Potentially Contaminating Activities


Land Insight has mapped over 400,000+ location of potentially contaminating sites, creating the most comprehensive databases of Potentially Contaminating Activities (PCA) on the market.


What are PCAs?


PCAs (Potentially Contaminating Activities) is a list of industries, businesses, and activities identified as having an increased likelihood of causing contamination, such as Asbestos, Chemical Sites, Fuel Terminals, Waste and Recycling Facilities etc.


The PCA database systematically identifies and classifies the sites into 50 different categories (see table below). The categories were created based on nationwide notifiable activities, and using published state and national guidelines and regulations as a reference.




Potentially Contaminating Activities (PCA) List


The industries and business activities listed above have been identified as having an increased likelihood of causing contamination and have been identified through published state and national guidelines and regulations. These industries are noted due to their potential to store or use substances that could cause contamination to the surrounding environment if not managed appropriately. The identification of these activities does not imply the presence of contamination at the site.
