drugs can result in contamination of soil and groundwater with chemicals that are not routinely considered in the investigation of potentially contaminated land. This webinar will describe those chemicals and advise those inspecting or investigating illegal drug manufacturing sites on what to look for and how to sample soil or liquids suspected of being contaminated.
